I have been on the fence with what is going on in Israel/Palestine because I believe that I don’t know enough about a very complicated situation. However, that has changed with this attack on WCK workers. It was just F’ing wrong and obviously so. I suspect that Israel lost a lot of support and deservedly so.
I grew up in the 40s and 50s with huge support for Jews and Israel. But, you know, anyone can lose respect and support if they behave badly enough. This was such a tragic mistake.

Where there is no escape. And I'm a long admirer of Chef Andres, he goes whenever and wherever people are in need of food. But I agree that this was inexcusable, these brave aid workers were there to help. People are literally starving, but after this who is going to be willing to step to help now??
