At a news conference this morning, Rev. Smith outlined a radical strategy to bring about peace between Israel and Palestine. “I’m calling for the establishment of a UN watchdog group to monitor any acts of violence by either side in this conflict,” read Smith from a prepared statement. “Any time either Israel or the Palestinians strike at one another, we must bomb the shit out of both of them. For it is only by the use of further escalated retaliatory violence that we can hope to end to this vicous circle of violence.”
