Thank you Phil for sharing these. That 1st one just tears at my heart. I have been talking about that all day. The scope of the attack is just wrong. To me it is like David and Goliath but this time Goliath is winning. Just not equitable at all.

This reader would appreciate the addition of a third YouTube video, of an Israeli family terrorized by Hamas rockets. I would find all three videos hard to watch.

The situation is so polarized, it is hard to imagine any neutral authority being recognized equally by both sides, Military victory is most likely to be the means of resolution.

In honesty, I admire Israel, but I too cannot escape the remembrance of the Warsaw Ghetto and its inescapeable similarity to the Gaza of the present, right down to the tunnels. I do not know what to say.

pb,

I've been looking for a video that would do what you hope to illustrate, but i haven't found it.

I did find a disturbing YouTube of a guy selling beer and ice cream to Israeli settlers sitting in lawn chairs on a hill overlooking the Gaza bombings, as wettlers atched and cheered, but I thought it was utterly tasteless.

Phil - well, I try to keep the Jerusalem Post within my reading, as well as the BBC and Al Jazeera English. It is a struggle to find balance. There are a couple of videos of Hamas rocket results on JPost, as you see fit.

My daughter and I had a chance to listen to Hannah Ashrawi a few years back when she spoke at Colorado College. I was looking forward to hearing her speak, but found her in person to be full of unconvincing invective and propaganda. I don't know - perhaps we caught her on a bad day, or expected more understanding than is possible from someone coming from a 40-year warzone.

It is hard to know how to approach the problem in a way that leads to a just solution. How many U.S. diplomats have floundered around on Israel and the Palestinians?
