Hoosier Musings on the Road to Emmaus

Thursday, January 15, 2009

Lord, have mercy

Of all the news coming out of the middle east at the moment, the most heartbreaking is this:
At least 300 children are among the more than 1,000 Palestinians who have died since Israel began to bombard the Gaza Strip on December 27.

Julian of Norwich noted that "Our high God, the sovereign wisdom of all, arrayed himself in this low place and made himself entirely ready in our poor flesh in order to do the service and the office of motherhood himself in all things." I cannot imagine anything but a mother's heart breaking, as God's beloved children slaughter children in the name of protecting children. Hamas is wrong. Israel is wrong. How can anyone call this horror in any way justifiable?

Tasneem: thank you for your comment. I am sure that both sides can share tales of horrors. That's the tragedy, and the lesson: violence begets violence, as horror tries to justify horror.

My prayers this day are with all those who have suffered, and continue to suffer, in this conflict.
