Mark Steyn has nailed the flaw in the West’s philosophy toward the Israeli- Palestinian conflict.
Update: International Christian Embassy Jerusalem has posted an excellent summary of the current conflict (Broken link, active January 6, 2009) as well as analysis of what might be in store. ICEJ is also helping Israeli families in the areas under rocket fire, if anyone cares to show their support of Israel in a concrete way. Now, for a summary of the conflict from the beginning – i.e. 1948 when Israel became a state – Glenn Beck does a great job in his History of the Middle East in a Couple of Minutes.
