24.9.02

When I was thinking about my commentary for this week's Scarlet, one idea that occurred to me was to compare the way the US wants to lay the smackdown on Iraq for breaking UN resolutions, while we're happy to let Israel break them left and right. I shied away from it, as I try to stay out of the Israel-Palestine mess, and I didn't want to start off my Scarlet career with an anti-Israel sounding piece. But it seems that the PLO's negotiations affairs department has no such qualms, as they issued a report today making that very argument. It also seems that The Guardian has no qualms about simply restating the report's claims, rather than reporting on the fact that it was issued and the reaction to it.
