The latest on Johann Hari’s Website is a sad tale of a Palestinian schoolteacher who has Israeli soldiers occupying the upstairs part of his home.

“I will never lose my optimism,” Khalil said the last time I saw him. “There are people on both sides who want peace. The real battle is not between Israel and Palestine but between those who want to co-exist and those who dream of expelling or killing the other side.”

Hari’s piece “was written” on 04Apr04. He has travelled into the future to tell us how unlikely it is there that there will be peace between Israelis and Palestinians. Nostradamus watch out. As always, he’s worth reading, though.
