How would Lincoln handle the Middle East?

Our last post linked to a piece on Lincoln at American Thinker.  Yesterday another Lincoln-related article appeared at the same website, this one invoking his approach to the Confederacy in the context of the modern tension between Israel and Palestine.

    Thanks, this was probably one of the most refreshing article i had read in a long time.

  2. Excellent article
    I am wary of anybody using Lincoln for their own political purposes

    While it was a response to Israeli Leftists and other fools who support Palestinian “Liberation,” this article was also illustrative of why Lincoln is still controversial across the spectrum. Caesarian power in the service of liberty is a difficult concept to grapple with, but something an evenhanded presentation of Lincoln’s policies beckons us to do.
