Not A Good Day!

When was the last peaceful day in the Middle East? Who can remember? But even by their standards yesterday was particularly unpeaceful.

Palestinian protesters confronted Israel on four borders – Syria, Lebanon, Gaza and the West Bank. Not surprisingly, many were killed and wounded.

Thousands took to the streets in Turkey to protest new regulations on Internet activities.

In Egypt, Muslims and Coptic Christians clashed violently again.

Libyan rebels and government forces continued to kill each other.

Various political groups are not getting along in post-revolution Tunisia.

In Syria, Assad continued to slaughter peaceful protesters.

Protests continued in Algeria and Morrocco.

And, of course, you’ve got your usual bombings in Iraq and Afghanistan and, for the moment, quiet unease in Iran.
