Quote from:   Martha Gellhorn for The Atlantic 1961
The unique misfortune of the Palestinian refugees is that they are a weapon in what seems to be a permanent war...today, in the Middle East, you get a repeated sinking sensation about the Palestinian refugees: they are only a beginning, not an end. Their function is to hang around and be constantly useful as a goad. The ultimate aim is not such humane small potatoes as repatriating refugees.

Watches – Thalassa (only French people would know it);


We have Thalassa here, but it's part of 'Global Village' which includes stuff from other sources.

http://www.sbs.com.au/shows/globalvillage

It's a wonderful programme, I watch it once or twice a week. There's faaaar too much French content though for me to be a truly regular watcher, and I don't like their current 'schools' series particularly.
