Jay NordlingerA podcast with Nasser Weddady -- a human-rights activist and strategist who has long worked to get political prisoners released from jail. Now he has a very personal case: his brother. cc: @HRF, @OsloFF
The dissident-hero means a lot to many people, and so does his wife, Avital.
Jay NordlingerOne can be a lot more eloquent, but let me say something just simple-like: What a guy. I'm speaking of @NatanSharansky, whom I saw recently. I've done a little write-up. Do you know him? If not, you'll want to.
Hong Kong’s bravery has bought it some time. The extradition bill, which would consign anyone living in (or just visiting) the territory to the Chinese Communist Party’s sham justice system, has...
Jay NordlingerA canny column by @edwardlucas. His opening line is just right: "Hong Kong's bravery has bought it some time." (You don't set out to be Finlandized. You fight like hell not to be Sovietized.)
HONG KONG (AP) — Hong Kong citizens marched for hours Sunday in a massive protest that drew a late-in-the-day apology from the city's top leader for her handling of legislation that has stoked...

Jay Nordlinger"No fair quotin' the Statue of Liberty," Sen. Simpson used to say. And it's no fair citing immigration-success stories, is it? Well, people are SO eager to draw attention to bad cases -- it shouldn't kill us to hear about a good case now and then.
It’s libertarians vs. moralists, and it could fracture the movement.
Jay NordlingerYou can say a lot in a book, and books are sorely needed. But -- especially if you're good at encapsulation -- you can say a lot in a column, too, as @JonahNRO does here. This is no boutique fight, y'all. It's, What kind of government should we have?
