Lästips om Gazakonflikten
Ska du läsa en artikel idag om konflikten mellan Hamas och Israel skall du läsa ”How Israel brought Gaza to the brink of humanitarian catastrophe” av historikern Avi Shlaim. Shlaim tillhör den grupp av judiska historiker som kallas New Historians. Shlaim skriver bla:

What they aspire to, above all, is a piece of land to call their own on which to live in freedom and dignity.
