Ayman Odeh, the Israeli Left’s Natural Leader

24 8 0

Ayman Odeh apologized to his followers Wednesday for seeming to take a break from politics on that stormy day, which marked the deadline for submitting party lists to the Central Election Committee. He explained that he had more important business than handling last-minute deals, the stench from which will remain with us for a long time. He had something more important to say, for which he thought every lawmaker should stop in their tracks to think about.

“Poet Leah Goldberg died 50 years ago today,” he tweeted. “Her words are no less exciting today than when she wrote then.” He then quoted from one of her more familiar poems:

“For one who does not believe

It’s hard to live this year

The fields ask for a blessing

The sea asks for faith

And you – you ask for nothing.”
