As I was painting her, this came to mind

Israeli Woman



A tough no nonsense woman

Confident aggressive compassionate 

Holocaust lineage forged in fire

The perfect weapon lean and sharp 

With gentle touch heals 

The Palestinian child

Beautiful painting, and the theme of reconciliation resonates.

Yes, I liked the twist, that not all - in fact many - Israeli people are against their present governments policies.

I didn't expect this poem when I read the title
well done
