That old time religion

Shorter Norman Podhoretz: Some people say that calling yourself God's chosen people could potentially lead to racism, but this is not a problem when you are, in fact, God's chosen people. And no, you can't have East Jerusalem.

(By the way, how do others feel about the "shorter so-and-so" rhetorical strategy? I see it quite a bit and realize it could be annoying and potentially obscuring of complex arguments. But honestly, you're not missing much substance in the Podhoretz piece. This is the sort of person who tunes in to MEMRI tv every day to freak out over whatever anti-Semitic garbage some imam somewhere is spouting, but is himself a complete tool.)
