    I noticed that you haven’t kept up your Augean Stables blog for awhile. I figured at first that you were busy with the beginning of the semester at B.U., but it’s been over a month, so I was wondering if you were okay.

  2. Judith Rosay says:

    Richard,we miss your blog,please come back

  3. Cathy Benson says:

    Glad to see you back

  4. David says:

    Dear Mr Landes,

    Your lengthy writings are best when read on paper. However, the new website seems to have omitted the “print” option, why?

  5. PW Virginia USA says:

    excellent writing…I only wish the MSM would print this so that the less concerned would get a clearer point of view…I looked for a spot to forward this but couldn’t find it.

  6. ED says:

    I have always admired your analysis of world events. You explain things in a simple and straight forward way that makes sense of what on the surface is weird and inexplicable.

  7. asherpat says:

    Can you have an RSS feed of the website? I await your articles, but it will be easier to have an RSS feed.

  8. mark says:

    Dear Professor Landes,
    I have two questions, please. First, what is the best discussion that you know of the legality or illegality of west bank settlements, as well as their moral standing? Second, should Israel retain its’ Jewish identity—-What would be a good discussion to read?
    THANK YOU,

    Hello Richard,

    I am reading some of your excellent Essays on France. Very insightful and interesting.

    I note that one of your categories on the blog is Eurabia, but I wonder whether you have actually read the book itself: Eurabia:The EuroArab axis by Bat Yeor?

    best wishes
    Jill

    Hi
    My name is Tomas I work for the Sderot Media Centre. A couple of months ago we had an Intern who has now returned to the UK, shes currently working on a summer camp and has sent us an enquiry, which I was wondering if you could help with. She is looking for Doctored photos of Israeli Troops, in the original the troops are helping a Palistinian in the doctored version the Soldier is brandishing his rifle in the palistinians face.

    • Richard Landes says:

      i remember one in particular of an israeli soldier during the operation defensive shield (Jenin 2001). it was treated at length in a documentary on jenin by Martin Himmel: Jenin: Massacring the Truth (http://www.aish.com/jw/mo/48942341.html) or Avi Davis, Jenin: The Battle for Truth. I think the photo appeared on the cover of a major magazine and it had been photo-shopped to make the soldier look menacing to the people he was protecting.

    Richard,

    We are losing the hasbara battle. This is definitive proof that the muslim honor-shame caliphate is quickly taking over the world! They even managed to trick the MSM into believing a non-muslim, indeed a MUSLIM who managed to act as though he hates muslims and supports israel did the Oslo massacre!

    Quick, write more articles! lobby more congressmen! israel’s future is in your hands!

    • wayne says:

      yet time and time again we find out that holocaust survivors fabricated their supposed retelling of their experiences.

      Zionists seem to have an genetic inability, or lack of morals, to see the error of their deeds.

      • Richard Landes says:

        this is a nice piece of malevolent projection: the people with a cultural imperative to self-criticize, are accused of genetic inability to do so, when if anything humans have a genetic tendency to avoid public revelations of guilt (honor-shame societies), and jews represent one (of hopefully many) form(s) of mobilizing cultural values to fight it. the tone and animus of the sentence suggests that wayne would have enormous difficulty admitting the error of his deeds, were, heaven forfend, he to do something wrong.

  12. Gene says:

    Came across your article “Liberal intellectuals are frightened of confronting Islam’s honour-shame culture” at Brigitte Gabriel’s site. Wonderful ! One issue cannot find anywhere discussed. Location of Israel. Agree that legally it is 100% correct. But morally ? We are trying to kill a beast (radical islam). If you can’t kill the beast (as 60 years of non-stop struggle shows), next you must starve it. Israel inadvertently feeds the beast (medical care, millions of dollars to appease them). Wouln’t it be simply smart to move to a carribean island for example. Compared to 60 years of war such transfer of 5 million jews is minor hassle. Israel will become a leading nation in peace, radical muslims will lose their support without Israel. The world will change for better. Maybe if so desired, jews will return to palestine once radical islam is defeated.
    Am I the only one thinking about this ? Please comment.

    • wayne says:

      Wouldn’t it even be more appropriate for the Zionist to admit to all their crimes against humanity, not only in the ME but abroad as well?

      Let us not forget the Irgun and other Zionist terrorist organizations that murdered many innocents in the advancement of the goal for a ‘greater Israel’. Does this include parts of Iran, Jordon, etc.?

  13. Manu says:

    France 2 has released a video of a 2 hours documentary on the Israel Palestine conflict.

    http://oeil-sur-la-planete.france2.fr/?page=emissions&id_rubrique=89

    If you listen to the comment, it’s “blame Israel” for pretty much everything. But the images and the interviewees contradict the comment.

