A David Littman Retrospective

Gates of Vienna 22 May 2012

As mentioned in last night’s news feed, the redoubtable Counterjihad activist David Littman died yesterday in Switzerland after a long battle with leukemia.

Mr. Littman has been eloquently eulogized by Jerry Gordon at The New English Review, and by Andy Bostom at his own website. I’m sure many more remembrances will be published in the next few days.

Vlad Tepes has compiled two video retrospectives to illustrate the enormous efforts that David Littman made at the United Nations in the thankless task of resisting the Islamization of that body.
