An Italian priest who works regularly in Jerusalem and who refused to be interviewed by me because he feared it would jeapordize his position in the Vatican, had warned me that "the Middle East is full of lies". There was something about such a statement that was entirely divisive, holistically pretentious and foreboding. I never forgot it though.

I see Israel Palestine as a place that is full of secrets. All these secrets are well known, they are just easier to ignore if they remain a secret. Secrets like how many Palestinians are murdered each year, secrets about the post trauma that Israeli soldiers suffer, secrets about the vile racism of the Oslo Accords, and many many more.
