I heard on the news that less than a third of Americans believe Israel has overreacted. There are 10 times as many Lebanese deaths as Israeli deaths; no international airports in Israel have been destroyed; and I’m among that less than a third who wonder what has happened to the general understanding in the international community of proportional response. And I’m also frustrated with Christians who maintain such a blind loyalty to Israel that they disregard the New Testament command to love our enemies and then also disregard the Old Testament eye for an eye restraint on retribution.
