The tragedy deepens

By Edward Said

No one really knows whether the Al-Aqsa Intifada temporarily subsided
because Yasser Arafat expressed his public disapproval of it on 17
November or whether the lull was only a short-lived one that was
generated out of fatigue or a search for new positions. Despite the
enormous cost in lives and property to Palestinians, however, the
essential problems remain, and the Israelis continue their blind and
finally stupid assault on Palestinians with the strangulation, economic
blockade, and bombings of cities and towns continuing without respite.
