Dear Julian Schnabel,
Stop using the phrase “cycle of violence” as if it was some malevolent force (I picture a giant black cloud of gas) that brainwashes Palestinian kids into becoming suicide bombers or shooting theater directors. Until you properly identify the problem (Palestinian and Islamic hatred) you do no service to peace or truth. In fact, you seem like just another New York Jewish liberal who has no clue what he is writing about.
P.S. I have to admit, I loved The Diving Bell and the Butterfly.
