The Palestinian tragedy mustn't be used to spark a Jewish one
When the Palestinians finally recognize the grand Jewish narrative and the grand Jewish catastrophe, we too can recognize their narrative and their catastrophe.
Not a day goes by when I don't think about their tragedy. How can I not? When I walk around the beautiful Jerusalem neighborhood I've lived in half my life, their houses gaze at me. When I stroll through Jaffa's alleyways, their absence strikes me. When I hike in the Judean Hills, the ruins of their villages won't let go of me. The vanishing fig trees, the wilting prickly pear cactuses, the debris.
