Commenter SFG on demographic differences in American sentiments on Saudi Arabia: Pithy profundity. The correlation between net sentiments* on Saudi Arabia and net sentiments on Israel across the demographic groups presented here is a fairly robust .66. The gaps between groups is similar, albeit shifted substantially more positive across the board for Israel relative to... Read More
Via Steve Sailer, Israel's prime minister Netanyahu recently announced the country's intention to deport 40,000 "illegal infiltrators ... without their consent". Israel has a population of a little over 8 million. The US has a population of nearly 330 million. Adjusting for population size, that'd be the equivalent of president Trump announcing an "accelerated removal"... Read More
Via Pew (with a heads-up from Anatoly Karlin), the following table shows the percentage of each country's population that approves of Trump's US-Mexico border wall as a percentage of the percentage that disapproves it (not a typo!). Unsure/don't know responses are excluded. There isn't a single country where more say they approve than disapprove, but... Read More

When I'm in discussions that find their way to the issues surrounding Israel and her relationships with her neighbors generally, and the Palestinians in particular, I find I often bemuse those I'm talking to because they're unsure of whether I'm "pro-Israel" or "pro-Palestinian". In imitation of Half Sigma (and correspondingly in a nod to my... Read More
- I'm not aware of any reason to suspect Armando Galarraga is not a naturally gracious and understanding athlete, but what I do suspect is that on the long road of sports history, umpire Jim Joyce's blown call will accentuate Galarraga's profile, not diminish it. Twenty pitchers have thrown perfect games, and over the last... Read More
In September 2005, I predicted that the Israeli pullout from Gaza was a mistake. That the Israeli military is now contemplating an invasion into an area it forcibly removed its own citizenry from less than two years ago does make it appear so.The involuntary removal of the only productive (Jewish) segment of southern Palestine begged...
