Question of the day: Why is the Arab world the only notable group of people outraged by Israel's attacks on Gaza, which left 225 dead, many civilians? Personally I feel we all should be outraged. I get the argument that their going after terrorist that threaten their nation, but...that does not give them the right to have utter lack of regard for civilian life...and its not like this is the first time this has happened. I get the fact that there has been villains on both side's of the field...but lets face it...Palestinians have gotten BY FAR the worst end of the deal. I'm sick and tired of this act. The UN needs to step up, America needs to step up, people need to step up and hold Israel accountable. I admit that I'm not an expert on the current situation but when a country like Israel did what they did, and fully defends the result...it can't be ignored. I encourage everyone to look into the issue themselves and not just take my rant as fact. That's all.

i wholeheartedly agree.
made me sick to read the news this morning.

but, other than pray...i'm not sure what else i can do about it, you know? i often feel so small and helpless when looking at situations this big.

I hope my presentations last year in Derek's class really had a part in your thinking.

AHHHH!! I know it's really sad I was hanging out with my Jordanian neighbors when i came down to visit and they were telling me about it and said that some of there family lives there and they don't know if they are alive or dead. I didn't even know what to say when I heard that. It's a tragedy.

Love and miss ya Aaron!
