Israel’s Checklist for Palestinians to Reach a Settlement
by Mark Chmiel
Dear Bella Levenshteyn
If you read the US press
The following will strike you
As conventional wisdom
Destroy your rockets.
No more stone-throwing.
Enough already of this “we’re the victim” routine.
Forget the “Nakba.”
No more arms smuggling from those tunnels.
Be nonviolent, you know, passive nonresistance.
Apologize to us for all the stuff you made us do.
Don’t let a day pass without remembering one of our children whom you murdered.
Pay us reparations for all the damages you’ve caused.
Be grateful for what we’ve allowed you.
Remember the Shoah.
