For Omar Isar for whom the State of Israel is constructing a tunnel. His house in Al Walaja, Bethlehem District, will be surrounded by an electric fence. Whatever the family of five members wants to do – they have to leave or to arrive through this tunnel. Omar refused to sell his land to Israel. Next to his house he can hear detonations in order to build the basement for the israeli wall and to destroy his house by the ground motion. For him, who resists. And for all the others thousands of Palestinians who are not covered and protected by the democratic State of Israel. Justice will win.

You remember

how it was
when he knocked on the door
asking for bread
while the holes in his jackets
talked about life

how he stood in the door
while you hide yourself behind the TV
turning up the volume
applicating the cherryred of the lipstick
still with chewing chops
– Up and down, up and down –
the pastry crunching between the white teeth

you remember
his face
the eyes like dark seas
so many little fishes swimming
going to the ground
and returning as naked bones
that pierces the apple of the eye

you remember
the tear of blood
transforming in a pure tear
coming out of his eyes
dropping in your warm womp

Do you feel how that was?

(with different voices and at different levels of volume, from whispering to loud)

The dignity of man is inviolable.

The dignity of man is inviolable.
The dignity of man is inviolable.
The dignity of man is inviolable.
The dignity of man is inviolable.
The dignity of man is inviolable.
The dignity of man is inviolable.
The dignity of man is inviolable.
The dignity of man is inviolable.
The dignity of man is inviolable.
The dignity of man is inviolable.

(Liva Haensel)
