Who is to Blame for Grief on a Beach?  (16 June 2006)


"It was another of those pictures that goes instantly around the world.  A young Palestinian, wailing in wretched sorrow, grieving over her dead father, stepmother and five siblings who had been killed by an explosion on a Gaza beach.  Then came the blame.  PA President Mahmoud Abbas (he's the moderate) immediately called the killings an act of Israeli 'genocide' and, to dramatize the crime, legally adopted the bereaved girl.  The sensational coverage and sensational charges raise the obvious question: Why would Israel deliberately shell a peaceful family on a beach?..."

which giveth the sun for a light by day, and the ordinances of the moon and of the stars for a light by night,

'then the seed of Israel shall also cease from being a nation before me forever'"
(Jeremiah 31:35-36)

(Psalm 125:1-2)
