"Will It Ever End?" A Newsweek Cover
I found this recent cover (January 12, 2009) fascinatingly strange. What does the "it" refer to? The Israeli/Palestinian conflict? Israel? Palestine? The world? And why is this placed in the muzzle smoke of an IDF soldier, firing tear gas? Is it suggesting that only through the gun that peace can be won?
The headline above, though, caught my eye in particular: "AARON DAVID MILLER: GET TOUGH WITH ISRAEL." This is most unexpected. Has the Gaza violence and the election of Obama opened the doors to new thoughts about engaging the parties?
