    Well said. We all know that Israel is in a precarious and dangerous spot. But one does not defeat evil by embracing evil - this is the fallacy at work here. It is truly horrifying that so many of us do not seem to understand this, or simply not to care. There are criminals on both sides of the conflict, and the triumph of those on one side only improves the situation for those on the other. If we want our children or our grandchildren to know peace we must find a way to back away from the dangerous precipice the extremists on both sides push us towards. The first step is to respect and value those who act from conscience to protect innocents on all sides - not to criminalise them, "make an example" and rush headfirst towards the armageddon our so-called christian zionist friends envision for us.

Why we don't know how to pick our leaders

Our craving for ideology means that we are partial to ideological leaders. But we need leaders who will make smart decisions that are aligned with the public interest.
