Three great speeches of 2015: David Cameron, Manuel Valls, Hilary Benn - Paul Berman - Tablet Magazine 28.12.15
Three European speeches delivered during 2015 on the topic of Islamist terror and democratic values put America’s politicians to shame. They discuss the political quandary with a precision we have not seen during the last couple of American administrations. They vibrate with emotions that we likewise have not seen. They display a stirring disdain for euphemism. And they invoke (in the case of two of the speeches) principles of a wholly admirable political left that Americans have absolutely not seen.
