Roger Cohen has a touching column today about a guy named David Khoury, who moved to the West Bank to open a microbrewery.

I asked Khoury what he would say to an Israeli general if he had the chance. “I would tell him that Israel is a reality and the Palestinian people are ready to live in peace,” he said. “We are not terrorists but we have the right to resist occupation. I would say that you are greedy. You have to give up the West Bank and go back to the 1967 borders, for the sake of Israeli women and children and Palestinian women and children. Enough is enough.”

You could load all sorts of polemics on top of that, but it would be pointless. The wisdom comes through clearly enough.
