The good, the bad, and the hopeful

Further to my post on the twentieth anniversary of the massacre at Hebron's Ibrahimi Mosque, here is an excellent piece for al-Jazeera on the massacre and its aftermath. If Goldstein was a crazed terrorist who acted alone, it was a remarkable coincidence that on the very morning when he decided to carry out his mass murder the IDF would turn off their metal detector and discontinue searches of worshippers entering the mosque.

I hadn't realised the extent to which the massacre was used as an excuse to grab further Palestinian land and property for the exclusive use of "settler" terrorists such as Goldstein. If there is one abiding lesson to be learned from his massacre, it would seem to be that terrorism works. (But I suppose the establishment of Israel in the first place shows that.)

Hard though it is to find positive thoughts and feel-good stories about such a blood-bath, I did like the story illustrated in one of al-Jazeera's pictures.

In 2010, a member of Hebron's historic Palestinian Jewish community met with the Palestinian mayor of Hebron. Haim Bajayo had left the city decades earlier and ceded his family property to the Palestinian community in 1977. Bajayo asked Mayor Khalid Al-Useili if he could be buried in the Muslim cemetery because Hebron was his home city and he refused to be buried in the Jewish cemetery "because it's under the settlers' control". His request was accepted by Al-Useili "not as a guest but as an authentic Hebron citizen".

Here is another report on the same story.

It's never a bad thing to be reminded that despite all the IDF thugs and settler terrorists there are decent human beings who happen to be Israeli Jews. If Israeli is to survive in any form after it is forced - as it most certainly will be - to abide by its international obligations and pretend to be a real part of the developed world, it will be because of people like Haim Bajayo, not people like Baruch Goldstein or Benjamin Netanyahu.
