Is that what one might call a vile imbalance?
The Israelis have ignored world pressure to stop the offensive in Gaza for over three weeks.
I have been wondering why Barack Obama has been silent on the issue.
Now BBC says that the Israeli withdrawal of troops is linked to the inauguration of the new president; that they want to begin their relationship with the Obama administration positively.
Wouldn't it be wonderful if Mr. Obama could effect world peace just by being a beacon of hope, by standing for right?
Of course no one could live up to the world's expectations of the man, but I hope he will not be crushed by the realities and disappointments that will follow when he proves himself humanly frail. I hope the American people and the world will allow him to be a decent human being, and not ask him to be Superman.
