It has always been difficult to bring oneself to put into writing the feelings elicited by the actions of the State of Israel. Personal feelings aside, does nobody see an Israel ruling today in the style of the wicked Eygptian pharoahs that the Jews escaped thousands of years ago? Recorded history has not witnessed a moment of true peril between religions, in which a God may be compelled to intercede. We better all to whatever devine entity in which we find solace, that Allah doesn't have a few plagues stuffed up his turbin, because it is starting to look like the Palestinians are ready to part the proverbial Red Sea. It would be wise for the Bush Administration to establish unequivically that the best friend of the US in the Middle East is Iraq, period. Maybe this would pump some life into the languishing 'peace process.'
