The hypocrazy of war vs the crazy power of compassion

“What’s happening in Gaza is not a natural disaster, an earthquake or flood, for which it would be our duty and right to extend a helping hand to those affected, to send rescue squads, as we so love to do. Of all the rotten luck, all the disasters now occurring in Gaza are manmade – by us. Aid cannot be offered with bloodstained hands. Compassion cannot sprout from brutality.” (The time of the righteous, by Gideon Levy, Haaretz 09/01/09)

How much compassion is there left in this world? How much compassion is there left in you? Can you remember the last moment you’ve acted with compassion? Can you recall what happened?
