Either you be or you don’t be

“To be or not to be is not a question of compromise. Either you be or you don’t be.”
-Golda Meir

Human stupidity will never surprise me.

In addition, few days ago, I took a flight and Lady who worked on airport asked me why do I come there
I laughed and asked: “Is it forbidden”?
No but you have job in your country, you are a writer, what are you doing here.
Excuse me lady, may I visit your country as a tourist, you know for writers’ inspiration is important, hence, this is almost discrimination.

If I could choose where I could live it would be Israel
Israel is in my heart and soul.
Every time I want to give up it reminds me that I have reason to fight by writing, by telling the truth.

However, unfortunately antisemitism is rising.
I wonder what EU is doing?
Because no one here (in my country and in Europe i guess) get an information when Israeli civilians are under rocker attack, when terrorist stab innocent people.

Yes, I am writer, I write poems, essays, scenario, but I am journalist as well which means i will never ever keep silent.

Israel is magnificent, however people who have prejudice wound it cruelty.

Furthermore, I do not worry, as long as there are brave people who will step up and tell the truth, the facts, Israel will live.

Most important to say is that Israel wants peace, Israeli live for peace, i believe some decent Arabs too.

We are waiting the day to say that we are brothers.

We are waiting the day when there won’t be bloodshed.

We are waiting the day of hugs peace, shalom and selam
However Jewish state has right to exist.
In my opinion every country is specific, magnificent, but for those who thing that their country is my dream land….
My one and only home is Israel, because of my roots and because I deeply believe i belong there.
Nevertheless, I have been in Israel many times, I have lived for six months, so pleas do not hide real facts by those who have never visited it
Prejudice never made a human, truth does.
Do not judge what you have not seen, you do not have right on it

Enthusiasm is that secret and harmonious spirit which hovers over the production of genius.
—Isaac D’Israeli
