"...public opinion deserves to be respected as well as despised" G.W.F. Hegel, 'Philosophy of Right'

the fog of war? « Previous | |Next »
July 2, 2003

The newspaper headlines about the road map between Israel and Palestine are upbeat for a change. That makes it the second or third day running.
This is an interesting post on the US role in the Israeli/Palestinian road map vis-a-vis the US in Iraq. It is written from a perspective that is sympathetic to Israel.

I do think that we should question the assumption that Israel and Palestine are on the road to peace.

A more realistic scenario is that it is ongoing war---from my perspective a guerilla war being fought against an occupying force. There may a temporary ceasefire in military terms at the moment but the war of words and the different agendas conflicting agendas continues. The atmosphere continues to be one of mutual distrust and suspicion.

Behind the fog of war---creating the impressions of peace to persuade public opinion----we have the usual on the ground activity with respect to the settlements
