If you are like me you wonder what to think as an American about the violence in Gaza.
Take a few minutes now to listen to Bill Moyer's commentary here: http://www.pbs.org/moyers/journal/blog/2009/01/bill_moyers_reflects_on_middle.html
Also read this exchange between Bill Moyers and Abraham Foxman of the Anti-Defamation League: http://www.pbs.org/moyers/journal/blog/2009/01/exchange_between_bill_moyers_a.html
We know that terrorists have assaulted innocent Israelis, and are hiding among civilians in Gaza.
And you also know that Israeli soldiers are counter-attacking them, but are killing innocent civilians in Gaza.
It is a complex issue with a simple response: war is not the answer.
Acts of terrorism are criminal acts which require judicial response. Reparation of victims should be the goal, not retribution against perpetraters, because retribution, especially in the form of military action, war, does not work.
What do you think?
