    The Democrat Party, best-selling author David Limbaugh claims, has sold itself to left-wing extremists, losing its mind and soul. Limbaugh charts how the Democrat Party, unable to come to grips with the Clinton scandals, unable to accept the defeat of Al Gore in 2000, and unable to accept its current minority status, has embraced a politics of ideological hate and nihilism.

    "Good facts, bad telling"
    Overall

    Overall, the facts seem to be good and straight, however being clearly pro-Republican book and not trying to offer any objective insight won't earn this book large crowd of fans.

    Story

    In From Beirut to Jerusalem, Thomas L. Friedman, a columnist for The New York Times and a two-time Pulitzer Prize-winner, has drawn on his decade in the Middle East to produce the most trenchant, vivid, and thought-provoking book yet on the region.

    Annie says: "They choose the past over the future"
    "Sadly, a one sided book"
    Overall

    Friedman describes to parts of his journalistic life in the Middle East: Several years he lived in Beirut, during Israel's 1982 invasion into Lebanon; and several years he lived in Jerusalem with his family.

    In the first part of the book (Beirut), Friedman goes on to rave about strong Lebanese people, living their lives despite Israeli invasion and violence of the militants. He talks about people being used to automatic gun shots on their streets and how brave it is of them.

    Then, Friedman writes about Israel. For the whole second part of the book, he goes on to criticize Israel - people, politicians, victimhood (as in - Jews should finally stop thinking so much about Holocaust, it was long time ago, come on!), et cetera. Sadly, Friedman did not have many positive words for Israel - criticizing it all the way through.

    Unfortunately, being a NYT journalist does not exempt you from one sided, unprofessional reporting.
