Leonard Cohen's Concert Sells Out
By Micah Halpern

Monday August 3, 2009

I've Been Thinking:

Leonard Cohen's concert in Israel on September 24th sold out in just a few hours.
47,000 tickets were sold between Saturday night and Sunday.

The theme of the concert is coexistence between Israelis and Palestinians.

The 47,000 Israelis who grabbed up the tickets are just part of a much larger society, a society that aspires to that very goal of coexistence.

Leonard Cohen was planning on holding a concert in Ramallah on the same theme. Palestinian outrage forced the concert organizers to cancel. According to the Palestinians, coexistence implies that Israelis have a claim, it implies that the Israeli narrative might be correct. That was unacceptable to the Palestinian masses and to Palestinian leaders.

One has to ask the question: Is it possible that one side does not want peace?

If the answer is yes, what is it that the Palestinians really do want?
