Why I`ll be on the Gaza flotilla this Jewish New YearOrly Noy - +972 Magazine - In the days set by Jewish tradition for introspection and forgiveness, I am reminded that as an Israeli citizen I am responsible for the disaster and tragedy befalling the people of Gaza. I am reminded of one girl, Muna, whom I saw in a film by Gaza-based director Fida Qishta: bombings, white phosphorous, children’s bodies, more bombings, cruel and arbitrary attacks on fisherman, gunfire at farmers whose land is too close to the no-go zone, a father harrowingly calling for his son among the wreckage, and a 10-year-old girl, Muna, who accompanies Qishta throughout almost the entire movie, pointing out the location where the people she knew were killed.

Naomi Chazan: Against a referendum on ending the occupation Naomi Chazan - Times of Israel - The idea of a referendum is motivated by the need to challenge the foot-dragging of the Netanyahu government. Referenda, however, are very fickle political instruments. To conduct the first referendum in Israel’s history on the most essential and contentious question on the public agenda is foolhardy at best, if not downright irresponsible. Moreover, The notion that Israelis have the right to decide the political destiny of Palestinians is beyond absurd.It assumes that Israel possesses all the lands in question and can retain or discard them at will. Worldwide, referendums on the future of a specific territory are conducted among the residents of the areas affected - not among their overlords.[ak] 13/9/2016
