My First Letter


My first letter

 Image

During the 1967 war, I was only seven when we were forced to leave Palestine in search of safety, thinking that it’s only a matter of weeks before we could go back home. We were denied that right ever since.

As a refugee in Jordan I wrote this letter to my auntie who stayed behind in Palestine.  However, she never received it.  When I saw her 37 years later, I read the letter to her face to face.

Dearest Auntie Intisar,

I have been waiting

For many, many days

Many, many weeks

To come back home

And see you

Give you a big hug

I miss you so

I miss my bedtime stories

You used to tell me

Ali Baba, wishater Hassan

I miss your warm and gentle hand

Stroking through my hair

Till I fall asleep

I tried to come with my mum

And cross the boarders

Many times

“They” wouldn’t let us through

If I’d known

That this is what they’d do

I would never ever have left Palestine

But don’t worry auntie

Because I have a plan

When I grow up

I’ll go to university

I’ll study magic

And I’ll become a fairy

I’ll turn all the soldiers into little ants

Harmless, tiny and peaceful

They’ll go away

And Leave us alone

We’ll cross the boarders

And be together again

In our homeland

Palestine

Love, hugs and kisses

Your niece

Nahida

A PALESTINIAN QUOTE 

From

Don’t call me a Palestinian of the Palestinian Territories because it is called Palestine.

Don’t give me a fraction of my homeland and call it a solution.

Don’t give me oppression and call it peace.

Don’t give me a Bantustan and call it a home.

Don’t give me a prison and call it freedom.

Don’t draw the borders of my existence according to your whims and interests and call it a state.

My home is not a disfigured result of a till-death-do-us-part-marriage between the occupier and the champions of negotiators-for-life that yields a Bantustan on 20% of my homeland.

My home is not a “lets legitimize the Zionist racist colonization of Palestine and hope they accept us and allow us to live with them one day” tale for the sake of fame and a shoulder pat from “conditional-supporters”, while giving the Zionist usurpers a right to my land which they stole and continue to colonize… a right to my home which they destroyed and continue to destroy…. a right to my village which they ethnically cleansed and continue to do so to the rest of Palestine… a right to Palestine, the Palestine they raped and continue to rape for over 63 years, a rape they are proud of and celebrate very year while denying us even the tears and the memories and the names of the victims they massacred and the villages they erased.

My Palestine is the home that is mine since the dawn of history till the end of history.

My Palestine is the home of my ancestors, the home between the Mediterranean and the Jordan River.

SYS: Save Your Souls


Save Your Souls



The rules I follow are

  • Ignore the ignorant
  • Ignore the arrogant
  • With
    dishonesty, no real debate or dialogue is possible

Hence, I do not talk to or discuss anything with zionists, I only
address them

As a Palestinian who suffered personally at the
hands of zionists; a lifetime of horror, loss of home, loss of land,
loss of homeland, loss of identity, loss of loved ones; I say: yes
indeed they have robbed us of everything they could get their hands on,
but not our faith, not our dignity, not our courage, not our humanity,
not our love of life, not our hope!

As
such, this is yet another call for those zionists who wish to save
their souls:

You have come from far away countries,
occupied our land by force and terror, oppressed our people with your
might and power, furthermore, instead of showing good will or remorse
and a sincere desire to befriend and live in peace with your neighbours;
you still go beside yourselves to prove to us and to the world how
reprehensible you have become, as you sink deeper and deeper into
misdemeanour, corruption, fabrication and violence

What you
fail to understand is that every thing in the world is a flux

The situation in the Middle East will not stay the same for ever

The support that you got accustomed to, will no doubt evaporate as
your crimes get exposed

The balance of power will undoubtedly
change

Sooner or later it will shift, and it won’t be a shift
in your favour

And before you know it, you will suddenly find
yourselves surrounded by billions of outraged Muslims and angry people
from all over the world

Instead of preparing for a good future
with the people who surround you, who are mostly Muslims; what do you
do? You go berserk with your lies and aggression; and like a mad dog,
you wage a wild decadent war against Islam as a religion and against
Muslims as followers

What a pathetic vision of a pathetic
tribe, who chose to implant itself in the heart of two billion Muslims!

Can’t you see the pitiable sad future you are creating for
yourselves, generating only anger by your arrogance and uninvited
aggression?

Instead of attempting to understand the culture and
the faith of those around you, you go spewing lies and propaganda in an
attempt to disfigure the Islamic resistance that refuses to bow down to
your arrogance and greed

Instead of embracing the humane and
civilized culture that is still willing to forgive you despite the
horrors you have shown, by being nothing but a revolting boil in its
midst; you go attacking the very religion that teaches its followers
that forgiveness is better that revenge

Instead of trying to
understand those humans whom you’ve wronged and dehumanized; you still
feel smug and self-satisfied, drunken by your temporary superficial
might, and you keep deluding yourselves by perceiving those you’ve
oppressed as monsters and terrorist

Instead of opening your
hearts to learning some aspects of civilization (such as compassion,
honesty, generosity, hospitality, and tolerance) from your
culturally-refined neighbours, you deceive yourselves by the delusion of
your chosen-ness and you fantasise that your barbarity is a “light unto
the nations”!

Be ware poor souls of zion; this wretched attack
against Islam could be the final straw that will shatter your might
once and for all

You still smother yourselves with conceit and
self-importance as you shrivel into your tribal mentality, obscuring
every opportunity of understanding, destroying bridges and building
walls around your clan, isolating yourselves further and further away
from the human family

The superiority features and nauseating
arrogance that you display reflects only a poorer mentality and inferior
morality if only you could grasp

You have disfigured and
blemished your own faith, if only you could comprehend!

The
same beautiful true religion that was once inclusive you’ve
managed to reduce into the most tribalistic and exclusive ideology man
had ever known!

You are very short-sighted in that sense, as
you fail to look even a few years ahead!

For exclusivity is, by
definition, finite, hence self-destructive

Hear me well clan
of zion; even though we, Muslims, are not vengeful, nor are we
unforgiving by the virtues of our faith; however if you continue in the
same mannerism of barbaric behaviour in Palestine, along with your
shameless hasbara masks; you will inevitably face your retribution

What you fail also to see is that the world around you is changing

The world is awakening to the reality of your crimes

And
guess what? There is no going back

There is no way of
covering-up your crimes now

I know that you are still living in
your comfort bubble behind your “security” wall (psychological and
physical); but be absolutely sure that when you come face to face with
the hard reality about the changing world around you, the TRUTH will hit
you hard like a tsunami as never before

And while you are
still choosing to live in a state of complete denial, refusing to see
what is happening elsewhere, the truth will strike in a manner
unthinkable.

It will disturb your sleep as you wake up to the
nightmare of your creation

Shatter your illusions as you open
your eyes to the new reality

Paralyze your limbs as your
missiles and weapons rendered useless

And silence your lies
once and for all

NOTHING… NOTHING will save you then from the
outrage and anger of the decent people of the world except what you
could save NOW of whatever little left of your morality and humanity

Things as they stand now:

You are tiny tiny minority in a
sea of Muslims that surrounds you, and an ocean of world population who
are sick to their bones with your never-ending crimes and arrogance

Sooner or later you are going to find yourself in a position of
vulnerability

Sooner or later the scale of power will shift

This is only natural

Think……………….

