Only in PalestineNahida Izzat Salem-News.com
In Palestine, faith is ocean-deep; Patience knows no boundaries; Sincerity soft-tactile and hope... sky-wide...
(LONDON) - Again our writer and poet Nahida Izzat delivers a combination of words and images that defy our expectations, humble us in their reality, and motivate us in their meaning.
Children and women facing down heavily armed Israeli Defence Forces; fighting without weapons an enemy intent on killing them all with few exceptions; a cold hearted, poorly trained band of thugs who sickeningly call themselves 'the most moral army' and that alone makes me so committed to exposing their war crimes, that are all taking place by design...
What does one do when they know they are confronted by a cold blooded killer that never has to stand trial when accused of crimes against humanity?
The IDF's mission, is to maintain security of Israelis at the expense of the Palestinians who are afforded little in the way of human rights or justice by the Zionist apartheid war machine.
The non-violent movement that swept Palestine several years ago has done little good. The end of killing only meant that the Israelis stopped dying, the Palestinians have suffered a heightened degree of ethnic cleansing since they laid their weapons down.
When people like Mitt Romney open their dirty scummy lying mouths and accuse these victims of 63 gruesome years of Israeli war crimes of being against peace, it makes me want to give my life for their cause. It is that exact type of lie that has been at the basis of all of the unrest and deaths.
The land is called Palestine, just because the Israelis stole it changes squat. There is no such thing as a legitimate Israel, all of the land it claims is Palestine and there not a damned thing they can ever do to change it.
In Palestine, good and evil assemble
In stark contrast
An epitome of creation
In Palestine, heroism meets malice head on
No concealment, no pretence
In Palestine, kindness confronts bitterness
Mercy grows defiant
“Never forget and never forgive” mantra is brought to shame
In Palestine, walls all around
Yet, sitting on the fence is no longer an option
One must choose a camp
In Palestine, from prophetic schools saints and angels graduate
Yet, out of sorcery spells fiends and devils are frothed into being
In Palestine, hatred is a chain, millennia old
Pulling to Hell of depravity
Beasts who promote
In Palestine, endurance is a meadow, blossoming through parched soil
Painting the horizon
Tears of elation and whispers of devotion
In Palestine, tenderness is a melody, sung by Gaza shores
Growing in abundance, filling hearts and minds
Dancing at twilight, healing girls and boys
In Palestine, love is a rainbow, shimmering above
Lifting to Heavenly splendour
Sublime nostalgic souls
In Palestine, faith is ocean-deep
Patience knows no boundaries
Sincerity soft-tactile and hope... sky-wide
In Palestine, sinners are repentant
The pious clothed in modesty and lovers intertwined
In Palestine, sisters made queens, brothers are protectors
Children are adored, fathers held up high
but under mothers' feet Paradise is laid down
In Palestine, the hungry is fed, the lonely is embraced
The lost will be guided and the searching will find
Nahida Izzat is a Jerusalem-born Palestinian refugee who has lived in exile for over forty two years, after being forced to leave her homeland at the tender age of seven in 1967, during the six-day war. She has a degree in mathematics, but art is one of her favorite pastimes. She loves hand-made things and so makes dolls, cards, and most of her own clothes. She also writes poetry, participates in written dialogues and believes in building bridges, not walls.
She started writing when her friends insisted she should write about her memories, experiences and feelings as a Palestinian.When she did it all came out sounding—she was told—like poetry! So she self-published two books: I Believe in Miracles and Palestine, The True Story.
Her dream is to return back home to a free and liberated Palestine.
