Our hearts break for the slowness of change.
In 2009 we created this HOPE art for Jewish Voice for Peace after a horrendous round of bombing in Gaza. Since then many more bombings… and now the current onslaught. The US plays a pivotal role as a chief supplier of arms to Israel. But more and more the voices for justice are overpowering the voices of reactionary defense of Israel. Our growing dissent in the US and a new movement for divestment, boycotts and sanctions against Israel — until compliance with international law — will prevail. The occupation has to end in Palestine. There are fears about anti-semitism and there is real anti-semitism but neither should prevent justice for Palestinians.
