Time in Palestine

Where are the borders

June 6, 2011 

Long time musical activist, song writer and poet, David Rovics, listening to Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu’s speech to the US Congress, wrote the following piece and the musical (video) response.

“For a long time now, every time I hear an Israeli patriot or apologist complaining that such-and-such a group or government won’t recognize Israel as a Jewish state, I always wonder — even if there is a good reason the Christians, Muslims and atheists of Palestine should live under some form of Jewish rule, how does one go about recognizing the legitimacy of a state that itself won’t disclose exactly what its borders are? How does that work? Nobody seems to know. Ask the next Israeli you meet and see what they say. Where are your country’s borders?”
