Even the most casual Power

Even the most casual Power Line reader has noted that we are strong defenders of Israel. We have viewed with alarm the worldwide tide of anti-Semitism that has risen over the past several years. I, for one, fear that the United States may be the only power standing between the Jewish people and another calamity. If this sounds alarmist–and I certainly hope it is–check out this item from The Volokh Conspiracy. Canadian customs authorities have seized pamphlets advocating Israel’s right to exist as possibly illegal “hate propaganda.” The seized materials can be viewed here. This is the kind of sinister effort to undermine Israel’s legitimacy, presumably as a prelude to its obliteration, that is going on in many countries. It also offers a glimpse of where America’s current infatuation with the concept of “hate speech” will lead if it is unchecked.
