For 27 years, Vanunu has been deprived of his liberty - for blowing the whistle, for telling the truth. It is a moral and geopolitical disgrace.

Israel, Let Kafka Go!

Benjamin Lazarus | Posted 07.09.2012 | Home
Benjamin Lazarus

In 1918, Kafka wrote about the early kibbutzim in Palestine, arguing there should be no legal courts - "Palestine needs earth (...) but it does not need lawyers".
