From Gaza to Oxford

Gaza: no bread, no fuel, no electricity
Oxford: Shimon Peres honored as man of peace. In his inaugural speech, he blames the victims (don't they ever get tired of towing that line?)

Kudos to the Oxford students who protested Peres's speach in the Sheldonian. In the mid-eighties I was a member of the Oxford Palestine Society and of the Oxford Arab Committee and of the Labour Party Campaign for Palestine and one of the founders of the Oxford Palestine Support Group, and I dont think we would have organized it as well as the current students did. I salute them.
