Next week, during finals, President Bush is coming with 800-1000 of his best friends (read security personnel) to encourage dialogue between the powers that be to bring peace to this region. Will it be successful? Perhaps we should count all of the carbon emissions of all of the people that must fly half way around the world, then drive all over the country, then fly back, contributing to the warming in Israel and the severe lack of rain this winter. Don’t you think video conference would be just as effective?
I’ll keep everyone updated as the situation develops. He is staying at the King David hotel, kicking everyone out. I’m not sure if I’ll be able to get to my last final at school next week (we live next door).
