In Gaza, 100 Eyes For An Eye

How long will America stand passively by as Israel conducts "security operations" inside its 21st century Ghetto?

With a wink and a nod, the Bush Administration has continuously demonstrated its unwavering support for Israel's disproportionate use of lethal force. (After all, it is profitable for our defense industry which has supplied the new "bunker buster" weapons strategically "deployed" in the latest attacks.) Each time Israel initiates a major campaign, the Administration awaits a signal that the "mission" has been accomplished before expressing a measure of feigned concern for the victims.

Southern Lebanon is still littered with unexploded cluster bombs, the lasting legacy of Israel's previous security operations.

Where the Bush Administration has been criminally negligent, the Obama Administration must actively engage in a multilateral campaign to restore peace in the region.
