Danielle Alma Ravitski: As a political and human rights activist, I came to realize that the debate on a one-state solution in Israel/Palestine reveals a more profound issue of boundaries – not geographical ones, but psychological ones. This is especially true for Israeli liberal leftists, who talk about “one-state” with two contradictory voices.
Danielle Alma Ravitzki on how Amos Oz embodied the racism and contradictions of Liberal Zionist ideology: “Oz was a mirror image of the ‘Israeli left wing,’ and supported more than a few massacres committed by Israel in Gaza, and spoke in favor of apartheid soldiers. He fatuously believed in the misleading, dangerous idea of a ‘humane apartheid’, so archetypical of the liberal left ideology which adores masculinity, cherishes militarism, and idolizes white supremacy. Oz was a living example of this infamous, and insidious ideology.”
Dareen Tatour will spend the next five months in an Israeli prison after being convicted of incitement over posting a poem online. Her close friend, Israeli artist Danielle Alma Ravitzki, writes about the “worst day of her life,” the ride to the prison last Wednesday where she dropped off Dareen.
