the Gaza conflict

Perhaps it is because the Palestinians and Jews have been killing one another for thousands of years now, that this most recent conflict seems so sorrowful. Are two peoples really so different?  It is a complex issue of racial and cultural conflict as well as political hubris culminating in the loss of innocent life.

There are days that my country frustrates me, but my neighborhood has never been hit with a mortar. A friend of mine recommended an article on the conflict that brought such sorrow to my heart. As I think about this issue I am filled with anger and sadness, but mostly with powerlessness. What can I do to affect this?  Is there value in writing my senator?  Are there causes that I can support?  Mostly, I think that a person like me (Middle American WASP) can thank God for my family, trust his goodness to triumph in a desperate situation, and pray for the innocent involved in such terror.
