It is painful to follow the insanity of the current violence in the Middle East and our government's political sloth. Some articles are worth reading and their lively discussions that follow. Consider going to altmuslim
and its growing list of comments. You may also read through Salon

. There are plenty of readings about the conflict, and my listing of some of them here is simply an attempt to say something about an event that truly rips the heart. Also read Rabbi Lerner's article (originally of Tikkun) published in American Muslim
. If you have any other article worthy of recommendation, then please leave a link in your comment. Any weird stuff will be deleted, like Vi4gr8 or Rolex or wealthy Nigerian widows or pamphleteering. Peace!
