No future, no attention
Depressing words from the Israeli poet Yitzhak Laor:
Israeli families of dead soldiers or dead civilians get a follow-up, even on foreign TV, for they had a future ahead of them before they died. Did the Palestinian children who died in Rafah have any future? No. So they are dead, and it will be over in a few days. Palestinians don't get a follow-up, not even on foreign TV. Maybe there'll be a documentary movie, followed by some public discussion about whether to allow the movie to be publicly screened, or whether it's another sign of 'the new anti-semitism'. Nothing will be followed up. The Israeli army is secure. It calls itself the Israel Defence Force.
