Lee Diamond – Settlements or Israel itself

Lee Diamond – Settlements or Israel itself

The critique of Israel today

From all sides including from within

Is based upon the “settlements”

Or what is referred to as the “occupation”

 

Yet I recall that before

The settlements

And before the occupation

Of   ‘67

The war raged

48’ 56’ Attrition’

 

I recall the Yom Kippur war

Fadein,  busses blown up

Bombings

Knifings

Rockets

 

I remember a wall dividing

Jerusalem

And gunfire

 

Indeed I ask

When there were no settlements

When there was no occupation

Did we live in peace ?

Did our cousins love us

Were they at peace with us?

 

Or did they call for pushing

The Jews into the sea?

 

Settlements, if halted

Will lead to acceptance ?

Occupation if ended, will

Lead to acceptance?

 

Perhaps we need to end the occupation

Perhaps we need to end the settlements

 

But what if settlements and occupation really mean:

 

Jerusalem

Tel Aviv

Jaffa

Haifa

Beersheba

Eilat?

 

Perhaps occupation

Really Means Israel?

Unsettling to this leftist
