Helen, you know as well as I do that the Palestinians and Israelis have been at each others throats for longer than I can remember. You knew Carter — he was as close as any president got to ending that clusterfuck. Then some asshole took Sadat out. You’ve been here longer than any of us, so I’d think that you’d have some bright ideas on how to get those savages to set down the guns and sing “kumbayah” if anyone does.
No, don’t give me that it’s not the journalist’s role to yada-yada-yada rap. Shit has hit the fan and it’s time to roll up our sleeves.
