Dr. Hanan Ashrawi

Sorry I haven't had much substantive blogging recently, I've been pretty swamped at work (this is a busy time I guess). Anyhow, I went this morning to a talk on the Hill featuring Dr. Hanan Ashrawi. She is just great. She was on the Diane Rehm show yesterday, and here is the link to the Real Audio of the program (also David Siegal of the Israeli Embassy if you can stand it). I am listening to it right now so I don't have too much to say about it so far. Give it a listen yourself.

UPDATE: 4:08 pm

Ok, David Siegal just said, in reference to Iran's nuclear program, "A nuclear bomb in the Middle East is unacceptable." Yes, well, except for the HUNDREDS of nuclear weapons that Israel has.

Comments:
Maybe he meant dropping one, rather than having any number poised ready for use at any moment for whatever reason deemed 'acceptable' by the power with the finger on the button.

What I think is unacceptable in the Middle East is endless occupation premised on the need for unending preemption of yet-to-come "terrorism".

And what about this huge explosion in North Korea with the mushroom-shaped cloud that everyone is so diligently denying to be atomic? Is this acceptable?
 
i don't know if you listened to the program, but one of the callers does a great job of calling out siegal for his stated desire to work with the international community to put a stop to iranian nuclear development while israel remains defiant of the international community when it comes to its own nuclear program (as well as a few other things).
