In the News in 2002

Seeing Clearly Through a Veil of Blood
by Nadia Hijab
November 15th, 2002
In 1993, with the Oslo Accords, we seemed so close to peace. Today there is horrible bloodshed. What happened? The fact is that no one is spelling peace with a "j".

Over the past six months, a similar movement has taken shape, this time aiming at an end to the Israeli occupation.
