Thank you, Jon Stewart!

It's been a depressing couple of weeks, hasn't it? Well, thank God for Jon Stewart. He made clear what should be obvious, that bombing and killing won't bring peace for Israelis or Palestinians. He calls the seige of Gaza "soul-crushing", and even mentions checkpoints and the perverse logic of trying to "get a war in" just before Obama's inauguration.

You can watch the clip here and send him a note thanking him. The man is bound to get tons of complaints. Let's tell him that he spoke for us.

Thanks to Jewish Voice for Peace (an organization that seems to have become a million times more fantastic over the last couple of months. Or maybe I just realized how great it's always been).

Yes, I was stunned watching it on Monday- happily stunned. He's the lone voice, liberal or conservative, speaking out against the atrocities and invasion- and it takes a satirical comedian to do it! What happened to the principles of unbiased journalism that we once held so dear? Where is Walter Conkrite when you need him?

Woah. That's kind of disgusting. The link playwrighter posted is for a pro-terrorist website.
