Israeli Memorials

October-December 2006

The plentiful memorials, mostly to those who lost their lives creating the Israeli state,
are sites for somber reflection by Jewish Israelis
and reminders to non-Jewish citizens that they don't count quite as much.

The Am Yisrael Hai graffiti in three of the later photos is also everywhere.
I was told they're a religous campaign,
but "The People of Israel Lives" was always a Zionist slogan as well.
Like the memorials, it warms the hearts of some,
and rubs in the faces of others that they're not particularly welcome.
