I am impressed by Alon's comment, though I do not think that it stops Israel, or any other nation, or individual from acting immorally or for reasons of expediency. Gaza is a case in point. I'm glad that Goldstone is not entirely refuting his report, even as we know Hamas' methods for having thrown out Fatah, who were planning some kind of coup, it seems. Now the everyday person in the Middle East feels that he too, is entitled to his inalienable rights. And so rivers of blood are shed. Adamah comes from the word, blood. But the human being will continue to strive, from generation to generation.
