It's been only a few days since the festival ended but so much has happened since then it feels like another lifetime away.
Yesterday we watched on TV the funeral of Mohammad Abu Khdair, all of 16 years old, abducted and killed in retaliation - allegedly - for the death of the 3 Israeli teenagers. It was the first Friday of Ramadan, after noon prayers, crowds followed the body wrapped in a Palestinian flag, fighting broke out, tear gas, burning of street signs, the anger and frustration boiling over, a sense of helplessness, just watching.
In Haaretz, an Israeli newspaper, Gideon Levy wrote an op-ed
about the death of peace.
