It is because I am a Jew and once had a dream of a different Israel that I speak out against the cruelty bestowed on the Palestinian population and the beauty that was their land and culture. Oh god how could this have happened? I so strongly believe that Jews had the moral obligation to not oppress as they were once oppressed. It did not happen.
W H Auden wrote this timely poem.
September 1, 1939
Now I and the public know What all school children learn Those to whom evil is done Do evil in return.”
Israel! You have risen from The ashes of the holocaust To become your own enemy.
Israel! You should have learned so well Man’s inhumanity to man Is hell.
Palestine! We are your brothers and sisters.
May this nightmare end.
As-Salaamu Alaykum Lillian
