14. I do not speak for these people who are in the streets.

My hope would be that they grieve for the victims of Hamas in Israel, the people who are
trapped in Gaza and the West Bank and all powerless people who suffer everywhere.

Until we can move beyond our tribalism and recognize our common humanity and
capacity to suffer equally, we are doomed to repeat this fearsome drama of death
and destruction into infinity.

Unfortunately continuing the bombing is also a victory for Hamas. They wanted this reaction. Hieronymus Phact Nov 2023 #32
Exactly. Mr.Bill Nov 2023 #35
