Boy, I've opened up a big-assed can of worms by publicizing the peace protests that People of Faith CT are organizing. I'm frankly quite astounded at how many people are fervently supporting the bombing and incursion into Gaza, while offering nothing in the way of a peaceful solution.
Has six years of our nation's illegal occupation of Iraq so dulled our sense of morality that we can't see the overwhelming brutality of this invasion? The Bush administration's refusal to commit anything in the way of diplomacy to the conflict is both typical and tragic. George W. Bush gave Israel tacit permission to continue their assault on the civilians in Gaza by his inaction.
The four-day old baby on the news tonight who was wounded in the attack and needed to get emergency medical treatment in Egypt didn't look much like a terrorist to me.
