Eine Kleine Nichtmusik

Witty and pertinent observations on matters of great significance OR Incoherent jottings on total irrelevancies OR Something else altogether OR All of the above

You know you're in trouble when....

When I saw the headline for this article I thought "Oh no, another article on the sufferings of the poor Israelis to 'balance' the news of more Palestinians murdered". But actually the article is much more than that. Read it and see.

I felt it said more than a hundred protest marches when people who had been tortured by Saddam Hussein came out against the Iraq invasion. Similarly, when someone whose mother-in-law was killed by one of Hamas's rockets speaks out against Operation Cast Lead it must carry a special significance.

I thought Kaye's article was incredibly well-tempered as an account from someone who has an involvement from the Isreali side. And very articulate too.

If only the same thoughtfulness were possible amongst those who have power to change/challenge the situation...
