Katherine Kersten's Korner

Today's kolumn is about the battle in Lebanon. Kersten talks with Stephen Silberfarb, director of the Jewish Community Relations Council. And that pretty much tells you all you need to know about the point of view in this kolumn. Not that there is anything wrong with that; it's her kolumn, she decides whom to interview.

Wingnuttia Level: N/A (Not going to touch this)

This is a blog about Minnesota politics, not about what is going on in the Middle East. Not only that, but just about everybody has an opinion on this conflict, and it is adding up to much more heat than light. I'm not an expert on this, and discussions quickly degrade to accusations of anti-Semitism or being a tool for Israel, depending on what you say.

I will say this. Hezbollah is a terrorist organization in that it targets civilians in Israel indiscriminately, and terrorist organizations need to be dismantled. I also fail to see how destroying all of the infrastructure in a democratic Lebanon is going to create a Middle East with more stability.

If I had any answers to this conflict, I would have shared them with the right people by now.
