Kim and Jay have done such a great job covering Israel the past week, that I have not posted anything on the subject. This quote the Anchoress posted was too good to resist, though.
The Israelis know that if the Iraqi or the Iranian army came across the Jordan River, I would personally grab a rifle, get in a ditch, and fight and die.”
– Former US President Bill Clinton, July 31, 2002Betsy Newmark says in answer to the question of whether Bill Clinton would make good on his pledge, “I guess it depends on what the meaning of “army” is. Perhaps, firing missiles doesn’t count.”
Update: Now Bill Clinton is calling on Muslim countries to send troops to Darfur. I wonder if he is planning on grabbing a rifle and joining them, as well.
Update II: Bruce Kesler has some ideas about ways those of us who would like to do something, can help those in Israel. And none of them involve picking up a rifle.
