MORAL EQUIVALENCY WATCH: From the same MSNBC news alert:
May 22 — A bomb exploded Wednesday evening in the Tel Aviv suburb of Rishon Letzion, police said. Israel TV reported two people were killed, apparently including the bomber, and other media reports spoke of dozens of casualties. A spokesman for the Israeli Magen David Adom ambulance service said many were injured.

Later in that same article:
Two dozen Palestinian taxis waited Wednesday morning at the main army checkpoint along the north-south road, which was blocked. One passenger, Fatma Abu Maghaseb, 55, said she was trying to visit her daughter, who had given birth the day before. “Can anyone in the world imagine that my daughter and I live in the same town, and only one kilometer separates us, and I cannot get there?” said Abu Maghaseb, dressed in a traditional black robe.

Of course, our hearts and prayers go out to the thousands of inconvenienced Palestinians.
