The murder of these children makes my blood boil.
This violence will not subside until Israel expels all Palestinians from its' borders, and even then, it will not be over.
I imagine that our President lives vicariously through comments like those stated by Alan Keyes and Lou Dobbs....wishing for one moment that his words didn't have to be weighed so carefully, didn't have such widespread repercussions. Just thinking about what he must face daily in the security briefings stays my hand when I'm tempted to turn accuser.
