Do people think alike?

On Saturday last I posted on Gaza. It was titled 'The desert monster'. Monday Uri Avnery [my favorite Israeli writer-activist] wrote in CounterPunch. He named his piece 'The Blood-Stained Monster Enters Gaza'. Curiously the second line in my blog entry too was -- blood stained.

Avnery ofcourse is an authority on Israel and I look upto him for his erudite views. To add, UA's write-ups often are a sharp blend of his experience as a soldier, politician, writer and peace-activist.

Here is a link to the maverick Avnery:
