There was a very thoughtful commentary this am on the Imus show by a guy named Ted Friedman, I think, from the NYTIMES. He said Israel was really stuck, they can't stay and they can't get out. That what is really needed is a third party, whether it's the US or the UN, to come in and act as a peacekeeper and keep the two parties away from each other. And, he said, what could be worse than the US being perceived as a midwife to the birth of a Palestinian state. That what the suicide bombers are doing is so counterproductive, that Israel won't budge as long as the attacks continue. He said look at Gandhi, who forced the British to leave a whole subcontinent by nonviolence. He went on, the 22 heads of state who have gathered for the Arab summit, not one of them is democratically elected, and that what they say in public re Hussein, stay out of Iraq, is not what they say in private, which to paraphrase "If it were to be done, tis well that it were done quickly." Makes my blood run cold. Arm the Kurds, give them air support, put the crosshairs on Saddam, is what they mean. This guy also said that the Palestinian terrorists would absolutely use a nuke if they had one, and I for one don't think the day is too far off. What happened in Israel today is appalling. What keeps them from annihilating the camps? And Hamas took public credit for it! Just unbelievable.
