It isn't clear at all how Obama or any other American president can be thought of as the lesser of two evils when he publicly gives the go ahead for slaughter. No matter how reluctant American presidents seem to be in endorsing periodic Israeli killing sprees, Israel would not be able to act without American arms and money.

The carnage, the broken bodies, and the dead children can all be laid at America's door . The United States is the world's only super power and the perpetrator of this crime is America's friend. Perhaps there will be no more silly questions about why "they" hate us. It isn't because they don't want democracy or hate our way of life. They hate us because we keep killing their people. "They" don't see anything lesser about our evil.
