Per le anime belle, che non capiscono

Niente di originale, solo un servizio de "El Pais", dalla Cisgiordania. Uno dei tanti possibili, da tanto.

Lo trovate qua, e' in spagnolo ma non credo risulti troppo difficile intendere.

La prossima volta evitiamo di chiederci "perche'?" - facendo finta di non sapere, o di non capire ...

L'articolo e' sotto chiave su El Pais, ma sembra disponibile su Internet

Segnalo sull'argomento due bei saggi sulla New York Review of Books:

(1) Brian Urquhart, "Living in an Impasse" (21/9/2006), dove e' discusso il libro "It's Easier to Reach Heaven Than the End of the Street: A Jerusalem Memoir" di Emma Williams (London: Bloomsbury):

Williams's account of what the Israeli–Palestinian conflict means for ordinary people, how they react to it, and what they hope for may well be more useful in the long run than all the partisan rhetoric, the myths, the expressions of hatred, the blinding lust for revenge, and the easy recourse to extreme violence that have become so familiar.

(2) Amos Elon, "What Does Olmert Want" (22/6/2006):

Much of the West Bank remains a war zone. The Israeli military presence is considerable, with many round, armored pillboxes, or bulletproof towers, overlooking the main Palestinian villages; the towers have slots for observation or shooting, with tall antennas and large Israeli flags hanging on high masts. "Hardened" SUVs are parked outside, ready for instant intervention. Inland from the big wall itself, I saw several new lower walls, built by the army, that now run parallel to local roads and can be used to block easy escape routes for potential terrorist cars [...] Almost everywhere there are completely separate road networks: one network for Israelis only, and another for Palestinians, with tunnels and overpasses enabling Israeli commuters to reach Jerusalem or Tel Aviv without meeting—or often seeing —a single Palestinian. The road network reserved for Israelis is brand new. The settler roads are smooth, broad, and well lit at night. The Palestinian roads are often old and full of potholes, and there are checkpoints every twenty or thirty kilometers. At peak times Palestinian cars, often including ambulances, can wait for hours at a checkpoint. The newest checkpoints are ingeniously designed so that there is no direct contact between the Palestinians and the Israelis who examine the Palestinians' papers through slots in steel doors, using scanners linked to "wanted" lists.
