Thank you Lina


Thank you Lina 

When I visited my friend Najah in Leeds, we were sitting watching the news together with her little girl Lina, who surprised us with her deep wisdom and warm compassion

 Six year old Lina

Sitting with her mum

In her world of dreams

Gazing away

Abruptly she says

“Mama

You know those Jews

Who took our land

If suddenly they changed their mind

Decided to give it all back

Even our trees and our food

Then they’d become poor

They needn’t to worry

We will give them some of our food

Share with them every thing we have

Mama

We won’t be bad”

 

This little Lina… only months ago

Had a soldier’s gun pointing against her head

This little Lina… only weeks ago

Had her uncle’s home by their bulldozers

Razed to the ground 

This little Lina… didn’t know that

 Only today… some settlers

Protected by guns and soldiers

Invaded her village Silwan near Jerusalem

Forced the inhabitants out of their homes

And occupied them

 

This little Lina

Proved very wrong all that they say

"The abused will become the abuser"

 This little Lina… never lost her soul

This little Lina… no doubt

Is our hope

And our ultimate victory
