We can cry, "Peace, Peace," but there will be none.

Roger Simon's post on the shootings at the Jewish Federation of Greater Seattle is somber and full of weltschmertz. Maybe that's just how I feel. I had hopes yesterday that Israel was really going to follow through to eliminate Hezbollah, but they seem to think that this is sufficient to make their point. Or maybe it's just too hard to keep attacking criminals who use civilians as shields.

It appears that the West, even Israel, lacks the determination to do what really must be done to solve this problem. More and more, I'm thinking of the prophecies in the Bible.
