60 years Since the UN's Partition Decision

A while ago I reminisced about Sadat's visit to Israel, 30 years ago. I can't do the same on the 60th anniversary of the UN's decision of November 29th 1947 to partition Mandatory Palestine between Jews and Palestinians.

However, Amos Oz can, and does very well, in his magnificent book A Tale of Love and Darkness. If you haven't read it yet, do. And if this means choosing between reading blogs and reading his book, read the book. (That, by the way, is a general statement. There are many books out there which are more important than blogs...).

(For our German readers, it's Eine Geschichte von Liebe und Finsternis).
