...Abraham Joshua Heschel said, in early 1944..." We have failed to fight for right, for justice, for goodness; as a result, we must fight against wrong, against injustice, against evil. We have failed to offer sacrifices on the altar of peace; now we must offer sacrifices on the altar of war."

The man had vision as well...how did he know he was addressing Sharon and Bush?

The actor/writer/director Rob Reiner pointed out that five powerful voices in America, at a time when this country was waking up to years of injustice committed against Afro-Americans, Native Americans and others around the world; Medgar Evers, Malcolm X, Martin Luther King, John Kennedy and Robert Kennedy...who were all saying the same thing...we are one people, we should behave as one people bound more by what unites us than what makes us different...were assassinated...in America by Americans.
