Peace NOW!

I gather information from the net, the tv news channels, the press on the current Gaza conflict. And yet the more I know, the more helpless I feel. The more I feel that this conflict, while it unnerves me and saddens me and scares me, is simply beyond my hands, my control. I feel I can do little if anything to end the conflict.

Well, at least my country speaks up. The Star reports: "Malaysia issues ultimatum to UN Security Council".

Hopefully the Egyptian-French initiative will come through. Israel claims that it has a third and fourth stage planned, which it will enter if necessary. I do not even want to phantom that possibility. For a quick update, read this article at the Guardian (UK).

This has to end NOW.
