More on Israel
This is worth reading and it gets at why I don't think Sullivan was all the way right yesterday. Because ultimately it doesn't matter whether the Israelis have the moral high ground or not (not that there really is one in war -- there's purposeful attacks and justifiable ones, but moral?). In any case, avoiding the thorny philosophical problems of war, I'll simply agree that because of how the news work and the trippy balancing acts of the middle east, it's impossible for Israel with it's established power to do anything with an attack but ultimately help Hamas and its rhetoric. It's all awful.
