Interesting reading this weekend:1. Richard Goldstone in The Washington Post: “We know a lot more today about what happened in the Gaza war of 2008-09 than we did when I chaired the fact-finding mission appointed by the U.N. Human Rights Council that produced what has come to be known as the Goldstone Report. If I had known then what I know now, the Goldstone Report would have been a different document.”
2. Quoting from the New York Times, “The project, the Umm el-Fahem Museum of Contemporary Art, is just one among the many developments in a trend that is quietly taking shape in Israel. While political negotiations for peace in the Middle East have all but stalled, Israelis are slowly discovering Palestinian art, helping build ties and encourage dialogue between the two peoples.”
These two articles published recently about the Umm el-Fahem Art Gallery and the future Umm el-Fahem Museum of Contemporary Art. The first was published in New York Times Magazine and the second in the Guardian.
