Perspective

How many of us are smarter than Albert Einstein and wiser than Martin Buber? These gentlemen warned us that Israel was a Nazi-like state. We ignored them, with calamitous consequences.

Before the Holocaust, only 3% of Jews supported the Zionist project, ethnic cleansing in Palestine. Nazism made Jews desperate, Zionists popular, its survivors cunning in the black arts of terror and genocide.

Hate had the last laugh. Hitler’s heritage, his Fourth Reich, lives on in Israel.

Einstein died, Israel joined the status quo, we forgot all about the refugees, until soldiers killing kids on the news woke us up.

We are eye-witnesses: the Nazi idea of racism and militarism marches on in occupied Palestine, crushing Muslims and Christians alike in the cradle of civilization.

Of course the Arabs fought back. They were invaded. But no one is calling to push the Jews into the sea now. Not every country is sadistic like Israel, where only murderers can be prime minister.

We must stand up for our faith, democratic pluralism, if it is to survive. People of all faiths must fairly share this land together, so the pendulum of violence may stop. But our government keeps pushing it by supporting the invaders, the racial supermen and over-killers. This cruelty has poisoned the entire Middle East, adding $80 billion a year to our defense budget.

Against any other such regime, we would have applied sanctions long ago. The least we must do is to cut off our $3 billion annual military aid to the Nazi state we created.

Black flows my pen

Black flows my pen

Though blood fills its shaft.

Though blood fills its shaft.

Red is indeed

A color to be read.

Martyrs’ death cries

Resound through the earth.

Write of wrongs with bitter tears

Etching shoah, nakba on the stones.

Each laddie fallen

Is a lost son to me

A small soul

Passing like a sigh

For what we will never be!

For what we will never be!

I would hasten after you, wee spirit

I would hasten after you, wee spirit

From this bazaar of crude fakes

If only I knew, where to?
