    The Palestinians have three things the Native Americans didn't--- resistance to diseases,  international friends, and the emergence of postcolonial human rights morality.

    That's why, as poor a lot as the Palestinians have, they still have a glimmering hope of an independent future.  Obama's speech is a reminder to Israel that that door won't close.

    Conservatives need to realize that their Silent Moral Majority is neither silent, nor moral, nor a majority.
