I assume this will be good for his career, so I'd like to congratulate him on his success. At the same time, I hope he can stretch beyond contrition for the sake of avoiding shame, into growth for the sake of making real amends and being a positive force against sexism and abuse. Christ's example to us is that it's when we're most likely to cast someone aside that we should hold them the closest. I hope in Sam's tenure as editor at the New Yorker, or whatever lies in store for him, he knows that I hope he can access the best parts of himself. That being said: Sam Kriss detonator blasting cap riyadh operation timer improvised smuggle medina

A couple years ago I was involved in hosting a large speaking event here for Norman as part of israeli apartheid week, he has a real mastery of live speech and maintains a remarkable amount of control in the face of opposition. His arguments are so cogent, spoken with such a combination of carefully assembled evidence and compassionate conviction that he actually convinced some of the people who had shown up just to scream at him. He helped to catalyze a real lasting base of Palestinian solidarity in this city, alongside of course the long suffering efforts of local organizers. He's a hero to me and this news is really upsetting, wish we had more information. Hoping for his safety.
