    The news in this article is sadly not news. War crimes have been committed - and continue unabated to this day - but that is not news in this surreal place called Israel. It's tantamount to reading the weather report. What is lacking here is imagination - a view of the future that is in stark contrast of the wretched past - yet everything falls on dogma and religious mythology - and such dark forces continue to pull Israel farther back in time - into the dark ages. There seems to be no understanding that the chain of human tragedies Israel has been responsible for will someday exact a price that would prove fatal to it's survival. You can't expect the moral universe to be as forgiving as the Palestinians have been so far. Somehow, someway, in some unknown time, this horror show has to end. Yet, decades later - the most creative people on earth - the Jews can't imagine a future without war and occupation. A very sad commentary.
