70 years vs 2000 years: Testimonies and Memories

My first boss in Geneva and excellent friend Jean Freymond, probably wondering about my lack of reaction to the latest events around Israel’s 70th, sent me the text below written by a very knowledgeable and fascinating author, Barnett Rubin whose life and involvement are a living proof of dedication to conflict resolution.
