This Week's Message 

Why so harsh?

"Gaza should get
No vaccines
And no humanitarian aid.
I don’t care if
Hundreds of people in Gaza
Will die of the coronavirus."

So declared
Knesset Member Ayelet Shaked.
Why so harsh?
Well, the Palestinians never returned
The bodies of two Israeli soldiers
Killed seven years ago
In the same war when
More than 2000 Palestinians
Got killed.

The feelings of two Israeli families
Seeking to hold their sons' funerals
Count more than the lives
Of hundreds of Palestinian patients.

These are the moral priorities
Of a woman likely to become
The next Minister of Justice,
Where she would make
Decisions on sensitive issues
And appoint judges
To the Supreme Court.
