You may not like Al Jazeera. But at least in its English version it
performs with a modicum of honesty and even respect for its political
opponents. Here is a fifteen minute interview with my friend Efraim
Halevy, the former head of the Mossad, who favors Israeli negotiations
with Hamas but also thinks that the Palestinians have not (yet)
demonstrated that they can make out of their history or their present
predicaments a nation. There are consequences to that.
