Today talking with my friend at the dorm , I used the word hate , I said I hate Israelis ,she replied saying "Hate" is a really big word O_O with this expression on her face (I love you alex ), but is it ?? I was really emotional since this issue is a sensitive one , I mean its not like this is something people experience everyday , how can you understand the feeling that Palestinians feel everyday when you never lost one of your friends in a bomb!! or got your relatives killed from an Israeli army!!
civilians are killed every day , reporters are killed everyday, until now I have relatives who live in Palestine , they are not having access to what is considered basic needs in the world, deprived from water , food , agriculture and everything , even deprived from living as a child, and then resistance to this situation , saying no to the occupation , saying no to the people who killed our moms , our sisters , to the people who destroyed and still destroying our culture , our lands , our country is considered terrorism !!!!
why is it considered patriot in other occupied countries and terrorism in the case of Palestine (lucky for me all the sensei agree with me on this , we are on the same page , maybe because they did a lot of fieldwork and actually lived with people who died from hunger , so maybe they understand) , maybe because we need a further deep recognition than the weak international law !! its just the matter of power , Iraq was destroyed and more countries will , its just a balance of power... no one cares about peace... no one really does ...peace is a nice word that doesn't exist in our world anymore , its just like a delusion..what peace , we never had peace in the history of human kind , this is sad, but this is also true...
I came to a realization that its not the Israelis that I really hate, its the state of Israel !
I mean ok its not a matter of co-existence with them, we lived with Jews and Christians before the occupation and we were totally fine with it, even in our Islamic history its forbidden to kill civilians , to disturb people and even its forbidden to burn a tree when you have a war with another country, but in Islam we have something "fight back the people who kills you" , I mean isn't that's natural! I mean even if you don't have a religion , this is what logic says , you defend yourself!!or else the enemy will kill you O_O
its not about co-existing with Israelis ,its about the refugees that was expelled from there land in order for them to exist!! does it even make sense , to come to a country and just kick the indigenous people just like that !! isn't it even fair ?? in what standards its fair ?
what about our right to return back to our country and origins!! this is not something that we will let go of ,as long as we have breath, we Palestinians , will go back, someday , we will...
its easy to take your information and believe all what you see and hear from the mass media ,its really easy,but what is happening in reality is far from what we learn in schools about love and hate, about peace and war ,if you never experienced something as ugly as war , or the loss of someone u really love then how can you know ...the answer for that is so simple , you don't !!
peace until the next post...
this is a poet if you are interested ^-^
I am an Arab
You have stolen the orchards of
And the land which I cultivated
Along with my children
And you left nothing for us
Except for these rocks…
So will the State take them
As it has been said?!
Write down on the top of the first page:
I do not hate people
Nor do I encroach
But if I become hungry
The usurper’s flesh will be my food
Of my hunger
And my anger!
From the poem Identity Card by Mahmoud Darwish, Palestinian poet.
