A Parody of Parity

The Boston Herald reports that Barack Obama is trying out some Israeli-Palestinian even-handeness:

“Now, just as the terror of rocket fire aimed at innocent Israelis is intolerable, so, too, is a future without hope for the Palestinians,” Obama said.

So: on one hand there’s Palestinian terrorism and on the other there’s a “future without hope” caused by Palestinian terrorism. Frankly, President Obama’s obligatory “so, too” is PC folly. As long as leaders continue to strain for non-existent symmetry in approaching Israel’s fight against terrorists, we’ll know that “peace” efforts remain unserious, and that Israel will be forced to maintain the status-quo through stop-and-start warfare.
