For good or ill, daily life is particularly jam-packed today, and I’m not sure when I’ll have time to write about the events. I’ll come back and do so as soon as I can.
For what it’s worth, I wrote about Israel attacking Gaza in the wake of terrorism back in April, and my opinions remain the same: The constant slaughter and collective punishment of Gazans has — clearly — not achieved security for Israelis. The policy of hitting Gaza and Hamas as hard as humanly possible again and again has failed, and failed utterly. Endlessly repeating a policy that has proved an abject failure while expecting different results is nothing more or less than insanity.