    For example :
    1. The images of Ramallah’s prosperity. This could not have happened without the approval of Israel which is still the ruler of the West Bank, same for the police academy.
    They talk of constant humiliation but the people of Ramallah look much happier than the Palestiniens from Beyrouth.
    2. In Gaza, the journalist blames both sides in a strictly equivalent fashion for the rockets and the air strikes. But the Gaza man says “these rockets lead us nowhere”. He knows they are being fired without provocation.
    3. In Beyrouth, they list as a cause for the exile that the Israeli have deliberately expelled Palestiniens. But the old man at the UNRWA office says: “they promised us they would push the Jews into the sea and we are still waiting”. He did not get expelled, he left as he was advised to by the invading Arab armies.

    And it goes on and on with these contradictions…

    In passing, it is important to note that the artistic depiction of Mohammed is in fact, NOT prohibited in Islam.
    Those Islamists who endlessly proclaim that it is forbidden are simply dong so as a means toward political power. They re LIARS.There have been countless ISLAMIC artistic depictions of Mohammed in Islamic history.
    To view some medieval and post-medieval ISLAMIC paintings of Mohammed, click on link below (or rewrite it)

    Dear Richard,
    I came across this sentence: “Se trouvaient la toute la serie des ‘Carot Coupe-Tete’ de Mautice Landais ou l’on voyait des sans-culottes et des ci-devant en perruque.” (les Noisettes Sauvages par Robert Sabatier)
    Wondering if Maurice Landais is a relative. According to the story, a post WWI author.

    Re: Al Dura.

    Don’t know if you’re still blogging but thought you might be interested in an article in today’s Israel Hayom about Dr. Yehuda David
    צדק מאוחר – Late Justice

    So a French Court has found that he spoke the truth!

    Richard,

    Anthony Watts over at WattsUpWithThat.com had a blog posting on Justin Deering’s new book “End of the World Delusion 2012″ here: http://wattsupwiththat.com/2012/07/18/is-global-warming-just-another-end-of-the-world-delusion/

    I couldn’t resist putting a plug in for your book in the comments. I may wind up getting flamed lower down, but it will probably have been worth it.

    regards,

    W^3

    have you read Benjamin Kerstein’s book on Chomsky? Will you be reviewing it?

  21. Chris says:

    Professor,

    I’m a former student of yours from the early 1990s when you were teaching millenial European history. I just wanted to say how much I enjoy your blog and the point of view that you bring to our conversation. Cheers and keep writing Professor!

  22. wayne says:

    I am shocked at your term Pallywood, when most of western media is controlled by Zionists. In fact I recently watched an interview by CBC News whereby the interviewer stated that the 3 main networks do not report on any item not first vetted and approved by the IDF.

    You, as a professor, are very subjective and show many examples of confirmation bias on this topic, and certainly don’t approach as a historian should with nothing but impartiality.

  23. Anthony Allbright says:

    Professor Landes:

    I have just returned from Saudi Arabia, and I want to convey that something very big is happening in this region; something that no Western country can understand, or predict the ramifications of such a “coming together’ of minds, religion and directives for World domination. The worship of the moon God, and his daughters at the Kaaba, or the alter of baal are now unprecedented in number, and devotion.

    After having spent a year in this region I came to understand that the Western World will soon be taken by surprise, as the Muslim Brotherhood has grown to a huge militant, regional organization that is singular in mind, action and motivation. And, the Muslim agenda does not include any considerations of Western precepts or beliefs. In fact, the rumblings that are growing louder and louder are for the complete submission and/or annihilation of any persons, or nation that submits not to the prophet Muhammad, and their God Allah (the moon God).

    these are my observations over the past year (2012-2013)and I do believe something “Big” is on the precipice of exploding!

    Mr. Anthony Allbright MSEd. PsyD.

  24. Hi Richard,
    thanks for your work, i am currently writing a book which i intend to publish on kindle. i have 3 images in the book, one of which has your blogsite listed as the source. The website is here:

    Kind Regards,

    Hope you are well. I know you have much to track these days. Was wondering if you saw a fascinating bit on CNN on the evening of 7/22. Subject was how supporters of Israel and Hamas are “dehumanizing” each other via social media. The example posted consisted of two whateveryoucallthems: #HitlerWasRight and #HamasIsResponsible. Maybe an academic can figure out how “HamasIsResponsible” is “dehumanizing”? No need to explain why CNN thinks the two are on par.

    Hi Richard,
    Can you help expose this edited video? I noticed this video linked in a blaze article pointing out the editing in another video I sent to Aussie Dave and elderofziyonziyon via twitter. This video is linked, but never saw anything that exposes editing in video.

    This video is being circulated to show that Israel gives less than one minute after roof knocking.

    If you look, at 1:15 there is smoke coming from side window of knocked building. 1:17 there is obvious edit cut and no smoke.
