Mid-East Violence

   I must say that I am completely sickened to my stomach by the gruesome images I have been seeing on TV lately.

I'm glad that the media has finally decided to show the suffering of the palestinians at the hands of the israelis rather than only broadcasting the violence against the Israelis.

I can't imagine living in such a world when you dont ever know if a bomb will land in your classroom at any given moment. I always thought that these events were so far from home for me that I, like many other Americans, was blinded by the violence around the globe.

I am deeply concerned about the United States agenda to take this so called "war against terrorism" into other nations, next of which is Iraq. It is senseless that more innocent people have to die.

Are we completely powerless? What can we do to change this? 

I'm sorry I dont know much about politics of the Middle East, but coming from a humanitarian point of view, it's really time for both sides to stop the violence. If I am being too overly simplistic, please inform me of what information I may be unaware of.
