This seems like a good time to speak truth to power

"If you succumb to the temptation of using violence in the struggle...your chief legacy to the future will be an endless reign of meaningless chaos."
~Martin Luther King, Jr.*

Robert Scheer, Why do so few speak up for Gaza?

B and I are with you, on this one [ no surprises, there].
Great use of Goya, BTW.

[On a lighter note- I'm impassioned about Jubilation 25. Seriously. It sings to me.]

When Netanyahu is elected next month (and I have no doubt he will be), I expect all hope of a solution will end at least while he's in power.

And I expect the bombing to continue right up until the day Obama takes over.

It's all so stupid and disgusting, it makes me despair. I'm sure you're right, Mary. The foreseeable future has not a glimmer of hope for any solution. But surely this massacre has to stop.

How is B, Chaya? I hope all your menfolk are well.
