Israeli poetry protest against the invasion of Gaza, but the Peace Camp is hurting.
This is poached from Linh Dinh's blog, Sonnet Eighteen, which is a reading by Israeli poets against the violence in Gaza...check out the context there. Thanks to Linh Dinh for speaking out, we are bottled in the lamps of silence. In Israel, the violence is seen as a just reaction for Hamas rockets, and the wider peace movement is struggling against the common narrative of national self-defense.
