Here's one final word (for the week) on the situation in Israel. First, an article on Israeli Offensive A Turning Point For Progressive Jews.

It's an excellent description of what many of us have been feeling, in our reluctance to give up on the dream of Israel mixed with our inability to defend her current actions.

Now, here's a quote from the article that I found particularly disturbing: "There were a handful of signs on the march which read 'Sharon=Hitler,' that equated the Star of David with the Swastika, one that read 'Palestine Yes/Israel No.'"

Take another look at it - particularly the second of the three signs described. Again, I have to agree with the Martin Luther King, Jr., quote I posted a few days ago. Scratch hard enough at the surface of an anti-Zionist and you'll find an anti-Semite hiding beneath.