………………………

Think of what would you like to happen to you in this imminent
future?

Would you rather carry on with your crimes against
Muslims in Palestine, Lebanon, Syria, Iraq, Iran, and Pakistan…etc?

Would you rather carry on with your hateful lies and fabrication
against Islam?

Would you rather create more and more enraged
and infuriated enemies?

Or would you rather STOP your crimes,
EMBRACE the TRUE owners of the land and WELCOME them back home, GIVE
them their land back, SEEK PEACE SINCERELY and PLEAD for FORGIVENESS
before it’s too late?

I am speaking with the same words that
many before me had spoken to you with

I am giving you a warning

(But don’t be so pathetic as to think that this warning is from a
little exiled Palestinian woman)

Ignore it if you wish

Or
be wise and heed

The choice is yours

A letter from the heart of a Muslim woman


A letter from the heart

of a Muslim woman

to the American people
who support Israel and its
wars

 

Dear friends

 

I am writing
this letter to you because of the devastation that is caused by your government
in our lands, and because of the immanent threat to world peace that I see your
government pushing for, again.

The way
things are moving now, I foresee great danger, and terrible risk to peace and
security to the whole world.

I am writing
to you because I care very much about humanity and I love our planet, with all
its inhabitants.

I am writing
to you because I believe in civilised dialogues, where people can express
themselves freely, without being patronized, silenced, ridiculed, imprisoned or
even killed for their beliefs.

I am writing
to you to build bridges not walls, and to take you on a short journey so you
may see things from our perspective.

 I am
writing to you for the purpose of advancing more realistic and humanistic
understanding and for trying together to achieve a more tolerant and peaceful
world.

I see
systematic efforts by most of your media pundits, to work endlessly at
dehumanizing Muslims and their faith, and I see that as pre-emptive
justification for more military attacks against more innocent civilians, aiming
at our total destruction.

When a group
of people (Muslims in this case) are seen as intrinsically evil, and when their
faith and beliefs are portrayed as violent, malicious, and aggressive, then,
anything done to those people is acceptable and defensible.

Without
talking to one another, and without trying sincerely to put extra effort to
understand the other, we will all be losers, and we’ll be driving our beautiful
world towards catastrophe and devastation… that breaks my heart, as a mother,
and as a human being.

 Is it
too much to ask “to open our hearts and our minds and listen to what the other
has to say” ?

Can we learn
something from little children; where prejudice and bigotry are non-existent ?

 Words
in your media are used and manipulated to imply deceptive meanings, so you are
kept in a state of constant fear, watching over your shoulders in panic from
“Islamist monsters bent on invading and destroying you”, never mind
how absurd and ridiculous such allegations in reality are.

The
zionist-controlled media has hijacked our language, and vocabulary and
disfigured our religion

They drilled
in people’s heads that:

Islam is
terror

Jihad is holy
war

Fatwa is
death penalty

Muslim women
are the manifestation of oppression, uneducated, forced into wearing the veil,
and enslaved by their men.

Muslim men
are fanatics, cruel, sadistic wife beaters

Muslim
children are terrorists in the making

When a c rime
is committed, the criminal is a criminal, but when a Muslim commits a crime,
even a petty one, he is immediately labelled a “Muslim criminal”
irrespective the fact that his faith opposes such crimes.  A Muslim
criminal committing a crime becomes “a Muslim terrorist”, and he
committed the crime because he is a Muslim and his faith teaches evil!

If only
Americans could understand that what is published in US medias and blogs, is
not the truth, but as much a lie as when your bankers all told you could borrow
almost limitless and never suffer any economic consequences.

The hard
facts about Islam and Muslims, are different, and the vast majority of Muslims
would not fit to this ugly stereotype.

Islam is
peace
: the root of the word Islam is Salam, which is one of the Holy Names of
God.  Salam is Arabic for Peace. The meaning of the word Islam is
beautiful as Islam is Arabic for bring into Peace.

The word Salam
is used for greeting others. Saying “as’Salam alaikum” to someone
means “Peace be upon you!”

When a Muslim
greets another person with “Peace be upon you,” the greeter is in
fact proclaiming a contract of Peace with the other person. Hence, if the
greeter has non-peaceful intentions towards the other person, he would be
engaging in hypocrisy, which is one of the Major Sins in Islam!

 “When a
(courteous) greeting is offered you, meet it with a greeting still more
courteous, or (at least) of equal courtesy. God takes careful account of all
things” Quran (4:86)

Jihad is
an Arabic word that means the endeavour to do your best to make this world a
better one:

 Any
effort to help achieve that is called jihad, or struggle, going to school to
learn is a form of jihad, being a mother rearing children is jihad, spreading
knowledge through teaching or writing is jihad, treating patients is jihad,
looking after sick parents is jihad, also defending yourself when attacked is
jihad, and struggling against oppression is jihad.

Any action
that one undertakes in order to bring good to mankind is jihad

Life with all
its ups and downs is a jihad

The highest
form of Jihad, however, is the inner Jihad, which is the Major Jihad that means
the never ending inner struggle against one’s arrogance, greed, and selfishness
in order to achieve the Generous Temperaments.

The Prophet
Muhammad, Peace be upon him, declared “Verily I was sent to this World to
define (and live by) the Generous Temperament.”

According to
him, the codes of Generous Temperament (makarem elakhlaq) are seven:

“Pardoning
those who have oppressed you

Giving to
those who have deprived you

Connecting
with those who have shunned you

Benefiting
those who have abused you

Counselling
those who have deceived you

Forgiving
those who have maligned you

Forbearing
with those who have angered you.”

Contrary to
common beliefs, the concept of holy war does NOT exist in Islam; it is a
European concept from the days of the crusaders, and has absolutely no
equivalent in Islam, it does however in the minds of the new crusaders as it seems
from so many video clip we have seen, of your hypocrite politicians and zionist
“evangelists”, and in the sick minds of those who invaded our lands
and murdered our people.


To translate the concept of Holy War into Arabic is almost impossible. It would
sound something like “Harb Muqaddassah” which does not exist in Arabic, even
the concept of it is unheard of, never used in spoken or written language, as
it is too contrary to Islamic principles and values !

How
misleading and dishonest is the translation and misconception of jihad as a
holy war then!

By writing
this, all I am doing is reclaiming my language back.

 

 

 Fatwa is
nothing but an expression of an opinion by an informed person:

 Being
what it is, it is not for any one to enforce their “fatwa” / opinion upon
anyone.

There is no
hierarchy system, no priesthood, no church institution, and no clergy in Islam;
and that is something totally misunderstood, and rarely ever mentioned.

Any Muslim is
entitled to make his/ her opinion from their understanding of the Qur’anic
text.

If those
opinions are expressed by some knowledgeable person, they are called “fatwa”.

