Open Thread on Nicholas Kristof's MLKJr Day Advice to Palestinians

>> Monday, January 18, 2010

If you are a Facebook fan or friend of Nicholas Kristof, and it happened to show up in your newsfeed (or, if you were set to "live feed" and you happened to be on at the right time of day), you saw this status update earlier:

"On Martin Luther King Day, I wish more Palestinians would absorb the lessons of King and Gandhi and use non-violent but confrontational approaches in challenging settlements, etc. Non-violence is not only morally superior to terrorism, it's also more effective in challenging a democracy."
The post has attracted lots of comments. I wonder how LGM readers will react to it.

Happy Martin Luther King Jr. Day!
