As Levit describes it, “the immediate threat of annexation is outrageous but not unexpected; it is merely an augmentation of an institutional process that Israel began as early as 1948 — of a continued dispossession of Palestinian land with the world watching, complicit in its silence to the theft.”
Levit was born in Israel, served in the army, and received undergraduate degrees in linguistics and literature from Tel Aviv University. She discusses her book on rabble.ca. Rabble blogs are the personal pages of some of Canada’s most insightful progressive activists and commentators.
