More War, Part 2

The way it’s looking, this may become an ongoing series…

Israel has bombed Beirut’s airport and blocked Lebanon’s ports and Hezbollah has launched rockets from Lebanon into northern Israel.

Like Maha says, in a great post, “I don’t write about the Israeli-Palestinian conflict much for several reasons. One, I have no unique insight into the conflict; there are plenty of other people who do, and I defer to them. Two, what insight I do have tells me everybody involved is wrong a large part of the time.” I don’t think anyone involved is right all the time or wrong all the time, and often I find myself agreeing and/or disagreeing with both sides at the same time.

In any case, I direct you to Juan Cole, who does know what the hell he’s talking about.
