This morning I sent a revised version of an opinion article to Gershom Gorenberg, the Viewpoint editor of the Jerusalem Report, after he had suggested two minor changes to the original that I had submitted. Hopefully the article will be published in the next issue of the magazine or in the one after that, because it has to do something with the Nobel prize-giving ceremony that is to take place on December 8th in Stockholm. In the last issue of the JerRep Mr Gorenberg wrote an article that deals with - and links - two subjects that I have a more than average interest in: France's war in Algeria ( 1954 - 1962 ) and the Palestinian-Israeli conflict. These two conflicts are often linked, but Gorenberg, quoting Robert Aron and Albert Memmi - two of my favorite French-Jewish intellectuals -, points out the differences between them very well.
