the newest israeli-palestinian

the grauniad reports that daniel barenboim will become probably the first person in the world to hold israeli and palestinian citizenship at the same time after being granted palestinian status in recognition of his work promoting cultural exchange between young people in israeli and arab worlds. the full story is here.

"In a pointed reference to US president George Bush's recent comments on the Middle-East conflict in which he talked of Israel's "occupation" of the West Bank, Barenboim added: "Now even not very intelligent people are saying that the occupation has to be stopped.""
