The complete idiot’s guide to Mideast peace – part 240


‘ Gaza ceasefire ‘extended by a day’ after Cairo talks’



“Stand still, you ever-moving spheres of heaven,
That time may cease and midnight never come!
Fair Nature’s eye, rise, rise again and make
Perpetual day; or let this hour be but
A year, a month, a week, a natural day,
That Faustus may repent and save his soul!”

Somehow I think it will take more than just a day to rescue the situation from its present sorry state. Maybe all the time in the world won’t do it.

Then the question remains; what ever will? – ‘ for those of us with better things to do.’

……………………..O lente, lente, currite noctis equi!
