David Grossman on the Tent Protests: 'Window to a Different Future'

Israeli novelist David Grossman participated last week in the large demonstration in Tel Aviv that was a high point in the ongoing economic protests, and wrote a powerful, poignant and much-discussed account of the emotions it generated. It appeared August 5 on the front page of the Yediot Ahronot Friday supplement (here is the Hebrew original). A blogger known as blogzahav has posted his own earnest English rendition. What’s most powerful is the tumbling flow of emotions - confusion, joy, regret, hope - at finding himself believing again in the possibility of social solidarity and a vision, however blurry, of a better future.
