A Peace of Jerusalem: Revision Notice

The document A Peace of Jerusalem was revised on this date.

The document is the result of a collaboration undertaken between October 27, 2009, and August 7, 2010, involving approximately 300 people from different countries and regions of the world (including Israel, the West Bank, Canada, the US, the UK, France, Lebanon, Iran, Kenya, Germany, Jordan, Australia, Saudi Arabia, the UAE, India, Russia, Pakistan, Italy and others) each of whom contributed their own ideas, beliefs and opinions to the project. 

On December 13, 2010, the print version of the document was published and subsequently distributed to the contributors who chose to provide their mailing information. A small correction to the preamble was made in the December print run and the on-line version was updated to reflect that change on January 2, 2011.


All comments welcome.

Exactly 55 Years, 10 Months

KimTeamAmericaFifty-five years and ten months. That’s precisely how long the Korean Armistice lasted. 

Today, Kim Jong-il, North Korea’s insanely fearless leader, declared that his country is abandoning the armistice agreement that terminated open hostilities across the Korean frontier on July 27, 1953. 

If you ask most people when the Korean War ended, they’ll probably tell you that it was some time in the 1950s. That, of course, would be wrong. The Korean War never actually ended; it was only suspended by the aforesaid armistice agreement — which Kim, in his questionable judgement, has now declared to be void. A de facto state of war now exists between North and South Korea. 

In less than a month (on June 25th) the conflict will officially turn 59 years old. 

What to do? Very little. The ball is now in China’s court.

Will they choose the DPRK over the UN, as they did in 1950? 

I don’t think so.

 Catch up on North Korea’s first and “second” nuclear tests.
Read about Kim Jong-il’s succession plan for his son.

it calls me on


it calls me mad

in swift passing

gives me pleasure

yet sad

more sad

than missing

the little things

that to others

bring happy tears

are the many

misspent years


while striving 

to be remembered


altogether too much

such is time

and time is such

a bitter — yet

in the living of it

sweet — pill

swallowed up whole

in guilt

and mad raving


that i cry

no not i
