November was a very busy month for me so I haven’t had time to write extended commentaries. Meanwhile I am posting links and short comments on articles that interest me on Twitter. If you don’t use Twitter, you can follow along in the widget on the lower right hand side of this page. One article which I read this month which I highly urge everyone to read is this piece in the New Yorker by Lawrence Wright. It is well worth listening to the interview with him as well. Personally, I am a bit more optimistic since there is a possibility that Marwan Barghouti is about to be released. If that happens I will comment more extensively on the positive implications.
