TODAY, WE ARE ALL ISRAELI
What is different now. First, CNN does not have a monopoly on the news. While they certainly went back to the old playbook and rushed the ever available Chrisitane Amanpour to Lebanon and were duped into showing a propaganda piece for Hezballah, FOX was in Israel showing the suffering of the Israeli's. Second, The European Union has mostly been silent. Third, the President of the United States did not immeidately send Condi Rice over there to quell the violence, but instead stood up at a world meeting of the G8 and told the world that he supported Israel's right to defend itself and was in no hurry to stop the Israeli attacks on the terrorists.
The world, specifically, the United States recognizes that the Israeli's are fighting the same enemies in Iraq, Afghanistan and other parts of the world. We have recognized that this is part of the Global War on Terror. The American populace is behind Israel on this one (except, of course, the Democrats in Congress).
Today we are all Isreali's
