1 Israeli life = 100 Palestinian lives

That seems to be the current ratio in the latest flare up in Israel/Palestine.
4 Israelis have been killed by primitive Hamas rockets. Nearly 400 Palestinians have been killed so far by the Israeli response. Only when the Palestinians give up trying to solve their problems through violence and instead embrace non-violent resistance will Israel be shamed into changing their treatment of the Palestinians. It worked for Gandhi against the British. It worked for Martin Luther King and the civil rights movement in America. We need to pray for a leader like that to rise up amongst the Palestinians.
