In this chapter, the author responds to Nissim Calderon's article “And the Left Shall Stay Silent at That Time,” published on Ynet on October 1, 2009. In his article, Calderon urged the Israeli left to go silent and argued that the Israeli right has accepted the peace process as its policy. For Calderon, it is the left's obligation to keep quiet and stay out while the right government fulfills this vision. The author asserts that the role of most self-proclaimed Israeli “leftists” in the Occupation battlefront is simply to create “a facade of democratic progress, so that the Western world can find it easier to keep supporting the Israeli Occupation, maybe now it is time to be silent.” He also talks about binationalism and the importance of solidarity between Jews and Arabs.
