Marc Ellis comments:

Cardinal Sean O'Malley spoke of his recent Easter retreat in Israel where he and a number of priests visited Galilee, Jerusalem and beyond. The Cardinal intoned the Hebrew words tikkun olam for the healing needed after the bombings. The Cardinal did not mention that his retreat was also held in Palestine. No Arabic words of healing were spoken. That would strike the wrong "political" note. Why Palestine and Arabic is political, therefore divisive, and Israel and Hebrew is apolitical, therefore healing, has important ramifications for the cultural and political word we live in. It is reflective of way Jews and Muslims are perceived in America and the imbalance we see on the ground in Israel/Palestine.
