    There is a sad coherence in both Russia and Israel, both fighting a seemingly hopeless battle of occupation: Russia in Chechnia and Israel in Palestine. Fact of the matter is that -although criminal, apartheid style and frustratingly injust- the Israeli occupation of the Westbank and Gaza looks to me less destructive and evil then the Chechnian occupation. It is correct that much attention is given to the Israeli road blocks, the economic destruction, the loose fingers on the Israeli army triggers, etc, etc, but it is definitely sad to read or hear nothing about the Chechnian occupation crimes. Who knows what is happening there? It would be of great interest to the Israeli and international public to read more about Chechnia from Israeli journalists who have a wealth of experience in analysing the Palestinian occupation (Eldar, Benevisti, Rubinstein, Segal, Hass, Benn). What is the same, what is different and what are the potential answers to the problem(s) in Chechnia? interesting questions and potentially interesting answers.
