Interesting reading on Israel and the Palestinians

Robert Wright has a post trying to establish a (recent) timeline of hostile encounters between Israeli forces and inhabitants of the Gaza strip, which I found only mildly successful. But the piece is followed by a long comment thread that seemed very interesting to me, with the exchanges between BRS_CA and dodanimal that starts right away in the comment particularly illuminating. BRS_CA makes a very good case for Israel, but unfortunately dodanimal does not bring the same level of argument to bear in favor of the Palestinians: s/he seems emotional and less concerned with communicating facts. Still, it’s an intriguing discussion, and BRS_CA educated me on many aspects I had not previously known. It’s too bad he did not have a better interlocutor.
