Keep your eyes on Palestine (and Syria)

One of my favorite songs from the '70s was a Larry Norman tune called Peace, Pollution, Revolution.
The word is revolution, but no one's fired a shot
Each side has its battle plan, a million counter plots.
And the world is closely watching as we near the battle lines.
But if you're truly wise, you'll keep your eyes on Palestine.

A few Middle East headlines of the past day or two:

Violence escalates in Syria, while Syrian President Assad warns against Western intervention.
Meanwhile, events in Israel have heated up the following Israeli airstrikes on militants in Gaza.
And, in Yemen, a top counter-terrorism official has been assassinated by car bomb.

Don't get so caught up in the circuses on our own streets that you fail to see what's escalating elsewhere.
