On Leaving Israel . . . Again
I was caught by surprise with the results of the recent 2022 election in not-so Holy Land (AKA Israel) where the party that stands for “A good Arab is a Dead Arab” won more than 10% of the vote. The chaos and lawlessness in the south, and the north of Israel, and the as yet (50+ years later) unresolved conflict about Palestinian autonomy in the West Bank, feels once more like I need to leave Israel AGAIN, for ‘moral reasons’ the way I left in the late 1970’s.
