To install public phones
Also for Palestinian prisoners.

Avoiding an embarrassment
During the Eurovision:
Prisoners starving themselves... • More...

How lucky
What should we vote for?
To get rid of Netanyahu,
Or to end the occupation?

Fortunately, there are
Parties and candidates
Standing firmly for both. • More...

There is a partner
The Government of Israel
Negotiated with Hamas

In Be’er Sheba
On the 33rd year
Of the occupation,
And grew up to be
A gifted musician
To be shot to death,
A soldier, in the 52nd year
Of the never-ending injustice,
Which... • More...

Self-evident facts
"The United States is
The state of all its citizens".
"Britain is the state
Of all its citizens".

Like Rotem Sela
In all these... • More...

The permanent status quo
The worst corruption
Of Netanyahu is
Drowning the hope for peace
In a pool of cynicism
And making the Occupation
Into a permanent Status Quo

But for this
No one will
Prosecute him... • More...

On the moon and on earth
A space probe

To have
The Israeli pride on the moon.

On the same day,
Also a bullet was launched
Into the chest of
Youssef Said Hussein al-Dayeh,
15 years old.
The Israeli shame on... • More...

That's what Occupation does
“You send your kids
To the army, the Territories,
And get them back as beasts.
That's what Occupation does.”

A soldier or a settler
Hamdi Taleb Na’asan

Was shot and killed
In his olive grove.

Who fired the bullet?
A soldier or a settler?

Either way,
Hamdi Taleb Na’asan
Was killed because of
The... • More...

With a knife
To shoot and kill
A Palestinian with a knife
Is OK. No questions asked.

Also with regard to
A Jewish Israeli -
A black one. • More...

At an armed enclave
In the middle of Hebron,
While the 200,000 Palestinians
Among whom they chose to live
Will have no vote in
Electing the... • More...

Let’s get out, already!
Occupation leads to resistance.
Resistance leads to oppression.
Oppression leads to terror and counter-terror.
Usually, the victims of terror
Are innocent people.
Keeping the Occupied Territories... • More...

Who passes the cash?
The Deputy Mayor
Of Haifa says

15 Million Dollars
In cash? • More...

It's not done
The decision of Airbnb
No longer to include
Hosts in settlements

Owing us an answer
What was
The urgent need
To send
A secret unit
To a public fiasco
And re-ignite
The Gaza border?

It isn't enough
To praise the fallen officer,
The decision makers
Owe us an answer. • More...

Last hope
Putin no more
In his pocket,

Trump fluttering
With one wing,

Bolsonaro reconsidering
The embassy move,

Bibi's last hope:
The Saudi Prince… • More...

Not only Rabin

At the square

And the incitement against
Those who care
For the other;
Against... • More...

Without peace
With the Palestinians • More...

Intolerable
“The situation
Is intolerable!”

Would certainly agree.
Their children died
From drinking
Contaminated water,
Because of the siege. • More...

Lethal embrace
The occupation
Kills us all!

Let’s get out of
The lethal embrace! • More...

When you rule by force
Over millions of people
With no... • More...

Pressure cooker

Total war against
The Palestinians.

The pressure cooker

In his footsteps.

Her hands and legs
Handcuffed to the chair. • More...
