I have not yet read John J. Miller and Mark Molesky’s Our Oldest Enemy. Now that I have read the review published in today’s New York Times Book Review, I know the book is a must-read. Miller and Molesky have reduced Bernard-Henri Levy to sputtering and frothing at the mouth: “racism . . . fascism . . . caricature . . . lunacy.” Levy’s review is a veritable invitation to stereotype all Frenchmen as incapable of constructing an argument. Must . . . resist . . . temptation.
