Wright Take on Gaza
Robert Wright of The Atlantic with very valuable and lengthy blog post tonight, trying to do a tick-tock (with some unbiased help) on "who started" or at least how the current Israeli-Gaza conflict developed. His starting point is archly pro-Israel Jeffrey Goldberg flatly claiming Hamas started it and he then sets out to show the events since November 8, with rockets flying, and lets you decide. Of course, on one level, it's absurd since this "started" decades ago and it's not exactly an even playing field, in any sense. Still: worth a look.
