i printed a map out the other day that i downloaded from a map library site. it was a middle east area map made by the lebanese government. i noticed that israel was on the map but it was annotated as “palestine”. lebanon, by the way, is 95% arab according to the excellent online resource, the cia world factbook. that leads me to mention an item from the daily illini that i found via hey listen. it’s about a paid ad that ran in the daily illini from campustruth.org (click on ‘mid-east 101’). the ad is the sad truth, but the leftist campus majority felt they had to print an editorial disclaimer when they ran it. what about free-thinking people making up their own minds? it must be tough for liam to deal with this on a daily basis over there.