All this
falsification, distortion, and misrepresentation of Islam (deliberate or not)
if not addressed and sorted out urgently, logically and with open-mindedness
and compassion, then our world is doomed!

Being a
Muslim woman and knowing exactly what Islam teaches, I feel dismayed and
heartbroken at the image that you are made to believe as a true representation
of us and of our faith

Now, if I
come to you and say: “well, no in fact Islam teach this or does not teach that”
would you take my word for it?

 Of
course not, so, I “quote” some of the specific teachings in order to
reflect-precisely- the position of Islam, from the most authentic source to
Muslims: the Qur’an.

 

Democracy and
Freedom of choice:

“No
compulsion in religion or ideology” (2:256).

 “Say: O
you that reject Faith!  I worship not that which you worship, and you do
not worship that which I worship… To you be your Way, and to me mine”.
(109:1-6)

“We showed
him the Way: whether he be grateful or ungrateful (rests on his will)”. (76:3)

 “Let
there arise out of you a band of people inviting to all that is good, enjoining
what is right, and forbidding what is wrong: They are the ones to attain
felicity”. (3:104)

“And
their affairs are (conducted) through consultation among themselves.”
(42:38)

“If any one
does a righteous deed, it ensures to the benefit of his own soul; if he does
evil, it works against (his own soul). In the end will you (all) be brought
back to your Lord”. (45; 15)

 

Relations
with others:

‘O mankind!
We created you from a single soul, male and female, and made you into nations
and tribes, so that you may come to know one another. Truly, the most honoured
of you in God’s sight is the greatest of you in righteousness. God is
All-Knowing, All-Aware’. (49.13)

 “And
among His Signs is the creation of the heavens and the earth, and the variations
in your languages and your colours: verily in that are Signs for those who
know”.(30-22)

 

Women’s’
issues

 

“Whoever
works righteousness, man or woman, and has Faith, verily, to him will We give a
new Life, a life that is good and pure and We will bestow on such their reward
according to the best of their actions”. (16-97)

 “The
Believers, men and women, are protectors one of another: they enjoin what is
just, and forbid what is evil: they observe regular prayers, practise regular
charity, and obey God and His Messenger. On them will God pour His mercy: for
God is Exalted in power, Wise”. (9:71)

“If any do
deeds of righteousness, be they male or female – and have faith, they will
enter Heaven, and not the least injustice will be done to them”. (3-124)

“Then shall
anyone who has done an atom’s weight of good, see it! And anyone who has done
an atom’s weight of evil, shall see it”. (99:7-8)

“It is He who
created you from a single soul, and made its mate of like nature, in order that
he might dwell with her (in love)”. (7:189)

“And among
His Signs is this: He created for you mates from among yourselves that ye may
dwell in tranquillity with them, and He plants love and mercy between your
(hearts): verily in that are Signs for those who reflect. 30-21

 

“For Muslim
men and women, for believing men and women, for devout men and women, for
truthful men and women, for men and women who are patient and constant, for men
and women who humble themselves, for men and women who give in Charity, for men
and women who fast (and deny themselves), for men and women who guard their
chastity, and for men and women who engage much in God’s praise; for them has
God prepared forgiveness and great reward”. (33:35)  

 

War and
peace:

 The
general rule is:

Fighting is
only allowed in case of self-defence, against Aggression (odwan) or Persecution
(fitnah).

‘You may
fight in the cause of God against those who fight you, but do not initiate
aggression. God does not love transgressors.’ (2.190) 

“O
believers, be you guardians of justice, witness for God. Let not a group’s
hostility to you cause you to deviate from justice; be equitable – that is
nearer to being God-conscious.” (5:8)

“To those
against whom war is made, permission is given (to fight back), because they are
wronged; and verily, God is most powerful for their aid; (They are) those who
have been expelled from their homes in defiance of right,-(for no cause) except
that they say, our Lord is God”. (22:39-40)

“God commands
justice, the doing of good, and liberality to kith and kin, and He forbids all
shameful deeds, and injustice and antagonism: He advices you, that ye may be
reminded.” (16-90)

“No soul
shall be made to bear the burden (liability) of another.” (35:18)

 “But
show them forgiveness, and say “Peace!” and soon shall they know!”
(43; 89)

“The
recompense for an injury is an injury equal thereto (in degree): but if a
person forgives and makes reconciliation, his reward is due from God; for (God)
loveth not those who are wrong-doers”. (42:40)

‘If they seek
peace, then seek you peace. And trust in God for He is the One that heareth and
knoweth all things.’ (8.61)

“But God does
call to the Home of Peace” (10-25)

 

“Ye who
believe! Stand out firmly for justice, as witnesses to God, even as against
yourselves, or your parents, or your kin, and whether it be (against) rich or
poor: for God can best protect both. Follow not the desires (of your hearts),
lest ye swerve, and if ye distort (justice) or decline to do justice, verily
God is well-acquainted with all that ye do. Thus, have We made of you a nation
justly balanced, that ye might be witnesses over the nations, and the Messenger
a witness over yourselves” (2-143)

  “Show
forgiveness, speak for justice and avoid the ignorant.” (7:199)

“It may well
be that God will bring about love (and friendship) between you and those with
whom you are now at odds.” (60:7)

“Nor can
goodness and evil be equal. Repel evil with what is best: if you do so, he who
is your enemy will become a close friend.” (41.34)

**********************

I am only a
mother, and I am also a person who detests violence, war, weapons, killings…etc

I am sick to
death with war and violence

And I wish
what I have seen and what my people had seen on nobody.

 Centuries
of imperialism, and illiteracy followed by the brutal uprooting of a whole
nation from their homeland in order to give it away to people from other parts
of the world just because of their Jewish-ness, and to free the European’s mind
of the guilt of the holocaust (which we –Muslims and Palestinians- had nothing
to do with, but ended up having to pay the price for Europe’s crimes)

 Year
after year, decade after decade of injustice towards the Palestinians, accompanied
by unequivocal support from USA and Europe to the Zionist entity, led the
Muslims to resent the hypocritical policies of the Western world.

This blind
support of the Zionists was/ is perceived by Muslims as an act of aggression
and grave injustice.

Yet those
fundamental basic facts are not represented to you, what you led to believe is
that Muslims hate your freedom, your democracy, they are jealous of your way of
life, and they hate peace… what a load of nonsense!!!

Muslims feel oppressed
and persecuted by YOUR government, its unjust policies, its unconditional
support of the terrorist zionist regime and its criminal wars and aggression

 They
feel that justice had been denied to them, and that they have been constantly
under attack.

Exposed to so
much injustice and oppression it is only natural that people would have
resentments and would look for ways to liberate themselves from oppression and
modern slavery, which is precisely the case in many Muslim countries nowadays.

 And instead
of trying to right the wrongs you’ve done over decades of oppression and
injustice, what do you do?

You go yet
again and attack more Muslim countries; you bomb Afghanistan and Iraq reducing
them to rubble! And go on to threaten Iran with nukes!

You kill over
a million more!

