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).
