The pen – mightier than the sword?September 9, 2013

02/08/2006 – Whereas 60 young Israeli writers are calling for a cease-fire, an older generation views this as a ‘war of no choice.’   By Shiri Lev-Ari

“This week a group of some 60 young literary personalities – authors, song writers, critics and editors – got together and published a letter calling for an immediate halt to the war in Lebanon. The letter is part of the beginning of a series of planned activities that will apparently continue during the meeting of the signatories – mainly members of Israeli literature’s younger generation – and may include a demonstration. Among the initiators of the letter, which was sent to Defense Minister Amir Peretz, Education Minister Yuli Tamir and others, are authors Shimon Adaf, Dudu Busi and Nir Baram.”
