Bernard Lewis is the single

Bernard Lewis is the single most learned living person on the subject of Islam, and on the subject of Islam and the West. He is a true scholar who brings a lifetime of learning to his examination of the war we are in. It should be noted that Lewis’s essay “The Revolt of Islam,” posted below by Deacon, was originally published in the New Yorker last year shortly after 9/11 and recently republished on the New Yorker’s Web site. It is outstanding. Today the Washington Post carries Professor Lewis’s “Targeted by a history of hatred,” a shorter piece that also displays Professor Lewis’s myriad virtues.
