Quotes

...“When General Grant Expelled the Jews,” was cited as a "brilliant exploration of the worst official anti-Semitic incident in American history" and "why the separation of church and state remains a vital defense of our freedom."
The channel cited "sources in Washington" as saying that "the parties are to sign an agreement to extend negotiations beyond 29 April. The agreement will include the release of Palestinian prisoners in exchange for the release of Jewish American spy Jonathan Pollard.”"
When I put the facts of this crime to Dori Gold, a senior adviser to the Israeli prime minister, he said, "Unfortunately in every kind of warfare there are cases of civilians who are accidentally killed. But the case you cite was not terrorism. Terrorism means putting the cross-hairs of the sniper’s rifle on a civilian deliberately."
..." , I still haven't read this contemporary classic, which shows up on English and History reading lists alike. As the book jacket explains, "[It] is a ground-breaking meditation on war, memory, imagination, and the redemptive power of storytelling.” It's on my list now. , Another favorite among the teachers I polled, Steinbeck's rewriting of Cain and Abel in the American West brings together fascinating narrative and a meditation on the nature of good and evil. ​, Anything by O'Connor is worth reading, in my estimation, but in this collection, as Karen Swallow Prior puts it, "O’Connor jolts the complacent Christian into re-examination of not only what redemption means, but what it costs." , Maya Angelou’s debut memoir, first published in 1969, is a modern American classic. As Karen writes, "Both the ugliness of injustice and the beauty of the prose in this book will take your breath away.""
