David Hare: Hamas torture technique

"The victim is shown a wall on which a staircase is drawn, and at the top is a drawing of a bicycle. The victim is told to go and get the bicycle. He says he can't get the bicycle because it's a drawing. He is then told if he doesn't bring the bicycle downstairs he will be beaten."
(Eric Herschthal, A Parallax View)

[UK playwright David Hare describes a Hamas torture technique used on citizens of Gaza it considers to be collaborators. He does so in one of his monologues entitled simply 'Wall'.]

The only viable plan for long-term security in Israel is for it to gain acceptance from all it's neighbours

"Israel cannot afford a military defeat for fear of disappearing from the map, yet history has proven that every military victory has always left Israel in a weaker political position than before because of the emergence of radical groups. I do not underestimate the difficulty of the decisions the Israeli government must make every day, nor do I underestimate the importance of Israel's security. Nevertheless, I stand behind my conviction that the only truly viable plan for long–term security in Israel is to gain the acceptance of all of our neighbours."

(Daniel Barenboim)
