Watcher's Council Nominations, 3/04/04

Every week, the Watcher's Council members nominate two posts each, one from the Council members and one from outside for consideration by the whole Council. The complete list of this week's Council nominations can be found at the site of our fearless leader, the infamous Watcher of Weasels

Do take the time and check out the non-Council links..they are always rewarding.

Here's this week's lineup:

Why Don't Jews Like Christians Who Like Them? Joshuapundit - Hooo, did I get some e-mails on this one! Noted evangelical thinker Dr. James Q. Wilson asked the question in the title, wondering why so many Jews demonize evangelical Christians who admire them as a people and provide such rock solid support for Israel. I attempted to answer it, delving into a bit of history in the bargain. Here's a hint - it's about politics, not religion.

Ms. Bookworm writes on this theme, using a piece by Heather McDonald as a jump off point.

The Rape of Rape On American Campuses Cheat Seeking Missiles - Laer likewise mines the same rich territory, and makes the case for a new definition of `gray rape' as opposed to forcible rape or drug rape.

Exchange Student Woes The Colossus of Rhodey -Hube looks at the story of an American exchange student in Egypt who was literally starving to death and gives us a charming memoir of his own exchange student days in Costa Rica.
