The Ithaca Journal publishes an interesting, though somewhat flawed, first-person story of a Jewish law student's encounter with Palestinians on a recent trip to Israel, Risk, Revelation in Middle East. Charles Scheer, a third-year Cornell law student, went to Israel on his spring break and ended up with a Palestinian tour guide who showed him another side of the Israeli/Palestinian reality. It will be interesting to see what response his article gets in the letters column from both the right and left. Controversial articles in the Journal often inspire letters that are equal parts ignorance/apoplectic rage/bad writing.
