No News

An Israeli incursion into Gaza kills more than 120 Palestinian Arabs, including children and other civilians. A Palestinian-Arab gunman in an Israeli seminary killed eight, aged 15–26. This madness is nothing new. I almost wonder why we bother reporting it as news.

When will we admit that the existence of an ethnic state is a recipe for tribal warfare and declare the Israel experiment failed? Only when Israel becomes a multi-ethnic state where non-Jews have equal access to citizenship will there be a hope of peace in that region.

    And plot of land becoming something other than “the Jewish State” will be a good sign that the world has made serious progress away from its long wait for the fulfillment of prophecy. No more “one people”, “god’s people”, “the chosen”, etc … just people.

    But, I’m not holding my breath for this to happen. These kind of ideas tend to take a great deal of blood before folks begin to lose interest.

    I’m not holding my breath either, but I have a glimmer of hope that we’ll wake up and apply our own ideas about diversity to how we think about the Middle East.
