Some people asked me why I do not write more about Israeli politics and the ongoing operation in the Gaza Strip. Lack of time is my main excuse. Also, as long as Gilad Shalit is not set free there is not much to write, I am afraid. Both sides are talking about escalation, 'going one step further', a wholly new ball game, etc. etc. but all of this we already have seen and done before, and there really is nothing new under the sun. Except for some sort of workable political agreement to which all sides will stick, everything has been tried in the past. Since I have so much to do, so little time and even less original or brilliant ideas and solutions, I think that blogging about 'the situation' should not be my first priority right now.
