Friday’s Poetic Pause: “Ungrateful”

The annual expressions of gratitude from the U.S.’ Thanksgiving holiday now subsided, I share a poem I wrote yesterday about how hard it is at times to be genuinely grateful.

Short and to the Point

Those who favor Palestinians say peace is not achievable without justice.
Those who favor Israel say that peace is not achievable without submission.
What they both fail to realize is that with partisan justice and forced submission, their actions are divisive and a prelude to endless suffering, terrorist acts,…

You're Also Right

My friend, Sagi Melamed, wrote this article. As you read it ask youreself this: How do you promote the cause of peace when both sides to a conflict believe they're right?
