When broken bodies lay about
I don't remember an election like this. I don't remember a president like this either, not in my lifetime. I've known a lot of presidents and some prime ministers. For awhile in my life I worked for president in the white house. I also worked for the Joint Chiefs of Staff at the Pentagon. And I was active in organizations which brought me close to several Israeli prime ministers in those years when it was a lot easier to maintain one's idealism and things were more black and white; the way George Bush likes it. But today nothing is so simple, nothing is either black or white, and Israel got off the socialst track and doesn't seem to be the haven it once was for Jews escaping from oppression in Europe. And the gap between rich and poor there today is as great and shameful as it is in the United States today. And the fundamentalists seem to control the playing field and innocent people are dying. Just like here....
