Israel: Always The Villain

There's talk of a ceasefire between Israel and Hamas, and spin that Hillary Clinton will somehow make peace. But how can any rational person trust anything Hamas says and does, when their goal is clear? Here are two items from many excellent editorials:

From Melanie Phillips: “So with Israel having faced existential attack from the Arab and Muslim world for the six decades of its existence, and having been under intensive rocket, missile and human bomb attack from them for more than a decade, the BBC Any Questions production team selected as the audience question to launch its discussion of the Gaza war whether Israel actually deserved to exist at all. Vile.”

From Richard Cohen: “Hamas sent rockets into Israel, not caring if they hit a chicken coop or a group of toddlers jumping in and out of a sprinkler. You want balance? Here’s balance. Hamas didn’t care if its own people died either.”
