Good and Bad News

by ray goodlass

Yesterday Aljazeera TV news and the online ‘Occupied Palestine’ reported that Israel arrested 3 West Bank Hamas MPs. That’s the bad news, as it is an attack on Palestinian democracy that will inflame Palestinian public opinion But on the other hand there is potentially good news in that  UN Seccretary General Ban Ki-moon also said we can’t afford another year without tangible peace process results. But how can he back this up with action? Unfortunately I don’t see how he can, but hopefully his call will influence those who can.
