The Battle for the Right to be You

In June of 2015

The Palestinian Center for Public Opinion

Conducted a poll of Palestinians living in Jerusalem

And discovered that 52% of them indicated

They would prefer to be citizens of Israel

Whether they held that opinion

Because Arafat embezzled the sums donated

To build their nation


Because Abbas is alleged to be embezzling the sums donated

To build their nation


Because Hamas’ leaders are alleged to be embezzling the sums donated

To build their nation


Because no matter how much money is donated

To build their nation,

Their leaders don’t ever seem to get around to

Building a nation

Instead, they build



and Terror.

Now is the time

To remind the world

That in Israel

The 22nd World’s Best Democracy

Its inhabitants are FREE

As opposed to the Non-Freedom of Hamas in Gaza

And the Non-Freedom of the PLO in the West Bank

May God enable the world’s democracies

To recognize that the hate, war and terror Israel has been battling

Since before she became a nation

Is exactly the same battle the West and Europe

Finds itself engaged in . . .

A battle for

The right to choose

Your spouse

Your art

Your opinion

Your religion

Your way of life

A battle for

The right to be

The human soul

You were placed here

To be.
