"From the gut (and the heart)"
Editorials by Paul Olivier
Acceptable?
The memorable impression of the past days was the disastrous view of Jenin refugee camp. As far as visual TV image it looks similar to the WTC ground zero scene. In metaphysical terms this might have some meaning. An other image was Arafat protesting his isolation with the words: "is this acceptable?" Is the man able to perceive reality? Isn't that an expression of self-centeredness as you ever have heard? Doesn't he understand the harm he does to the Palestinian people by not calling off the the human bomb attacks on civilians? And is there not a single Palestinian who understand what is happening and want to change the situation before they are wiped out totally? If they really miss the sense and can't understand, they might just go the way of the dinosaurs!