And what is
more ridiculous is that you are doing so whilst claiming that you’re doing it
for the sake of liberating us from our backwardness, ignorance, and our
fanatics…

 What
are you thinking? Do you think we are idiots?

 We are
sick to death with your interference in our lands, and our countries

We are sick
to death with your domination and your attitude of superiority towards us and
the rest of the world.

We are sick
to death of you trying to impose on us your ways, your thinking, your problems
and your solutions.

Imperialism
has no room in the future of our world, and most certainly, that must include
thought imperialism.

WE WANT TO BE
FREE   
 

We want to be
free in our homelands

We want to be
able to exercise our rights to choose our representatives and our governments

We want our
human rights that enable live peacefully and with dignity with no threat of
bombing or ethnic cleansing

We want our
right to go home and not to live forever as refugees

We want our
right to believe in God or not to believe if we so wish to

We want our
right to be equal human beings with equal value to our lives

We want to be
free to solve the ills of our societies in our own ways not by copy-pasting
your experiences and your solutions.

 

 It’s
not good enough to try to justify the horrors that you’ve inflected and still
inflecting upon us, by dehumanizing us and belittling our faith. Period

 Where
to go from there?

Yes indeed,
where to go from there?

Is there a
way out?

As an
optimist, yes of course there is always a way out:

To begin
with, you must start with opening your hearts and minds to see us as equal
human beings, worthy of life, love, and freedom.

 Remove
your prejudice against us, and with sincere efforts open dialogues with us, not
to tell us what should we do or how should we think, or whom to elect as our
leaders, but to listen to us as your equals in humanity. A dialogue is a two
way system.

It’s also
good to start educating yourselves a bit more about us, not taking your
information from Hollywood but from us and our authentic sources.

 We have
so much to tell you, so much to share, so much good we can offer you and the
world.

And that is
not exaggeration; that is simply the truth. Because we are humans just like
you. We all have so much to offer the world.

 

May I give
some suggestion towards a solution?

 Why not
end your occupation of our lands?

Why not stop
supporting those puppet regime and dictators your successive governments have
forces upon Arabs for the sake of “Nation Building” which is the most
heinous word one can imagine, and why not continuing by accepting our FREELY
elected representatives, whom we chose through democracy ?

 Why not
visit and even come and live in Muslim countries without your army uniform, and
without offering your bombs and missiles as gifts?

Why not drop
your arms and come to us with open arms rather than coming carrying machine
guns and riding offensive tanks?

Instead of
pushing like crazy towards Armageddon; why not gently, lovingly, tenderly and
with compassion, why not embrace a world of justice, tolerance and respect, as
Jesus “peace be upon him” would’ve done if he was alive today?

 Why not
attentively listen to each other? Why not dream and work for a more peaceful
world built upon diversity and richness of multiplicity, a world where humanity
is celebrated and variety is rejoiced, a world where all are respected, where
all are free to think, to believe, and to live their own way without infringing
on each other, or imposing our ways upon each other?

As of now,
the world already can see that the American dream is a nightmare, your
s-elected and corrupt governments have made your country the most loathed
country, and they have robbed you exactly as they robbed those “Arabs out
there”

If you look
more vigilantly, more attentively, and closer to home, you will find the REAL
terrorist worthy of your alarm and disgust, are the ones amongst your midst,
ruling your country, robbing your resources, thriving on your poverty,
rejoicing your misery.

So why not
transform this mad nightmare and ideologically driven devastation, back into a
dream…. a reality?

 

Who is there?

Oh
human

Can’t you
see!

I am
precisely like you

I don’t like
being humiliated

I am no one’s
doormat

I’m person in
my own right

 

When I was
born

I was born
innocent

Happy and
free

 And I
want to live

A normal life

With dignity

Wouldn’t you?

 I
realise there is a dawn

Waiting to be
born

And that…
after hardship… passes away

Ease will
come to life… very soon

 But…
they’ve inflected so much

Pain and
cruelty

Upon this
little girl

And upon her
homeland

 

The world is
watching

Eyes open
wide

In
bewilderment

And disbelief

“What we are watching

Is a fiction
movie

It’s not
really true”

 

While in
exile

Puzzled… I
agonize

Wiping tears
off my saddened face

Searching
around

Any one
there?

 

Looking up…
into sky

Did You hear
my cries?

Did You
witness the crime?

 

Suddenly

Knock… knock

A gentle tap

 Yes,
coming 

Who is there?

Hope is here  

Smiling at my
heart

Standing by
my door  

Hard Talk


Hard talk


Zionists occupiers… Heed my call

Like
most people, I do believe in dialogue and civilized coexistence, like
most people I long to live in dignity and freedom in my homeland, like
most people I yearn for peace and justice for every human, like most
people I like to foster loving and trusting relationships with all
decent individuals; however, our problem with the Zionist occupiers is
not about hate and distrust as they like to believe, it’s not about
security as they constantly declare, nor is it about dialogue or lack of
it thereof!

Our problem with them is not confined to the many
aspects of their occupation, human right abuses, checkpoints, walls,
collective punishment and assassinations.

The origin of our
problem is as profound as a the roots of a fig tree, buried deep and
covered up with piles of dishonesty and deceit, yet its fruits has the
pungent taste of supremacy, arrogance, racism, dehumanization, theft,
and war crimes, and no amount of fig tree leaves could conceal or
beautify.

So, to unearth the core of the problem and spell the
truth-out loud and clear, I am going to direct my words towards the
Zionists of all shades and affiliations.
Furthermore, I am going to
be to honest and blunt here; as the catastrophic situation that they
have created does not stomach glossing over any longer

Zionist occupiers:

I must
warn you; that what I am going to say is not going to be very pleasant,
it will taste as bitter as the chilling years of your occupation, as
cold as the barren roots of our uprooted olive trees, and as sour as the
dry lips of dying babies at your military checkpoints.

My words
will be parched, choking and hard to swallow; it will be as rigid and
impervious as the cement of your apartheid wall

My words will
smell of tear gas and burning flesh of infants while cuddled in their
mothers’ arms after an air raid

My words will be burning hot like
a bullet penetrating the head of a little boy as he picked a stone to
throw at his oppressor

My words will be sizzling with blazing
fire like the one ton bomb dropped from afar at a neighbourhood of
sleeping women and children

My words will be gushing causing
excruciating pain and discomfort because it stems from the depth of my
wounded, distressed and agonised soul that was tormented by your people
for the entirety of my existence.

So
Zionist occupiers heed my words
;

Our problem with you is
not a “conflict” between two warring parties, who are similarly wrong
and equally guilty as you shamelessly often describe… NO… NO… NO

The
problem is one of aggression, oppression, colonization, theft, and
occupation on your side, and one of being oppressed, exploited, and
occupied on our side.

It’s one is of a crime of theft of a whole
country and the ethnic cleansing of a whole nation by your people on the
one hand and a displaced and dominated population on the other

It’s
one of a CRIMINAL THIEF and a DISPOSSESSED VICTIM

To equate the
two is nothing but an act of deception and a manifestation of moral
bankruptcy.

