    Once again, Mr. Modi didn’t campaign hard in Karnataka, he only addressed three rallies and went back to Gujarat. Your insistence that he did is misleading!

    “* * * because of his alleged role in the deadly 2002 riots in Gujarat, he’s not so popular in the US—when he was scheduled to speak at a UPenn event by videoconference, a group of students and alumni protested * * * ”

    Gosh. I can’t think of a better endorsement of his suitability for the job than that he was vilified by the usual academic trolls. I wonder if he could get the UN to denounce him . . . .

      Occasionally the trolls find an actual problem. This is one of them.

        I’m not one to get overexcited about alleged slaughters in consistently bad neighborhoods. I applauded Ariel Sharon’s tough treatment of the Palestinian camps Sabra and Shatila. No question that human rights are going to take a back seat to the establishment of order in most of those places. American interest is in order there. I don’t give a fig about “human rights” in them.
