Ibrahim's Mirror

My neighbor, Treppenwitz, has penned a penetrating, chillingly accurate, description of the nuances of disputes over land in Eretz Yisrael (and the hypocrisies that accompany them). Absolutely required reading.

Two added points:

1. Most of the local Arabs are really named Ibrahim. Their village is, in fact, called Sheikh Ibrahim.

2. If only these guys would read it. (But then, they are only concerned with human rights.)

Thanks for the mention, neighbor. It still strikes me as odd that in this little town we still haven't made an opportunity to get together.

It's a rectifiable problem.

Hello there Jeffrey, I hope everything is going well. I am a bit surprised to hear you still haven't met David!
