Dagger in hand

A man of prodigious fortune, coming to add his opinion to some light discussion that was going on casually at his table, began precisely thus: "It can only be a liar or an ignoramus who will say otherwise than," and so on. Pursue that philosophical point, dagger in hand.

--Michel de Montaigne, Of the art of discussion.

Here's a translation (courtesy MEMRI) of a column from an "Egyptian Opposition Weekly" fulminating against the influence of evil women in American government.

"The American president Bill Clinton, with the most famous scandal regarding women, was in love with the childish Jewess Madeleine Albright, the secretary of state. He would make no decision without getting the approval of this woman, who became notorious for her short garments that often caused embarrassment when she met political dignitaries. She too, in the end, followed the same path, describing the Palestinian resistance as terror, and she spared no efforts in her support for Israel!"

Madeleine Albright in a miniskirt. So that's why they hate us. I'm starting to understand now.
