Some ironic reflections on Trump's peace plan, this week's Abraham Accords, and the Jewish New Year which begins tonight.

Here's an extract:
"Memories are short. But when did the world start forgetting? Or perhaps everything that was once strange and abnormal is now normal and unremarkable. Thanks to Covid-19, we’re all learning to live in a ‘new normal’. And now there is the new normal for Israel/Palestine too. And we call it ‘normalisation’.
In both cases things are not what they used to be, and may never go back to how they were."
