A Final Call (WARNING: CONTAINS SOME DISTURBING IMAGES)Poetry by Nahida Izzat Salem-News.com
Clocks are ticking - retrieve your conscience, come running...
You've dug yourselves a hole
You keep digging... Fools
The flood is behind you
Tears and blood and floating body parts
For those of you with hearts that see
Those who want to save themselves
Very little time left
Give up your guns
Give up your greed
Give up your arrogance
Give up your support of a doomed ideology
Face your demons
Climb down from your pedestal
Come begging for forgiveness
Without which redemption is no more
Shed off your delusions:
Your DNA is not "Jewish"
Your IQ is not “superior”
Your "spiritual leadership" is a sham
Your “chosen-ness”... Heh
Your “chosen-ness” is your biggest downfall
The call of all prophets:
Hear O Hear, Bani Israel
The darkest of your nights
Has been announced
Clocks are ticking . . .
Retrieve your conscience
You have been warned
The End Game is upon us
The day of your atonement is within sight
“To smile when confronted with the most severe oppression, is an act of Resistance rooted in unparalleled beauty.”
~ Jonathan Azaziah"And I, a Palestinian from occupied Palestine, refuse to share
my homeland with Zionist colonizers"
~ Reham Alhelsi
"Facts" do NOT need laws to enforce, validate or defend them, what they require is research to examine their narrative and correct it for better accuracy and understanding.
“When a man who is honestly mistaken hears the truth, he will either cease being mistaken, or cease being honest.”
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.
