We understand that the statement came from a Mr. Michael Posner of the State Dept. It is of course another U.S. effort to be even- handed, balanced etc. etc. But it is just so hypocritical it infuriates. It is of course absolutely wrong to blame Israel for the Hamas- initiated hostilities in Gaza. But when the U.S. which has killed so many civilians in all kinds of military operations over so long a period of time- does this it is simply absurd. It too is a betrayal of a real friend and ally who happens to be facing the kind of assymentrical war against a terror- society that the U.S. in a sense is facing now in Afghanistan- Pakistan. Instead of understanding one in a situation roughly similar to their own the Americans here turn their back on their friends. Disgusting.
