When Will They Ever Learn....

In the continuing disaster in which Israeli forces are pounding Gaza, the despairing question is the same one raised by the old 1960s protest song, “Where have all the flowers gone?” Will they ever learn the things that make for peace, asked Jesus weeping over the city of Jerusalem 2000 years ago? We still ask the same question.

In today’s North Jersey Herald News Hani Awadallah, professor of Chemistry at Montclair State University asks the same question, in an opinion piece entitled, “Will Israel Choose Peace?” I commend that article to your reading.
