"People are realizing that the Middle East is not a big mysterious region where everyone is the same. Countries and people are different from one place to another. Persia is a very different place than the 'Arab world,' and the Arab world doesn't mean anything either, because life is very different between let's say Tunisia and Saudi Arabia. People need to talk about themselves and their lives. The comic expression is dynamic and the best medium for this."

Why is the GOP crusading to stop resettlement of Syrian refugees in the U.S. when France itself, the site of recent terrorist attacks, has pledged to accept an additional 30,000 Syrian refugees?

Is Daesh actually Islamic? If mainstream followers of the faith are any proxy, then the answer is a resounding no. But unfortunately, many see the hesitation to cast blame on Islam as a matter of political correctness. To me, it ought to be part of our strategy.

In the somber days since ISIS terrorists killed 130 people in coordinated attacks on Paris, elected leaders from around the world have been searching for solutions. But far too many American politicians have fallen back, instead, on that old standby in times of crisis: Stirring up fear and finding someone, anyone, to scapegoat, no matter how unconnected the scapegoated person is with the problem at hand.

LONDON -- I recently traveled to Paris from London. It takes two and a half hours by train. We are neighbors, our histories and populations intertwined.

So, like other Londoners, and citizens of free societies everywhere, she was horrified by the recent atrocities there. I suppose, she said, it could have happened here.
