A message for Hillary Clinton

When I posted last night the quote from Sen. Hillary Clinton about American and Israeli "values," I did so because it was such an ironic claim (George Bush take note). But the AP article didn't carry any more extensive quote from Clinton, so that was all I could say. Democracy Now! did:
""We will support her efforts to send a message to Hamas, Hezbollah, to the Syrians, to the Iraniains, to all who seek death and domination instead of life and freedom that we will not permit this to happen and we will take whatever steps are necessary."
So, Sen. Clinton thinks that killing 215 people, all but 14 of them (93%) civilians, is the way to "send a message" from those who support "life." And, echoing the words of Israeli activist Michel Warschawski, here's my message to Hillary Clinton, and all those who take the same position:
Israel no longer knows any moral boundaries -- if it ever did. Those who continue to support Israel, who make excuses for it as it descends into corruption, have lost their moral compass.
I'd use "barbarism" in place of "corruption." And I'd also note that, those who not only support Israel but who do so actively, e.g. by sending billions of dollars of military aid to that regime, share their guilt.

And speaking of losing your moral compass, WIIIAI this morning brings us pictures of young Israeli girls writing messages on bombs about to be dropped on their counterparts in Lebanon.
