As our democracy slips further and further into the Mediterranean, it is past time to wake up.
The New World Order is upon us, and a sad one it is at that.
First, there was the boycott law (see information on law and Association for Civil Rights response here )
Then there was the proposed law to investigate Israeli human rights organizations (see Ha'aretz article on this proposed law )
Then there was the proposal to have kindergarden children begin each week with a raising of the flag and the singing of Hatikva (and see the Haa'retz op-ed on this initiative )
My dear Israeli (and other) friends: WE HAVE ENTERED THE DOOR OF THE FASCIST STATE. If we do not take notice and change course, we will only have ourselves to blame for what follows.
I sadly close this week with new verses to a well-known poem -
First they came for the boycotters, but I loved my Ahava lotion, so I did not speak out
Then they came for the human rights organizations, but I was busy planning my vacation, so I did not speak out
Then they came for the parents who did not want their babies to have to sing Hatikva every Sunday morning, but I was busy buying my grandson a new toy car, so I did not speak out
Then they came for me, and there was no one left to speak out
