Concerned


At a press conference in Japan, Condi Rice, who had just had a meeting with Israeli Prime Minister Olmert, condemned Hamas rocket attacks on Israel but failed to mention the killing of a 6-month-old baby in Gaza by an Israeli air strike until a reporter asked about it. Her response: “We have to remember that the Hamas activities there are responsible for what has happened in Gaza”. She claimed, without offering any evidence, that “we are concerned about the innocent people and we are concerned about the humanitarian situation.” But, somehow, she failed to get around to condemning specifically the Israeli killing of a 6-month-old baby.
