Anne Zwicker Kerr (The Murder of American Values in Lebanon)
I’ve never simply linked someone else’s essay on this blog, but I’m doing that for Anne Zwicker Kerr’s essay on Lebanon. She is the widow of Malcolm Kerr, former president of the American University there who was assassinated by Islamic militants in 1984. (She’s also Steve Kerr’s mother) Instead of being bent on revenge, she makes an eloquent plea for building understanding between cultures and condemns current U.S. policy there as a departure from that approach.
