The Art of Deception

Quite often I start to write an article about the travesty of injustices heaped on the Palestinians by Israel. Almost as often, I stop at a point where I mumble to myself that I’ve said it all before, and others have said it better.

A number of years ago when I started to write about the injustices suffered by the Palestinians, I was reacting to events as they happened.

Every time a settlement thug destroyed Palestinian olive trees or an Israeli judge refused to grant restraining rights to Palestinians, my upset with another unpunished Israeli crime would seethe out.

Online websites would publish what a few of my friends and enemies labelled vitriolic. That didn’t upset me. On the contrary, I felt that my criticism of inexcusable Israeli behaviour might just wake a reader or two up.
