The Nation writer expresses "Solidarity" with muj in Fallujah 
The word "solidarity" is his word, not mine. From a transcript of a Michael Medved interview with Nation writer Daniel Lazare:

Medved,Now, do you think that – do you feel some sympathy for the so-called insurgents in Fallujah?

Daniel Lazare: Oh, absolutely yes, total sympathy, total solidarity.

Michael Medved: You do?

David Horowitz: So who's the sophist here?

Daniel Lazare: Of course, absolutely. The insurgents in Fallujah are repelling a foreign invasion. They have every right to do it. Now, I’m not going to support every last action by every last fighter there, obviously, but certainly they have a right to repel a foreign invasion of their country.

And more:

Daniel Lazare [Responding to Horowitz's assertion that the Mujahedeen in Fallujah are actually terrorists oppressing the Iraqi people.] Are you aware, David, that the other Nazis routinely referred to members of the French Underground as terrorists during World War II?

Other Nazis, Daniel?

Michael Medved: Daniel Lazare, would you like to see the elections scheduled for January 30 in Iraq fail?

Daniel Lazare: I'm totally opposed to what the U.S. is doing in Iraq. Therefore, I would no more support U.S. elections than I would support German elections in France during World War II.

Michael Medved: So you're sticking with this comparison of the United States to Nazi Germany?

David Horowitz: He is, because he believes it in his soul.

Daniel Lazare: I believe it. I believe it entirely.
