All of us bear some responsibility for the war and bloodshed, first in Israel and now in Gaza. The prewar situation in Gaza and the West Bank should have told all of us that it wasn’t sustainable. But most of us and the world didn’t pay attention to it, including the Biden administration that was anxious to turn its attention to China and Asia. What Hamas did finds no justification – politically or morally – but even now and when the worst of the fighting stops each of us should take some personal inventory and ask ourselves what did we do to address this unsustainable situation.
