ANDREW SULLIVAN ASKS

How do you make peace with people who behave like this?

Well, I'd say not calling them savages would be a start, as would not using a picture to stoke bigotry against them.

But what do I know?

UPDATE: Thinking about it some more, I think it's important to remember that this is a picture after Palestinians were killed by Israelis. It takes a certain type of selective observation to take a picture like this and use it to demonize Palestinians. Why are the savages the people who pull the body parts out of the car rather than those who fired the missile to kill them?

UPDATE 2: Sullivan has apologized for and removed the post. Now if only LGF would apologize...
