This Week's Message


No more pressure cooker
What to do when
The bloodshed is over?

To continue the siege
Until an even
More terrible war?

Only a flourishing Gaza,
Part of sovereign Palestine,
Can provide us with
A quiet border. • More...

New hope for the future
It is not enough
To reach a cease-fire
And keep intact
An intolerable situation -

The siege of Gaza
Must be lifted
And Inhabitants of Gaza
Must get free access
To the outside world
And a new hope... • More...

Another round
Those who refused
To accept Hamas
In a Palestinian government
Negotiating with Israel -

Get Hamas
In another
Futile and useless
Round of war. • More...

Infernal carousel
Attack and revenge,
Revenge and attack,

Kidnapping and killing,
Killing and kidnapping…

Until when??? • More...

Definitely not
Everybody in whom
A human heart beats
Still hopes that
The three boys
Will come back
Alive and well.

Does this
Make the world
Forget that
Israel occupies
Millions of Palestinians
For 47 years? • More...

It does not
Does the arrest
Of the Speaker
Of the Palestinian Legislature
Help in locating
The abducted boys?

Netanyahu, too, knows
It does not. • More...

Force feeding
The force feeding
Of hunger strikers
Contrary to
Medical ethics
Will not diminish
Their struggle.

Worldwide protest
Against detention without trial
Will only become louder. • More...

47 years old
The occupation is
47 years old.

Forty seven years of
Hatred and bloodshed,
Enormous waste of resources,
Corruption of our society.

Israel must
Free itself
Of the occupation! • More...

Palestinian Unity - good for us, too
Gush Shalom

Congratulates the Palestinian People

On the end of the split

Which was harmful

To them and to us.


The Palestinian Unity government

Could and should be

Our partner for

Peace. • More...

A day later
The Pope made
A call for peace,
Striking a chord
Also with
Non-Christians

A day later:
“Jerusalem Day”
Netanyahu crying
“Forever ours!” • More...

Occupation for ever
Maccabi Tel Aviv
Won a European Cup
And the crowds
Went wild
In the streets.

But with no peace in sight
And occupation for ever -
How long will
The gates of Europe
Remain open to us? • More...

Legislation barrage
A panicking Netanyahu
Starts a legislation barrage:

Blocking prisoner release -
In case peace
Is not dead yet,

And abolishing
The presidency -
Because his own seat
Is shaking. • More...

So said the Chief of Staff
IDF Chief of Staff
Benny Ganz
Said on Memorial Day:
“The calm situation
Is a misleading illusion.
Any spark might cause
A conflagration”

A society which normally
Admires the Army
Completely... • More...

Its first Independence Day
The State of Israel
Is celebrating
Its sixty-sixth
Independence Day.

Israel’s future
Will not be assured
Until the State of Palestine
Celebrates its first
Independence Day. • More...

They don’t want peace!
In his Bar Ilan Speech
Netanyahu accepted
A Palestinian state.

Now the Palestinians
Want to know
What will be
Its borders.
 
Netanyahu’s reaction:
“That proves
They don’t want peace!” • More...

A death trap
The talks have
Collapsed,
The occupation
Goes on,
And with it
The conflict.

A family visit
To a settlement
In occupied territory
Turned into
A death trap. • More...

The danger of peace Has passed!
“The danger of peace
Has passed!”
A senior Likud member
Happily declared,
According to the media.

Netanyahu has won.
More such victories,
And we are lost. • More...

Both aspirations Must be addressed
The Israelis wait
For the release
Of Pollard.

The Palestinians
Expect
Marwan Barghouti.

In order to move
Towards peace,
Both aspirations
Must be addressed. • More...

Says Foreign Minister Lieberman
“The Palestinian appeal
To the Human Rights Council
Undermines trust
And endangers the negotiations!”
Says Foreign Minister Lieberman.

Not so
The killing of three
Palestinians in Jenin.
Nor... • More...

Kosher certificate
Who is a Jew?
An Israeli citizen
Can’t be considered Jewish
Without the Kosher certificate
Of the Chief Rabbinate.
- So said Ben Gurion.

What is a Jewish state?
The State of Israel
Can’t be... • More...

To serve In an occupation army
50 high school students
Told Netanyahu
That their conscience
Does not allow them
To serve
In an occupation army.

Happy the people
That has such
Sons and daughters. • More...

Our part
"We have already
Done our part!”
Said Netanyahu
In response to
President Obama.

No doubt:
In settlement construction
Netanyahu has done
Very much indeed. • More...

Judaization and Zero Tolerance
Naftali Bennet,
A senior minister in
The Netanyahu cabinet,
Advocates “Judaization”
Of the Negev and Galilee
And expresses “Zero tolerance”
For the aspirations
Of Israel’s Arab citizens.

Is this... • More...

On the moon?
Netanyahu is for two states
(So he says)
But sees nothing wrong
In settlement expansion.

A Palestinian state where?
On the moon? • More...

The Boycott Law
On Sunday,
Nine Judges of
The Supreme Court   
Will judge
The Boycott Law.

Consumer boycotts
Are legitimate:
Boycotting cottage cheese
Because its price
Is too high,
Boycotting settlements
Whose... • More...

Israel’s Vital interest
Not because of
International boycott
Should we
Make peace.

We should
Make peace
Because it is
In Israel’s
Vital interest! • More...

THE DIFFERENCE
A Jew living in Palestine
Subject to and respecting
Palestinian law
Is one thing.

A settler who lives
In an armed enclave
Under the protection
Of an occupation army
Is something very different. • More...

ADVICE
Advice to Netanyahu:

Rather than
Being dazzled
By the Zionist speech
Of a Canadian PM,
Listen to
The warning
Of our own
Captains of industry:

Failure of
The negotiations
Might deal a severe blow... • More...

SABOTAGE
Defense Minister Ya’alon
Openly opposes
Peace with
The Palestinians.

A minister in control
Of the army
Has many ways
To sabotage negotiations.

A Prime Minister
Who leaves him there
Is fully... • More...

That is, in a democratic state
To the attention of
Foreign Minister
Lieberman:

A state may
Give up territory.

A state may not
Strip its citizens
Of their citizenship.

That is, of course,
In a democratic state. • More...
