Dr. Abu Al-Aish, CBC headline

The story of Dr. Abu Al-Aish became the lead story on the CBC site. It probably helps that he has a Canadian connection: a job offer at the University of Toronto. Canadians love Canadian connections.

His daughters were apparently discussing their possible future in Canada when those Israeli shells brought the house down on them.

I can't fathom it.

But the good doctor has not lost hope. Not for himself and his remaining family members, and not for peace between Israelis and Palestinians. He remains a raging peacenik. Small mercies.
