I don’t have time to blog properly about the recent escalation in Gaza, but I’ve been posting extensively about it on my Facebook page. My feed is public. Please feel free to follow along for the best news and analysis I can find, and “friend” me if you like.

And then scroll down, if you want, to see pictures from my recent travels in Turkey with my new fiance.
