There’s an element of racism in this – the idea that Israelis value life more and are therefore more sensitive to individual deaths.

If that were true, Israel would show its concern for life and set an example by not killing so many Palestinians, especially not so many Palestinian children.

I’m feeling uplifted and disgusted.  Uplifted by all of the people who are commuting their hearts and time to doing good and creating change, and disgusted by all of those who don’t give a shit… or worse, SAY they give a shit and don’t do the work to create change… about the latest events in Gaza.
