Dexter Van Zile of Algemeiner takes Gradye Parsons of the American Presbyterian Church to task over his one-sided approach to the Israel-Palestinian conflict.
Parsons’ letter is emblematic of the moral and intellectual stupidity that has afflicted mainline Protestant leaders for close to a decade. Even as he calls for Hamas and the PA to reconcile with one another so they can be a “peace partner” with Israel, Parsons can’t even bring himself to point out deadly rocket attacks that Hamas has been launching for years.
Kevin Baron of Foreign Policy ponders why the major press organizations and even the U.S. chief of staff are turning out for what has been touted as something unrelated to Mideast tensions.
The planned war game scenario will let the combined armed forces practice dealing with incoming missile threats “coming from all fronts,” said Israel Defense Forces Brig Gen Nitzan Nuriel, the lead planner. Both officers spoke on a Pentagon-arranged conference call with reporters. Nuriel said the event, for his forces, will “let them deal with more than one salvo…we need them to work at high tempo.” Take one guess as to which country near Israel is most capable or likely of ever launching a massive missile salvo. (It’s Iran, say Iran.)
