In this chapter, the author reprints his reply to Achinoam Nini, an Israeli singer who wrote an open letter to the inhabitants of Gaza (published on Ynet on January 6, 2009) claiming that the Israeli attack on the region was meant to liberate the Palestinians from the dictatorship of Hamas and is therefore an act of love. Nini was referring to the Israeli military strike on Gaza (known as operation “Cast Lead”) that began on December 27, 2008, and lasted for three weeks, killing almost 1,500 Palestinians and causing vast damage in the Gaza strip. In his letter, the author asserts that “the betrayal of the peace camp, at this of all times, exceeds the damage caused by the right a thousand fold.” He condemns the Israeli Occupation as the only one responsible for the poverty, sickness, and horror in Gaza and urges Nini to “help your brothers and sisters in Palestine rid themselves of the occupation”.
