Light Blogging for a Good Purpose
Blogging will be light for the next few days. We're concentrating our efforts on preparing a publication about the events of February 1983, when the Kahan Commission finished its inquiry into the massacres at Sabra and Shatila, the government deliberated what to do with the findings and recommendations, and Israeli society veered deep into the danger zone of civil strife, culminating with the murder of Emil Grinzweig, a Peace Now demonstrator, in front of the Prime Minster's Office. With the passage of 30 years, we can open some of the documents which have been sealed since the events, and hope to do so by the end of next week.
