This Week's Message


A bridge too far
Will the Trump Plan
Bring peace with the Palestinians?
Of course not.

Will it bring peace
Between Netanyahu and Ganz?
Also that not.

Will it give Netanyahu
A green light to
Forget about peace... • More...

Hospitality
This week, Russian
President Putin
Comes visiting.

The Defence Minister
Instructed the army
To start persecuting
Political activists.

All that
To make a guest
Feel at home? • More...

Lies
In Iran, citizens
Went out
On the sreets,
Because
Their government
Lied to them
For three days.

In Israel
The lies
Can go on
For ever. • More...

War with Iran
Is it really
Good for Israel
If Trump
Drags the US
Into war
With Iran? • More...

Rather a stumbling block
Netanyahu's immunity
A cornerstone
Of Israeli democracy?

Is it not rather
An enormous
Stumbling block? • More...

Who is the judge?
Secretary Pompeo:
Settlements are legal.

The International Prosecutor:
Settlements are
A war crime.

Who will decide?
There are judges
In the Hague. • More...

The issues defining the future
Will this
Third elections campaign
Deal with
Peace and Territories,
Settlements and Palestinians?

Most likely not.
Politicians will again take care
Not to touch the issues
Which will define the... • More...

The lesser evil
Netanyahu wanted to form
A government which would
Annex the Jordan Valley

Compared with such
A fatal blow to
Any possibility of
Israeli-Palestinian peace,
Going to new elections
Would be the... • More...

Desperate gambles
A 16-year old shot to death
On the Gaza border.
A 18-year old shot to death
Near to Hebron.
In between, many houses
Destroyed in East Jerusalem.

Did all that help
To make Israel more safe?... • More...

Too busy
Trump is offering
Unlimited support
For an aggressive policy
Of settlements and annexations.

But Netanyahu is too busy,
Devoting his energy
To a bitter struggle
For personal survival.

A blessing... • More...

The basics of democracy
All citizens,
Regardless of
Religion or ethnicity,
Go to the polls and
Elect their representatives.

All elected
Knesset Members
Take part in all
Political processes
Including the formation
Of a... • More...

The Iranian paradox
A country which
Secretly produces
Nuclear arms
Is committing
A grave dangerous act.

Netanyahu vowed
To absolutely
Not let Iran
Do that.

How will he
Prevent them?
Will he use
The nuclear arms... • More...

Neither one without the other
The inhabitants of
Southern Israel
Want to be free of
The threat of missiles
Shot from the Gaza Strip,
And to live a normal life.

The inhabitants of
The Gaza Strip
Want to be free of
The blockade... • More...

Sad anniversary
The State of Israel
Celebrated the
Twenty Fifth Anniversary
Of the peace with Jordan
By placing a Jordanian citizen
In detention without trial.

Due to a prolonged
Hunger strike
She was taken
To... • More...

Why not?
The Yitzhar settlers claim
To be "religious".
That did not stop them
From beating with crowbars
An 80-year old Rabbi,
Who helped Palestinians
Harvesting their olives.

The Yitzhar settlers
Are... • More...

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!
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...

"Interrogation"
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...

Confidence...
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...

Chutzpah
"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 -
Welcome!

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...
