Chemistry teacher

My sister handed me her phone, to show me her Facebook news feed and said “He used to teach you at school, right?” I looked at her phone, not entirely grasping what was going on, or what was she trying to show me, or who was in that picture. And then I read carefully, his […]

Presumably by Hamas. Let me make some introductions first. The three Israeli youth were brought up by Zionist Israeli families living […]

Colored Balloons

In the fields of colored balloons, the place we met. A space, filled with colored spirits and life. All majestic. There was a statement an assertion of faith for which I did not approve.
