Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

    Frederick Douglass' famous 4th of July speech, What to the Slave is the Fourth of July, which he delivered on July 5 1852. As I began reading it it electrified me. Not so much the speech itself, which is indisputably one of the great artifacts of American political oratory, but its piercing relevance to the origins of Israel's Original Sin, the Nakba. I resolved to write this post before Israel Independence Day, but for some reason, I didn't. So I'll take advantage of this year's July 4th to write it.
