the lost world

"During this period of long sleepless nights, I sometimes wish I could believe in ghosts. I turn and toss in bed and imagine being able to send the ghosts of all the dead children, Israeli and Palestinian, to haunt Mr. Sharon and Mr. Arafat. I imagine that I am able to assemble these innocents around the beds of the two leaders; two men, both more than 70 years old, each a prisoner of the other, each at the mercy of the other. Each ready to act every day exactly as the enemy foresees, to throw more fuel on the flames, to spill yet more blood."
