Season's Greetings

It is Christmas morning in the Holy Land and for the first time in very many months there is a glimmer of hope about the future.

The meeting this week between Olmert and Abbas in Jerusalem, the indications that some Palestinian prisoners will be freed within a week and that some security measures will be removed, make many of us here (be they Muslims, Christians, Jews and agnostics) feel the spirit of the season. It may even snow at the higher elevations in the Galilee, in Jerusalem and perhaps in Haifa.
