“Pitting the Power of Culture Against the Culture of Power” | Israel Shuts Down Palestinian Literary Festival

Sad news. Petty abuse of power.

Surely this is the sort of thing that Israel ought to be celebrating: a peaceful literary event, supported by UNESCO.

Instead, they send in a squad of 12 armed police, while their politicians ignore international law and even pressure from to US, and announce they’ll keep expanding settlements. I just wonder sometimes, do you even want peace?
