This Berkeley student (I wonder what they teach there these days!) wants to start with Israel and the Palestinians to showcase nonviolent coexistence, who actually coexist nonviolently most of the time (in the year following the Gaza conflict no Palestinian or Jewish citizens died). I wonder what Mr. Taylor can do for Kurds, Shiite Arabs, Yemenis, Egyptians, Algerians, Sudanese with respect to "nonviolent coexistence". I also wonder what he can do for gay rights and women's rights in these countries, in Saudia-Arabia (which recently bombed in Yemen), and Iran (which has thrown a filmmaker in jail whose release Spielberg, the Coen brothers, and Coppolla demand. Have I missed his voice?). I wonder why this seems so urgent to Mr. Tayler in light of the fact that Israelis and Palestinians will resume talks in 2 weeks time, and after every Israeli Prime Minister in the last 15 years has tried to get to a peace agreement including withdrawl to virtually the 67 lines?
