Sunday Reads - Losing Omar & Pussy James Bond?


The last two installments of the Reads Series were not published; here's resuming the series.

  • Losing Omar: The pain of a parent whose child was killed in Gaza. (BBC
  • Why does James Bond never go to the really dangerous places? (ForeignPolicy)
  • Five Statistics problems that will change the way you see the world. (Atlantic)
Hat tip for the last article: Mohan Ramiah, my colleague and friend from Chennai.

Israel and the Palestinian territories are once again engaged in a major battle; Hamas fires rockets, Israel pounds Gaza with air strikes and so the story goes around. Israel's Iron Dome missile shield has been a major success and India is planning to buy this to ward off similar threats from Pakistan and its proxies like LeT.

Appreciate the infographic on Israel's Iron Dome.
Also, a post having articles about Israel-Palestinian conflict would be really helpful.
I'm googling it anyways but your sources would be great.
