Quote of the Day

Daphnie Cohen, Tel Aviv university student union spokeswoman - when asked if her support of the war had changed following the Qana bombing:

"I feel the same. I am proud of our army. I am proud of the state of Israel. I feel the same, because it is a war. "

She was interviewed on BBC Newshour, which I heard today on Chicago Public Radio. I couldn't figure out how to give you the whole interview here, but I was impressed with the conviction of the two Israeli university students who spoke eloquently about their support of their own country. They also spoke, as so many are doing verbally and in writing, mostly on the Internet, of how Hezbollah is attacking innocent civilians in Israel, yet world opinion often seems to forget that fact.
