It’s the only land in which killing innocent people is considered self defense.
It’s the only land in which imprisoning children is considered self defense.
It’s the only land that confiscates lands to erase history.
It’s the only land that forbids you from practicing your culture, because it is a threat.
It’s the only land that forbids you from keeping your memory because it is a threat.
It’s the only land that hates you because you are what you are.
When I started writing the lines above, I was thinking of children prisoners in Israel, like Ahem Tamimi, who was arrested for slapping a soldier, who refused to get out of her land.
But, now I want to share this:
Last week, the poet Dareen Tatour is convicted for writing a poem, because according to Israel it contains incitement.
The poem: “Resist, My People, Resist them”
Simple as that.
Read The terror of poetry
But nothing happens when when Jewish Israeli people publicly say, shout, write, sing: “Death to Arabs”
(Instagram Pictures above contains many Facebook profile names contain “Death To Arabs” between brackets)
This is the only democracy in the Middle East, by the way. And Arabs are terrorists!
