thoughts on gaza...

Some say the definition of “crazy” is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results. By this definition, Israel and Palestine are certifiably nuts! It does seem clear that Israel has the economic and military superiority in the situation... and they have brazenly exposed their ability to make the population suffer for the acts of others.

But it's easy to sit at my desk in California and criticize this tit-for-tat behavior. I know I can't completely appreciate the situation from here. What does seem clear though is that violence continues to fail to bring resolution... when will we learn. My prayer for Palestine and Israel is one of solidarity and request for strength and wisdom for those, such as the Shministim, who have made and will make nonviolent statements. Statements that I pray will give both peoples a new way of looking at their situation.
