Praise for Israel from Slate.com

Slate is not exactly a neocon operation. I’ve felt the need to write to the editor to fill him on on Middle East history, in fact, when Slate tends to blame Israel for everything. Then along comes this article, praising israel for its measures to spare Gaza civilians.

I’ve been responding to posts charging “genocide” and “war crimes” more often than I should, but some people are just conditioned to measure Israel by standards no other country even approaches–not the US, killing hundreds of thousands in Iraq, not NATO, killing thousands in Libya. Even so, seeing stories like this on Slate and a similar one in the New York Times, I’m beginning to wonder if the tide is turning…or perhaps the Messiah is on his way.