A whole lot of your people came from ALL over the
world, stole our homeland, dispossessed and expelled us, took over our
homes and farms, destroyed our villages and history, occupied our
country, oppressed those who stayed behind, killed and maimed who dared
to demand their rights or attempted to assert their humanity, demonized
and subjugated us to a racist, bigoted and ruthless set of laws that
don’t apply to yourselves; then you come with chilling cold-heartedness
and assert that both parties are equally guilty!!

Which planet
are you living on?
By what principles do you abide?
What ethics do
you follow?

Have you ever questioned the morality of your
actions as multinationals who gave themselves the liberty to come to our
homeland -which I am denied the right to live in- take it over by
violence and bloodshed, then settle there on the ruins of the villages
you’ve annihilated, dwelling in the homes of some dispossessed
Palestinians, for no other justifications than the dominance of your
Jewishness and the fact that we are not Jews?

Does that not smell
of rotten racism, arrogance and supremacy to your clogged-up
conscience?

The only crime that our people committed is that they
existed on the land of their ancestors which you proclaimed as a God
given-right to Jews only.

Your people have destroyed our culture,
denied our existence as human beings, treated us for four generation
with sheer cruelty, ruthlessness and contempt, and subjugated us to
inconceivable savagery and humiliation, and denied us even the right to
defend ourselves on our stolen Palestine under the pretext of
“terrorism”

On top of all that your people have lied and lied,
until they believed their own lies, you managed to brainwash yourselves
with packs of cover-ups and masks of reality until truth became so blur
and obscured, so much so that most of your people refuse even to
acknowledge their own crimes of theft of a whole country and disposition
of a whole nation

You stole the land of our ancestors and
forefathers under the claim that some few thousands years back in
history, some people who followed your religion have lived there, and
apparently secured a contract with God affirming the eternal ownership
of this land

How dare you give yourselves these abhorrent
privileges of taking over someone’s home and homeland just because you
belong to a particular faith?

What does an American Jew, a
Russian Jew, an African Jew, a Japanese Jew, an Indian Jew or a German
Jew has anything to do with the Land of Palestine?

If you think
we are some kind of brainless retarded human beings who lack your
“intelligence”, “emotions” and “morality” and who would just disregard
what happened to them sixty years ago, and who would be happy to live as
your inferiors in their own homeland; you better think again

We
are sick and tired of witnessing your crimes for decades on end
We
are sick and tired of your deception, false claims and the pretence of
innocence and victim-hood
We are sick and tired of your orchestrated
peace processes and leading-no-where road-maps

What is needed at
this stage is not dialogue and reconciliation, what is most urgently
needed is to STOP ALL your incessant ugly racism, supremacy, aggression
and assault, to put a halt to your crimes, and to take a serious look in
the mirror as a whole “population” and see what monsters have you
become!

You need to address within your immoral and utterly sick
society the obscene injustices you’ve inflected upon us
You need to
deal with the hideous, corrupt, aggressive, militarized and wicked
society that you have become

Before worrying about hate and
distrust that engulfs you, you aught to be worrying about the crimes of
your people and the injustices they have committed -and still
committing- and how to facilitate for justice to run its course, and how
to restore back the rights of millions that you have violated.

That
requires an inner reflection of you as a whole people, it requires an
honest and sincere look within yourselves, serious questioning of the
“history” that you were taught, a bursting of the bubble that you are
living in, it requires that you stop all your acts of aggression, theft
of land, humiliation, murder, and destruction of our community, and
above all, it requires that you step down from the high ground that you
placed yourselves on, and be prepared to GIVE UP ALL the privileges that
you have bestowed upon yourselves by the “virtue” of your Jewishness!

It
also requires restoring our rights back including the right of return
of all refugees, AND the compensation to ALL those who suffered from
your Frankenstein creation of the racist Zionist entity.

To those
blood-soaked criminals who come frothing with fake words of peace but
get incensed and infuriated when they hear the word justice, I would
say:

Masters of lies and
dishonesty

I would like to see you talking to the Nazis
who abused you without asking them to acknowledge their crimes

I
would like to see how you respond to those who deny the holocaust

I
would like to see you turning a blind eye to Hitler’s crimes and moving
forward without asking for justice or compensation

Masters of terror and deceit

How
do you want us to move on with out YOU acknowledging your crimes of
theft, ethnic cleansing and genocide, yet you demand that the whole
world acknowledges the crimes of Hitler against you?

Masters of arrogance and conceit

How
could you deny our Catastrophe and your responsibility for it, yet
insist and make sure that anyone who even doubts (let alone denies) the
holocaust or the number six millions has to pay severely by imprisonment
and loss of livelihood and even life?

Masters of mischief and evil doing

God
had sent you many warnings; that you do not transgress or do mischief
in the land, but your arrogance, self interest, greed and supremacy are
blinding you from seeing the evil you are doing

Instead of
acknowledging your crimes and establishing justice, you are still in a
state of total denial, carried away with more crimes, more lies, and
suppression of truth

Instead of repentance and accepting that you
have wronged us, you try to silence our faint voices causing more
deception, concealing the truth and sinking deeply in the abyss of
immorality and wickedness

Your Jewishness, your self
interest, your love of material gains and you drunkenness by power is
what you worship now not the God of goodness, peace and justice

My
warning to you now is the same warning given to your ancestors by many
prophets and prophetic voices:

You are descending deeper in the
hole that you dug for yourselves by your evil deeds, your denial of
truth, and by your inability to ask for forgiveness

The crimes
that you have committed against us are indeed painful and agonizing, but
it’s only done against our physical bodies, our souls are out of your
reach and forever intact; however, it’s your own souls that you are
disfiguring and destroying, if only you knew

Unfortunate, pitiable and deceived souls

You
have lost your humanity and killed your own souls if only you could see

Unless
and until you acknowledge your crimes and correct the wrongs you have
committed there will be a dark bleak and desolate future awaiting for
you

And this is not a threat; it is a promise

Mischief makers

They cry
peace, but what they mean is war; they scream freedom but what they mean
is enslavement; they shout democracy but what they mean is democracy
for their own kind.

