This Week's Message 

Who had an Independence Day?

The State of Israel

Celebrated its 74th

Independence Day

While making it clear

To the Palestinians

That they will never

Get to celebrate

An Independence Day

Of their own.

The settlers in the

Armed Jewish enclave

An the heart of Hebron

Also celebrated

Israel's Independence as

The Israeli Air Force flyover

Swept above the city.

Is it feasible

To live like this forever,

Independence Day celebrations

For Israelis and

A regime of oppression

For the Palestinians?

It appears that

This situation is

Extremely costly and painful.
