Great Quote: "weather channel"

In Sunday July 20, 2008 New York Times magazine section, there is an interview with Israeli ambassador Dan Gillerman. In a free-floating set of questions, one response in particular was poignant. In a question on the Bush administration's progress in Mideast peace he said: "It's nearly as if we live in a world where if Christians kill Muslims, it's a crusade. If Jews kill Muslims, it's a massacre. And when Muslims kill Muslims, it's the Weather Channel. Nobody cares."
Ouch! I would add from listening to friends who have spent time in Palestine, that is is even worse. When Palestinian Christians are persecuted by Muslims and Jews, nobody even has their TV on.
