    situation but it is generally conceded that the present situation is not sustainable.  All I can do as I view the current carnage is to think of Langston Hughe's poem:

    What happens to a dream deferred?

    Does it dry up
    like a raisin in the sun?
    Or fester like a sore--
    And then run?
    Does it stink like rotten meat?
    Or crust and sugar over--
    like a syrupy sweet?

    Maybe it just sags
    like a heavy load.

    Or does it explode?

    It seems very germane today

      entlord, I would argue that this is the germane line:

      Or does it explode?
      I have nothing against Israel as a nation, but what Netanyahu is doing right now is just wrong, and it does seem likely to end in that explosion.

      No good can come from Israel's current policy.