The Quran describes such people whose words
contradict their deeds:

“And when it is said unto them: Make not
mischief in the earth, they say: We are peacemakers only. Are not they
indeed the mischief-makers? But they perceive not. (2:11-12)”

WARNING

“And We gave (Clear)
Warning to the Children of Israel in the Scripture, that twice would
they do mischief on the earth and will become tyrants and behave
insolently with extreme arrogance.” (17:4)

“When the first of the
warnings came to pass, We sent against you Our servants of mighty
prowess: They entered the very inmost parts of your homes; and it was a
warning (completely) fulfilled.” (17:5)

“Afterwards, we will give
you a turn over them, and will grant you an increase of wealth and
children; we will give you the upper hand.” (17:6)

If you do good, it will be for your own
benefit
, but if you do evil, it
will be against your souls.
When the prophecy of your second
transgression will come to pass, sadness will cover your faces. They
(your enemies) will enter the mosque as they did the first time, they
will wipe out all the gains you had accomplished.” (17:7)

“It may
be that your Lord will have mercy on you, but if you revert to
transgression, we will counter with retribution. We have designated hell
as a final abode for those who conceal the truth.” (17:8)

The
ONLY thing that could save you -arrogant zionists- from a bleak and
painful future is to reverse your evil ways of oppression, arrogance and
greed, and join the civilized world and behave like normal human beings
with justice and compassion

But
mischief makers perceive not

Hypocrites


“It is more important to be attractive than to be right"

 

Israel “brand” will magically smell sweeter

 

http://www.redress.cc/palestine/slittlewood20081018

 

 

 

Hypocrites

 

 

This open letter is an enumeration of guidelines toward a possible PEACE, it is destined to BLIND supporters of ZIONISM who blather "peace" while live in a state of denial

 

 

Those who attempt to beautify the ugly fascist racist face of zionism, who apply themselves as a dripping lipstick on the lips of a pig in a futile attempt to revamp its gruesome features

 

Those who delude themselves that if they use their lovey-dovey words they could disguise the true vile nature, the wicked chauvinistic ideology and incessant crimes of the monster of zion

 

Those who feel no shame in defending a disgraceful entity which happened to be established by terror and maintained by terror and continue to exist by terrorising those under its control

 

Those who act as a pathetic frayed fig leaf trying to conceal the obscenity and hideous disgrace of their state which was audaciously built upon the destruction of another nation

 

Those who ludicrously still marvel at and admire the naked emperor’s clothes when everyone in the world could see his pitiful nudity

 

Those who utter their disingenuous wishes to coexist in peace while choosing to live in a state of denial with their heads in the sand by refusing to acknowledge or remedy their injustices and wrong-doings

 

Those who refuse to listen to the voice of reason and the call of justice, and muffle each and every whisper that asks for it

 

Those who silence any call for GENUINE and TOTAL reconciliation and block every REAL endeavour that gives an honest diagnosis and point out to the genuine healing process which would lead to reconciliation

 

Those who attempt to deceive the world by accusing every defiant and decent individual who insists upon full restoration of rights, dignity and humanity of Palestinians, by accusing him/ her of extremism, fanaticism or support of terrorism

 

Those who endeavour to cover the rays of truth with a sieve of lies

 

Neither do I desire to waste my breath on, nor do I have the interest to talk to

They are worthy only of their karma

 

Collaborators of crime, who want to escape responsibility, keep the status quo, and dismiss the due rights of their prey under the disguise of nonsensical words like:

 

"New israel wants peace"

“We must accept facts on the ground”

 “We must not go back in time”

 “We must look forward to the future”

 

What future, you hypocrites?

 

What good is a future built upon denied massacres and genocide?

What good is a future built upon incessant theft and lies?

What good is a future, in which the criminals would neither acknowledge their wrong doings nor have the desire to remedy the wounds of their injured victims

 

What is the meaning of words when actions counteract?

Have they never came across the saying “Actions speaks louder than words”?

 

Over the past sixty years you’ve had your say and you did what you chose to do,

 

And now,

 

Well, guess what?

 

It’s time for us to speak and for YOU to LISTEN to us and HEAR our say:

 

you are not welcome in our stolen land of Palestine with your existing mentality

 

Before we accept you and welcome you as guests and as our brothers and sisters in our land that you have stolen:

 

Go

 

Repent

 

Wash the blood off your hands

And weep

 

Weep the souls of the little ones you’ve murdered

 

Weep the innocent villages you’ve destroyed

 

Weep the blessed olive trees you’ve uprooted

 

Weep the tears of little girls you’ve orphaned

 

Weep the mutilated bodies of small boys you’ve devastated

 

Weep the tens of thousands of youth you’ve disabled

 

Weep the tens of thousands of homes you demolished

 

Weep the millions of aching hearts of refugees you’ve created

 

Weep the soil of the Holy Land you’ve polluted

 

Weep the stream waters and ancient wells you’ve poisoned

 

Weep the hundreds of thousands of bodies you’ve tortured

 

Weep the hills and orchards you’ve disfigured

 

Weep the alleyways you’ve dissected

 

Weep the landscape you’ve cut to pieces

 

Weep the towns you’ve bombed to oblivion

 

Weep the dignified women you’ve dishonoured

 

Weep the enduring elderly you’ve humiliated

 

Weep the infants you prevented from getting to hospitals

 

Weep the laughter and giggles of tiny ones you’ve muted

 

Weep the scents of herbs and blossoms you’ve suffocated

 

Weep the farms you’ve destroyed and confiscated

 

Weep the culture of embroidery, humus and falafel you’ve robbed and claimed 

 

Weep the prophets’ messages you’ve abused and defiled

 

Weep the Divine Guidance you’ve corrupted

 

Weep the Ten Commandments you’ve violated

 

 

 

And when you weep long enough, hard enough and sincerely enough, you will discover that you don’t need to come to us begging us to talk to you or to forgive you, you won’t need to go around the web scattering, boasting and blathering about peace

 

 Because if and when your repentance is genuine it will automatically show in your actions

 

You will know then what you have to do and how to do it, to be forgiven

 

And then and only then, you WILL find “peace” that you allegedly seek

Open Letter to President Mahmoud Abbas on behalf of Palestinian Refugee Organizations

We pass the keys of our occupied homes to our children, generation after generation, until the day of our RETURN

With each day that passes by, our exile decreases by one day, and our return becomes a day closer

 
==================================================================

The following letter was presented to President Mahmoud Abbas’s office on behalf of 78 Palestinian organizations on Wednesday September 22, 2008. Note that ALL Palestinian political factions have signed on as well.

This is a clear message that every zionist should bear in mind before feeling jubilant that they could achieve peace without OUR RIGHT OF RETURN being FULLY implemented

It’s also a clear message to those principled and moral Jewish people who reside in Occupied Palestine now and who sincerely seek peace and justice, it’s a message that they should not ignore, but rather embrace and take very seriously indeed if they truly hope for a better future for all

Please distribute widely.

Re: The Rights of Palestinian Refugees and the Final Status Negotiations

Dear Mr. President,

Greetings of Return

We, the undersigned Palestinian refugee organizations, civil society movements and institutions in the Palestinian homeland and in exile are national organizations working to defend the right of return. We appeal to you now because we are convinced that the alignment of the official Palestinian position and the position of the Palestinian people with regards to the final status negotiation issues is of the highest priority. Foremost among these issues is the cause of the Palestinian refugees.

