I don’t want to read about Israel and Hamas. All it does is upset me ( maybe enrage is a better word). Almost everybody writing or commenting about this cluster fuck has already taken sides anyway – I know I have – and are now putting all their writing and commenting energy into making the other side wrong. This is much easier than trying to make their side right because nobody is really right here. There may be different degrees of wrongness but they are miniscule.
Meanwhile, Israel has killed over 575 Palestinians, over 100 of them children. Still, that isn’t the worst of it, it seems to me; how many mothers are huddled in the dark, worried shitless that their child will be next? how many fathers watch helplessly as their families are terrorised? how many children – not killed – are making vows of vengeance?
