Yesterday morning, before throwing away last Friday's IHT, I went through the issue once more and read two articles. The first one, by David Brooks, I had simply missed. Much of what went through my mind when reading about the Newsweek-Koran-Quantanamo affair can be found in this piece. The other article I probably would not have read if - since the piece was published - Hanna Laslo had not won the Best Actress Award in Cannes: it is an interview with the Israeli director Amos Gitai about Free Zone, his latest movie. I only know his movie on the 1973 Israeli-Arab war, Kippur. When I was in France last year the Pompidou Museum had a retrospective of his work. Also during my last stay there his Promised Land received much publicity.
