An angry Quaker is a beautiful thing. When that quiet rationality is overcome by moral outrage, something awesome is launched into the world.
Here's Helena Cobban writing about the United States Senate's enthusiastic endorsement of Israel's assault on the people of Gaza.
The behavior of the US Congress (now US representatives have since jumped on board) is the proper target for the protests of the very substantial portion of the US public that is appalled by the atrocities inflicted on Palestinians in Gaza. We provide and fund the weapons; we underwrite the ongoing theft of Palestinian land that Israel calls "settlements"; and our Congresscritters believe with some experiential evidence that they have to tow the line of the Israel Lobby to stay in office. If we don't like what is happening in Gaza, we have to change the behavior of our own rulers. That's the job of those of us here.
