Peace at last for Tom Hurndall the British activist left in a persistent vegatative state after being shot in the head in Rafah. An Israeli soldier has been indicted on six charges over the incident.

Having seen members of the International Solidarity Movement at work in the West Bank I've got to say that I don't necessarily agree with their methods. Their campaigns of nonviolent direct action put idealistic and sometimes naive young activists recklessly in the line of fire.

Even so, Tom Hurndall died while standing up for what he believed in and in these apathetic times that deserves respect.
