Bloomberg and Brown seem to support Israel

by Dan Grubbs

It's good to hear a little sanity coming from other than in Israel about the Gaza fighting. A Bloomberg news piece quotes Michael Bloomberg, New York City mayor, during his visit to the southern Israeli city of Ashkelon. “New Yorkers know what terrorism is all about,” Bloomberg said. “If we were threatened in New York, we would do everything in our power to protect our citizens.”

Now, if only the Western media would come to their senses.

It is also good to hear that at least Great Britain understands that peace in Gaza cannot happen if rocket attacks continue and arms keep flowing into the area. Prime Minister Gordon Brown did call for a cease fire, but contingent on guarantees to Israel that arms shipments to Gaza will be stopped and rocket attacks on Israeli towns halted.

Now, if only the rest of the world could see past the rhetoric.
