Illiberal Liberals

Consider the following juxtaposition
"There are only two groups that are beating the drums for war in the Middle East - the Israeli Defense Ministry and its amen corner in the United States."

-- Pat Buchanan (1990)

"Just as the Israelis and their American amen corner helped drag the US into the Iraq war, so they also have inflamed Iraqi sentiment against the US by spectacular uses of state terror against Palestinians."

-- Juan Cole (2004)

for concise and dispositive proof of the illiberal nature of so much modern "liberalism".
