Sad Story

Sad to see, even sadder to know that this type of thing is happening all the time in the West Bank.   There remains alot to be said about both sides of the issue on here, particularly since I haven”t posted anything specifically relating to it yet, but check the video out below.  No matter your politics,  it’s sad to see.  Ignoring, for the moment, the causal factor here and opinions on it – whether or not Israeli settlers should be in the West Bank at all – the fact that things like this happen in daily life in the West Bank might help to add a little insight to an understanding of just how tense life there is.  Juan Cole has already determined his take on everything in the Middle East.  I haven’t yet.  Check out the link below, but please don’t assume that the tone of his post is reflective of my own.
