Why does the Muslim world have to get violent before anyone stands up and takes notice? This is a repeated pattern. We ask nicely for whatever the issue of the day is to be resolved, and we get ignored. Then, we have to ratchet up the signals, and keep on escalating in our loudness, until the only sound that seems to get a hearing are the bombs.
All that was asked of Israel was to release prisoners that are wrongfully held: innocent women and children. They could not understand such a simple request? What was so difficult about that? And now a beautiful nation that has just barely recovered and rebuilt from the previous heinous crimes is back to rubble. A nation that destroys and has no regard for humanity is a pathetic thing to behold. After 2000 years of wandering and persecutions one after the other, one would expect better.
