If Only this was Typical of the Left

Norman Geras on how the events in Gaza are reported on. My only quibble with him is that although he presents things as they are - Israel is wrongly singled out for criticism - if he has thoughts as to why this might be so, he doesn't tell us.

Well, actually, I have a second quibble. He seems to think that the Israeli government should be more strenuous in seeking peace; this is true in a vague sort of way, but not relevant because the lack of peace isn't the result of Israeli moves one way or the other. There is no peace because a majority of the Palestinians doesn't want peace at any price Israel can offer.
