I post these articles today because, like many others, I too saw and passed on the terrible videos posted last week on Twitter of young children being shot and killed by Israeli soldiers. There is something terribly wrong in Israel. I am one among many concerned writers whose work is included in the anthology Extraordinary Rendition, (American) Writers on Palestine, edited by Ru Freeman, OR Books, to be released December 2015; my work excerpted there is part of a short story written after the horrific attacks on Gaza in 2008, when I, like many millions of us around the world, reeled in horror at the dropping of bombs on ordinary, peace-loving families, and women, men, and children of every age. Our world has to change. We have to move from a casual orientation toward war to a conscious orientation toward peace. Part of that move has to involve a clear-eyed look at Israel and what the terrible policies of extreme, terrorist militantism there is doing. We need to get past Israeli “exceptionalism” and expose the real truth of what is happening there, in Israel and in Palestine, and these articles listed here give deep insight into what is happening.
