Long-range forecast

The establishment is now preparing to vacate Schloss Grumpy and relocate to Dear Old Blighty. This will entail light to non-existent posting over the next month or so, I fear.

This may turn out to be the month in which Christian Aid criticizes Hamas, Rowan Williams acknowledges that the security barrier really does keep terrorists out as per specification, the World Council of Churches launches its Ecumenical Accompaniment Programme in Darfur, and Ken Livingstone gets round to saying 'sorry'. If so, I'll try and find time for a sentence or two. But business as usual is on the back burner for the time being.

If you fear withdrawal symptoms, dear reader, look on the bright side: you'll have more time to get to grips with David Hirsh's paper on Anti-Zionism and anti-Semitism. And once you've finished that, you might want to start on Matthias Küntzel's Jihad and Jew-Hatred: Islamism, Nazism and the Roots of 9/11, which has just picked up a prize at the London Book Festival.

PS You can read the first chapter of Küntzel's book here.

Good luck with your move. I'm surprised: you all seemed well settled in Germany. I'll be interested to read your comparisons of the two societies, should you choose to comment on them.

Oh well - Russians have a saying on the lines of "two good fires are better than moving once".

Anyway, good luck indeed and may your move come through easy.
