Children and Parents - I
I apologize for focusing so much on Juan Cole (this is my 2nd posting in as many days), especially as this makes him seem more important than he is. However, Sarah Livni, Tzipi's mother, just died. At the funeral Tzipi talked, among other things, about her relationship with her mother these past few yeas as she, Tzipi, moved across the political map. If you read my exchange with Cole, you'll appreciate why this is so significant. In a nutshell, Cole reprimanded Livni the daughter for not dealing with her parent's past, and Cole didn't have a clue what he was talking about.
