Gaza is a shtetl. The Israeli army are cossacks. Palestinians are my brothers.
Gaza is a ghetto. The Israeli army are LAPD. Palestinians are my sisters.
Gaza is a prison. The Israeli army is the warden. Palestinians are my family.
Israelis are my family. We are all family, all peoples of the book. Hebrew is Arabic with more sarcasm. A hijab is a babushka with more flavor. I am not anti-Semitic, because we are all Semites. I love my people. I love all people. I love justice. This is not justice.
This is a war crime. This is premeditated murder. Gaza is a shtetl. This is a pogrom.
I am a Jew. The Palestinians are my family. Israel, you are murdering your own blood.
