"A great success"

Israel kills twelve, including 8 children. "A great success", according to Ariel Sharon.

Naturally, this isn't terrorism. Oh no, if the bomb comes from a warplane, it can't be terrorism, can it?

War crimes, then?

Hamas will strike back, as night follows day, and more innocents will die.

None of this is surprising, of course. Inevitable after the Bush proposal.

There are voices of sanity, but they seem to be few. "The use of violence as a means of solving problems is demeaning to us as human beings. Attacking civilians of any kind anywhere is totally unacceptable."

It's clear to be that both sides are in the wrong. If I'm a little more harsh towards Israel, it's because I am part Jewish myself. If the Jews havn't learned the importance of humanity, what hope is there?
