In direct contravention of my wife's explicit instructions, herewith I inaugurate my first blog. Long may it prosper.

Not that anyone out there needs reminding, but 125 people were murdered in Israel in the month of March by Arab Palestinian terrorists. The toll is mostly Jewish Israelis, but includes some Jewish tourists, a few Arab Israelis, and a couple of foreign observers. Israel has about 6 million citizens. The United States has about 270 million. A comparable ratio of terror killings in the U.S. would yield over 5500 people, about twice the toll of September 11. And that's only one month of the Oslo war (albeit the bloodiest yet). And it doesn't include any injured, which are a multiple of the dead. Anyone still advocating restraint out there?
