The attacks on Israel are atrocious. I completely sympothize with the Palestinian plight. They are a desperate, poverty stricken people, and I do believe they see no downside in attacking Israel. I have tremendous empathy for anyone of any nation or faith whose child or parent is killed in this conflict. It is horrendous. However, I believe this poverty and desperation is being completely manipulated by terrorists – Hamas. Only madmen would place weapons in schools and hospitals.
I understand why Israel must defend her people. No civilized nation can ignore missiles being rained on its communities. I am deeply troubled by the impotence and stupidity of the Obama administration in handling this crisis, and believe that it in part bares responsibility. More on this to come.