We are convinced that the alignment of popular and official positions is the main guarantee of a strong Palestinian position in the current negotiation process, which is taking place in a local, regional and global context that jeopardizes the national rights of the Palestinian people. In this context, we are concerned in particular about the rights of Palestinian refugees and internally displaced persons to return to their original lands and properties, restitution of their homes, lands and properties and compensation for damages incurred over the past 60 years. Based on the fact that all of these rights are guaranteed under international law, and based on our awareness of the enormous pressures faced by Palestinian negotiators and the tactics of negotiations, such as secrecy with regards to the negotiation proceedings, we call upon you to adopt a negotiation strategy that is based on openness with the entirety of the Palestinian people – irrespective of their current place of residence – regarding all aspects and details of the negotiation process. Implementation of the Palestinian refugees’ right of return was and continues to be the main purpose for which the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO) was established, a purpose which forms the central pillar of the PLO’s legitimacy as the sole legitimate representative of the Palestinian people. Transparency and candidness of our representatives with all sectors of our society will guarantee that our rights are best defended, and strengthen our position in the face of enormous pressures.

It has been clear at all stages of the negotiations that this process aims to eliminate the core issue of the Arab/Palestinian struggle for freedom and justice: the Palestinian refugees and their rights of return and restitution. In fact, elimination of these central Palestinian/Arab demands form the center-piece of both Israeli and US policies. It is also no secret that during the so-called “Oslo Peace Process” these policies have employed insidious tactics in order to nullify these rights altogether. Such tactics include attempts to substitute the return and restitution of the refugees with monetary compensation; to reduce the number of those entitled to exercise these rights from over 7 million Palestinian refugees and internally displaced persons to a tiny minority, including so-called “hardship cases” that would be arbitrarily defined by Israel; to suggest that the refugees return to homes located in the areas administered by the Palestinian Authority; and other humiliating “trade offs” whereby Palestinians are expected to surrender the right of refugees to return to homes, lands and properties of origin in exchange for other rights and demands, such as self-determination, borders, the reclamation of Jerusalem and removal of the illegal settlement-colonies. The Palestinian leadership has rejected such degrading bargaining tactics in previous negotiations, notably those known as the second Camp David summit and the Clinton initiative. The late President Yasser Arafat rejected these tactics, and he was made to pay for that with his liberty and his life.

Whereas the rights of return, restitution and compensation are enshrined in international law and specifically affirmed in UN General Assembly Resolution 194 and UN Security Council Resolution 237;

Whereas we see that increasing US pressure aims to force Palestinian negotiators to agree to an obscure framework for a solution that is to be achieved by any means and at the soonest date, and that such a framework is largely for internal US consumption in the context of a US Presidential election;

Whereas it has become clear that the US administration is working on other fronts to market its obscure framework for a solution in the September 2008 session of the UN General Assembly;

Whereas we realize, as a result of our movement’s long and difficult experience with Israeli politics, that Israeli political actors seek to solve the internal Israeli political crisis by venting destruction on the Palestinian front through various policies and practices, all of which work to entrench Israeli occupation, colonialism, and apartheid, and aim to attain international recognition of Israel as a ‘Jewish State;’

Whereas Western and Israeli election platforms must not be employed to put pressure on the Palestinian negotiators, who should in no way be a party to the political maneuvers of US and Israeli political candidates, particularly in order to protect the legality, legitimacy, and sanctity of Palestinian national rights regardless of who emerges victorious in foreign elections;

Whereas we perceive the retreat of the once principled European position, and the transformation of this position into one that conforms to the US policy of total complicity and support for Israel;

Whereas we clearly see the weakness and inability of the Arab countries to take action or play any effective role;

Whereas we witness the sharp, painful and unprecedented deterioration in the internal Palestinian political arena;

Whereas it has become plain and obvious that powerful external pressures aim to annul Palestinian refugee rights, particularly the right to return to their original lands and properties and the restitution of these lands and properties;

Whereas Israel and the US, according to Israeli officials, are intensifying their efforts to reach a framework for a solution that is acceptable to both Israel and the US and will be viable regardless of the ruling party;

Whereas the primary measure of the legitimacy of any solution remains the extent to which it will lead to the exercise of the right of self-determination by the Palestinian people, including foremost the right of Palestinian refugees to choose to return to their original homes and lands regardless of their current place of refuge,

We approach you with this statement based on our strong desire to chart a way forward that is built on the highest levels of clarity and candidness with the Palestinian people; a way forward that aims to strengthen the Palestinian position in this sensitive stage of the Palestinian struggle; a way forward that ensures that any framework for a solution will include the following principles in clear and immutable language :

The rights of Palestinian refugees and internally displaced persons to return, restitution and compensation are fundamental rights under international law and relevant UN resolutions – particularly UN General Assembly Resolution 194 and UN Security Council Resolution 237. The content of these rights is non-negotiable irrespective of the manner in which they will be exercised;
The right of return is an individual right held by every Palestinian refugee and internally displaced person. This right is passed on from one generation to the next, based on the individual’s choice on whether or not to return, an inalienable and indivisible right, and not affected by any bilateral, multilateral, or international treaty or agreement. Any such agreement must respect the fundamental precepts and principles of international law;
The right of Palestinian refugees and internally displaced persons to return is a collective right that is not limited to one group or another, and it is an integral part of the Palestinian right of self-determination;
The right of Palestinian refugees and internally displaced persons to return is not subject to referendum.

May you remain steadfast in our struggle for freedom and dignity

You think you could defeat my will to be?!


 

You think you could defeat my will to be?! 

 

To those zionists thieves and murderers who rattle on about peace but have deaf ears to the word JUSTICE

 

They blather about understanding, but are blinded to their crimes of theft, violence and superiority that thwart any hope of reconciliation.

 

   

Those who claim that peace can be achieved without stopping their apartheid, human right abuses, supremacy, arrogance, oppression and occupation

 

Pay attention mouthpieces of Hasbara lies and deceit

 

WHEN I, along with the seven million Palestinian refugees are allowed to return back home

 

AND when all the refugees are compensated for all the years of agony in exile

 

AND when you bring to an end all forms of your aggression, violence, and terror and land theft

 

AND when you release ALL Palestinian abductees

 

AND when you give back all the land stolen from us by the might of your guns

 

AND when you freeze the illegal flood of Jewish colonizers who deluge from all over the world

 

AND when you dismantle all the illegal colonies

 

AND when you terminate all your stock of arms and WMS

 

 THEN and ONLY then you could come to talk to us about peace and about the future.

 

But until then, we reserve the right to resist your oppression and crimes until you -willingly or unwillingly- change your evil ways and stop your terror and theft.

 

And btw you wouldn’t be doing us a favour if and when you stop your terror, and when and if you give us our land and our rights back

 

It’s the least you could do to save your disfigured souls

 

The favour is not to us at all, but rather to your poor scorched souls that you managed to allow it to sink so low in wickedness, corruption and inhumanity by acts of theft, terror and with lies as the icing on the cake to justify your ugly crimes

  

Despite all the armaments, arsenal and WMD that you have, all of this might you brag about, is absolutely zilch in our eyes; simply because it’s artificial, it’s an outer superficial shell that masks your pathetic, scrawny and shaky reality.

