Catch 67 and the way out: Micah Goodman

Please listen to Micah Goodman here It will take 1h 40m and 21 s of your life and, if you listen twice (as one should) – well you do the math. Besides the time involved it’s not easy – the sound is borderline and there is a lot of hand waving.

But this is one of the most civilised political presentations I have heard by a sane, erudite and profound man. In our time of the apocalyptic politics of fanaticism and banality it is a reminder of human courage, creativity and simple sanity. It is not ‘the last word’; there never is a last word.

But it is a very important contribution to the vital debate in the Middle East – and by extension, everywhere else.

Please let me know what you think.
