This Week's Message

Release them!
We all feel very sorry for
Naama Issachar,
Israeli girl on her way home,
Jailed in Russia
On a flimsy pretext
Of 9 grams of cannabis.

But who even heard of
Hiba al Labadi
Jordanian girl jailed in... • More...

Gevalt, the Arab vote...
Gevalt, Gideon Saar...
Gevalt, Iran, Iran, Iran!
But most alarming of all:
Me, the Prime Minister,
Going to prison?
Gevaaaaaaaalt! • More...

After two days of
Shabak interrogation
The suspect Samer Arabid
Was rushed to an
Intensive care ward.

Not much chance for
A serious investigation:
The Israeli media
Already judged him,
Calling... • More...

After intensive discussion,
Most representatives of
Israel's Arab citizens
Opted to recommend
Benny Ganz as
The next Prime Minister.

Benny Ganz still has
To prove himself worthy
Of this confidence. • More...

Worse than all that
Worse than Netanyahu's
Blunt racist campaign,
And his promise of annexations
Putting a definite end
To the last spark of hope of
Peace with the Palestinians;
And worse than the criminal charges... • More...

Eureka! Cameras!
Help! Help!
The Arabs will steal
The repeat elections!

How to wake up
The Likud voters?
Eureka! Cameras!

With or without
The "Cameras Law"
The smell of
Arab hatred
Already fills
The Air. • More...

Not enough
As usual, towards elections
There is an increase
In military tensions,
Netanyahu sharply attacks
The media,
And speaks of annexation.

But Bibi, this time
All this may just
Not be enough. • More...

The day after
In these elections
Neither the parties
Nor the media
Speak of the Palestinians,
Solutions not offered.

Meanwhile on the ground:
Attacks, bombs,
Launching of missiles.

The unsolved problem
Will... • More...

A year already
This week we mark
A year since the death of
Uri Avnery, man of peace.

In a country which, bluntly
And stupidly, blocks
Members of Congress
And gets drawn into
A new escalation
With the... • More...

"They come to destroy,
We come to build!"
So declared Netanyahu,
Exactly one week after
He sent soldiers and bulldozers
To destroy the homes of
70 Palestinian families. • More...

Not naked
Declare in writing
That I am
Not naked,
The Emperor
Ordered his
Forty friends. • More...

No partner
"Ben Gurion proclaimed the state,
But also Netanyahu had
An important achievement:
He terminated the negotiations
With the Palestinians",
The "Be'Sheva" rightist weekly wrote.

Thus, they at least... • More...

Destruction gimmick
How to let right wingers
Know that it is worthwhile
To vote Likud?

Very simple:
Send hundreds of soldiers
With bulldozers
To destroy an entire
Palestinian neighborhood
In East Jerusalem. • More...

Just remove the army
Mr. Netanyahu, there is
No need to "uproot"
Any settlement.
Just to remove the army.

Settlers wanting to.stay on
Under full Palestinian rule -

Those who don't want it
Can be good... • More...

Who is illegal here?
The settlers demand
The destruction of
28,000 "illegal"
Palestinian homes.

International Law says clearly:
It is the settlements
Which are illegal.
Not the Palestinian homes. • More...

Sixty fishing boats
Sixty fishing boats
Confiscated at sea

Sixty fishermen
Getting home
Without fish -
And without a boat.

Now, Netanyahu promises
To return the boats.
But why confiscate them
In the first place? • More...

Not for sale
The Palestinians are
Not willing
To remain
Under occupation
For money,
However much.

Sorry Mr Trump,
Not everything
Is for sale. • More...

For sale
Netanyahu and Trump
Are best friends.
Just one thing
Separates them:
Sale of the Haifa Port
To the Chinese.
Perhaps we could sell
Trump Heights instead. • More...

There is no stopping in the middle
To the attention of
Ambassador Friedman
And those who cheer him:

If you start nibbling
From the West Bank
There is no stopping in the middle
You end up
Devouring the whole territory
And giving... • More...

The choice is ours
A knife attack
In East Jerusalem
Is a reminder of
Israel's rule over the Palestinians,
Fifty-two years old
This week.

If we don’t end the occupation
Another generation will
Live with fear and... • More...

Another chance
Repeat elections?
So, for the time being
No cutting down
Of the Supreme Court.
No special immunity
For Prime Ministers.
No annexations.
And there is
Another chance
To get rid
Of Netanyahu.. • More...

Behind the curtains
For the Eurovision
We present an image
Of an open, pluralist and
Tolerant society.

Perhaps the world
Won't pay attention to
Our Nationality Law
Which fits Apartheid
And the paralyzing of the... • More...

The additional day
Already on Saturday night
It was possible to
Achieve a cease-fire.
But oh, the deterrence.

During the additional day
Three Israelis and
Fifteen Palestinians
Were killed.

Whose deterrence did it... • More...

Simple enough
The Two State Solution
Is better not mentioned,
Says Trump's man Greenblatt.
Too difficult a concept.

In fact, it is simple enough
1) The IDF leaves
The whole territory
2) A Palestinian state
Is... • More...

To be able to call home
After many hunger strikes
The state of Israel now agreed
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
And reached an agreement.
Both Hamas and Israel
Kept their part of the deal.

If it is possible to talk
Even to Hamas,
Let no one say again
That... • More...

Reality out of the blue
Conducting elections
As if there are
No Palestinians,
No occupation and
No siege of Gaza.

Then seeing reality
Flying in your face. • More...

The never-ending injustice
Gal Keidan was born
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".
France is the state
Of all its citizens".
What? Is there somebody
Like Rotem Sela
In all these... • More...