It is not authentic strength

That’s why when I address you, I look through this camouflage, I see only your essence; feeble weak, dependent, spineless who hide behind guns and tanks to conceal your frail entity

Yet on the other hand, we have nothing of the “impressive” weapons that you possess; but we feel much more powerful, even our little ones, and that’s because our strength -that you will never defeat- is genuine, it comes from within

The equation is simple:

you have the MIGHT but we have the RIGHT,

 And

RIGHT is greater than MIGHT


And

 The light of truth is more potent than the gloom of falsehood


That’s why we need no hasbara; the truth flows from our hearts to our lips to people’s hearts like a stream; powerful, pure and simple

We have nothing to hide, for our conscience is clear

Nothing to fear, for our inner strength is real

 

Your threats, aggression and lies are hollow

They mean NOTHING to us

 

Truth and lies

Lies
like to be groomed

To
be prepared in advance

Artificially
manufactured

Laughable,
not in a funny way

No amount of make-up can hide its ugly
face

No trimming or adding can make it flow in
lucidity

Still-born,
incoherent, pitiable and frail

Unpleasant
to the ear as much to the heart

TRUTH
however, is spontaneous

Honest, eloquent and natural

It has a power of its own

The glory of truth has the qualities of
light

No amount of darkness could kill or
obscure

Delicate, sublime, inspiring and pure

Breathtaking
with its splendour

Like
a waterfall;

It
flows gracefully from the heart

Needs
no training for her to shine

Powerful,
relentless, elegant and beautiful

Alhamdulillah

 

 

Do this you
lose….. Do that I win

 


No fear in
my heart

 

 

You could
imprison me!

 

With that
you ONLY imprison my physical body

My joyful soul
you cannot restrain

Out of your
reach

Forever FREE

Floating in
contentment, tranquillity and peace

Watching
your despondent captive souls

Behind bars
of your aggression and hostility

Walls of
your guilt, fear and insecurity

 

 

You could
kill me!

 

But my
poetry is unassailable

The minds of
many already impregnated with my words

As soon as
you make me a martyr

Those seeds
would be infused with life

 

Hubs of love
 
 

Like rays of
sunshine… warm… tender… invigorating

Giving birth
to a jubilant dawn

 

Hubs of love
 
 

Like summer
rain… pure… cleansing… revitalizing

 
Gushing
through hearts and minds

 

Hubs of love
 

They’d bloom
and multiply

Budding…
buoyant hope

Blossoming… verve and
splendour


 

 

 

No escape

 

In my heart dwells the pain of the oppressed

Rivers of their wounds pour down

Drenching the ocean of my sorrow

 

I am the voice of the voiceless

The howl of little ones as they fade away

 

My whispers shoot like bullets

In the ears of the wicked

My words explodes

Before his eyes

Muting his lies

 

He looks away

Pretending not to see

Not to hear

My murmurs pierce his bubble

My tortured shadow follows

No escape

 

He runs to bed

Covers his head

Sleep might rid him of me

 

My chopped limps chase his dream

He drowns in my tears

In my blood

Unable to breathe

Unable to cry

No escape

 

Time passes

…………………

……………………

……………………

 Then he dies

……………………

…………………….

…………………….

Only to be greeted with my smile

He’d hoped he’d never see

As he was chained and dragged away

To meet his deeds

 

No escape

Wolves in sheep clothing

Wolves in sheep clothing

 

Yesterday (19 August 08), I joined the very ominous sinister site “mepeace” using the name Iman (above photo); I posted one link to the film “The Iron Wall” and only 10 pictures!!

Within less than 15 hours I was totally banned, my IP was blocked, and I can’t access the site even to read!

 

Now, to those blood-soaked criminals who come frothing with fake words of peace but get incensed and infuriated when they hear the word justice, I would say:

 

Masters of lies and dishonesty

 

I would like to see you talking to the Nazis who abused you without asking them to acknowledge their crimes

 

I would like to see how you respond to those who deny the holocaust

 

I would like to see you turning a blind eye to Hitler’s crimes and moving forward without asking for justice or compensation

 

Masters of terror and deceit

 

How do you want us to move on with out YOU acknowledging your crimes of theft, ethnic cleansing and genocide, yet you demand that the whole world acknowledges the crimes of Hitler against you?

 

Masters of arrogance and conceit

 

How could you deny our Catastrophe and your responsibility for it, yet insist and make sure that anyone who even doubts (let alone denies) the holocaust or the number six millions has to pay severely by imprisonment and loss of livelihood and even life?

 

 

Masters of mischief and evil doing

 

God had sent you many warnings; that you do not transgress or do mischief in the land, but your arrogance, self interest, greed and supremacy are blinding you from seeing the evil you are doing

 

Instead of acknowledging your crimes and establishing justice, you are still in a state of total denial, carried away with more crimes, more lies, and suppression of truth

 

Instead of repentance and accepting that you have wronged us, you try to silence our faint voices causing more deception, concealing the truth and sinking deeply in the abyss of immorality and wickedness

 

 

Your Jewishness, your self interest, your love of material gains and you drunkenness by power is what you worship now not the God of goodness, peace and justice

 

My warning to you now is the same warning given to your ancestors by many prophets and prophetic voices:

 

You are descending deeper in the hole that you dug for yourselves by your evil deeds, your denial of truth, and by your inability to ask for forgiveness

 

The crimes that you have committed against us are indeed painful and agonizing, but it’s only done against our physical bodies, our souls are out of your reach and forever intact; however, it’s your own souls that you are disfiguring and destroying, if only you knew

 

Unfortunate, pitiable and deceived souls

 

You have lost your humanity and killed your own souls if only you could see

 

Unless and until you acknowledge your crimes and correct the wrongs you have committed there will be a dark bleak and desolate future awaiting for you

 

And this is a promise

 

Mischief makers

 

They cry peace, but what they mean is war; they scream freedom but what they mean is enslavement; they shout democracy but what they mean is democracy for their own kind.

 

The Quran describes such people whose words contradict their deeds:

 

And when it is said unto them: Make not mischief in the earth, they say: We are peacemakers only. Are not they indeed the mischief-makers? But they perceive not. (2:11-12)”

 

 

WARNING

 

“And We gave (Clear) Warning to the Children of Israel in the Scripture, that twice would they do mischief on the earth and will become tyrants and behave insolently with extreme arrogance.” (17:4)

 

“When the first of the warnings came to pass, We sent against you Our servants of mighty prowess: They entered the very inmost parts of your homes; and it was a warning (completely) fulfilled.” (17:5)

 

“Afterwards, we will give you a turn over them, and will grant you an increase of wealth and children; we will give you the upper hand.” (17:6)

 

If you do good, it will be for your own benefit, but if you do evil, it will be against your souls. When the prophecy of your second transgression will come to pass, sadness will cover your faces. They (your enemies) will enter the mosque as they did the first time, they will wipe out all the gains you had accomplished.” (17:7)

 

“It may be that your Lord will have mercy on you, but if you revert to transgression, we will counter with retribution. We have designated hell as a final abode for those who conceal the truth.” (17:8)

 

 

The ONLY thing that could save you -arrogant zionists- from a bleak and painful future is to reverse your evil ways of oppression, arrogance and greed, and act like civilized human beings, with justice and compassion

 

But mischief makers perceive not
