Gaza or bust

We're beginning our journey back to Gaza tonight-but first of course we have to fly in to Cairo; from there I will make a brief detour to Doha where I will be attending the *gasp* launch of Aljazeera International on November 15 (yes, finally!).

More as we go.

Haaretz is reporting that Areab league have lifted the Financial Blockade of Palestine.

Thank you for the Darwish. I only know Qabbani's poetry but am reading Darwish Memory for Forgetfulness.

Children Bearing Rocks is appropriate

well be swept away-
never mind the slow pace of history-
by children bearing rocks.

Wish you a safe and pleasant trip home, and please post all details of Al-Jazeera International launch after your return from Doha.
They made us wait for it really long!

Looking at some of the posts on the Darwish piece, I wonder if it is time to turn on Comment Moderation.

Such a pity when people use a public medium for gratuitous insults.

Dear Leila,
All the best for you and the baby during your trip back to Gaza.
I am really sorry for what has happened there. I wish we could do something significant...

Dear Laila

All the best for your journey back, and thank you for your blog entries on Gaza + all the nice ones from Norway. I'll be tuned in to the Al-Jazeera launch tomorrow :o)

There was a very nice interview with you in a Norwegian newspaper after you left. I'll scan and send it to you.

And of course we are all angry and sad about Gaza. I very much agree with you that all of humanity is affected by this in one way or another....we cannot simply turn the blind eye and say that it doesn't concern us. I look forward to reading your blog from Gaza when you get there!
