Caveat Emptor

The opinions expressed on this page are mine alone. Any similarities to the views of my employer are completely coincidental.

It's really not that difficult to find balanced views on what is going on in Gaza. I can only conclude that the British media, including the BBC, doesn't try very hard. Deutsche Welle does much better. Here is an interview they conducted with Amos Oz. I've admired Oz's writing for 30 odd years and I admire his tough minded views on the way forward. He, like others, believes that in the long run some sort of peace with justice is achievable in Palestine. He also believes that you can't ignore Hamas rockets and shouldn't condone everything the IDF does.

The only alternative to his vision I can see is what we have at the moment: letting the ideologues and crazies indulge their fantasies while demonizing anyone that dares to disagree with them. Oh, and allowing hundreds of innocent men, women and children to be slaughtered...
