After their dismal experience making Gaza independent, only to have it turn into a launching pad for rockets into Israel, the Israelis are not going to make the same mistake with the West Bank — the two-state solution is a pipedream of the West. Of course the liberals in the West who are advocating it aren’t themselves getting shelled by rockets.

I am a voracious reader and also enjoy writing. I often have a very different point of view than the popular one. I do see value in debate, and thought it might add to the public debate on controversial issues if I were to express my contrarian opinions. I also started keeping my poems recently (I've written little pieces my whole adult life but never kept any); and I've been a photographer now for over 25 years. So I will be adding an occasional poem and hopefully interesting photograph to the blog along the way, just to spice things up. View all posts by Henry Barnard
