Quotation from Amos Oz “You have two peoples with their backs against the wall” — Mar. 1 2002
Taking up the classic Zionist comparison between Palestinians and Nazis, for 1948 and the present.
- Oz, Amos (1939-2018) ( 5 quotations )
" As I wrote this book [on 1948], it became horribly clear to me how much we are standing with our backs against the wall, in a profound way. But it's the same for the Palestinians. What makes it so hard is that, in this place, you have two peoples with their backs against the wall. To me, personally, I discovered that what happened to my Uncle David and Aunt Malka and to my cousin Daniel in Vilna [during the Holocaust] was very close to what was happening to us in Jerusalem. It was a hairsbreadth away, very close. "
