Challenged Hope

While my last post was an example of the positive impact that art can make, the three articles from Common Dreams that follow are just further examples of how f----- up our world is and that the possibility of peace needs to be reinvented in people's minds and hearts.

Welcome to 'Palestine' by Robert Fisk is very discouraging.

Blowback in Lebanon by Reese Erlich suggests a Hariri/Fatah-el Islam connection that went sour.

Gaza: Not just a Prison, a Laboratory by Naomi Klein describes Israel's post 9/11 industry and the product testing sites that are the West Bank and Gaza.

I have hope, I have to. But it sure is being challenged.
