Wow, am I ever relieved to read this report. It seems that it was much ado about nothing. The Israelis did not do anything wrong in Gaza. They followed the letter of the law. What a load is lifted! It was weighing on me heavily! What a relief!

I never thought that Rahm Emanuel would take a principled position on the illegal occupation of the West Bank by the Israelis given his background, but if this is all on the level then a clear shift in US policy towards Israel is playing out. I will take this news with a grain of salt until I see more action, but it is a start nonetheless.
