Israel Palestine

It's a mess and I have to defer to someone who knows what he's talking about and who is Jewish. Philip Weiss, a journalist I know who speaks truth to lies and keeps his head on straight notes that the American press can't seem to criticize Israel in the headlines, but at least prints articles questioning the logic, morality, and good sense of using violence to fight violence here:
Some things seem clearer than others, but I am constantly nonplussed by my ex-Bush friends who see the deaths of so many innocents as just a neccessary part of some kind of process.
