Gaza Didn't Have to Happen

There are many tragedies involved in the current Israeli bombardment of Gaza. Layers and layers. The tragic loss of innocent life, land and sovereignty. The loss of legitimacy and stability. The loss of hope. This revealing analysis today in the international Christian Science Monitor makes it clear that one of the biggest tragedies of all is that this did not have to happen.

It didn't have to happen. So, WTF is up with that? Well, The Author posted about this very issue way back in March of 08. That's right. Pop Impulse saw this coming, and correctly laid the blame directly at the feet of the Bush administration, Fatah and Israel. I guess the CIA must have missed it. Uh-huh.

Naomi Klein and others are calling for a worldwide boycott of Israel, arguing for the same tactic that finally ended Apartheid in South Africa. A great idea, worthy of support.
