I'm terrorized in my own land
And the blame is put on me.

But I will not rest, I shall never settle
For the injustice my people endure.
Palestine is OUR land and there we'll remain
Until the day OUR homeland is secure.

And if that time shall never come,
Then we will never see a day of peace.
I will not be thrown from my own home,
Nor will fight for justice cease.

Eye to Eye: A Palestinian talking to Americans

By Gihad Ali


Look into my eyes
And tell me what you see
You don't see a damn thing,
'cause you can't, until you try to relate to me.

You're blinded by our differences.
My life makes no sense to you.
I'm the persecuted Palestinian.
You are the American red, white and blue.

Each day you wake in tranquility.
No fears to cross your eyes.
Each day I wake in gratitude.
Thanking God he let me rise.

You worry about your education
And the bills you have to pay.
I worry about my vulnerable life
And if I'll survive another day.

Your biggest fear is getting ticketed
As you cruise your Cadillac.
My fear is that the tank that just left
Will turn around and come back.

American, do you realize,
That the taxes that you pay
Feed the forces that traumatize
My every living day?

The bulldozers and the tanks,
The gases and the guns,
The bombs that fall outside my door,
All due to American funds.

Yet do you know the truth
Of where your money goes?
Do you let your media deceive your mind?
Is this a truth that no one knows?

You blame me for defending myself
Against the ways of Zionists
I'm terrorized in my own land
And I'm the terrorist?

You think that you know all about terrorism
But you don't know it the way I do.
So let me define the term for you.
And teach you what you thought you knew.

I've known terrorism for quite some time,
Fifty- four years and more.
It's the fruitless garden uprooted in my yard.
It's the bulldozer in front of my door.

Terrorism breathes the air I breathe.
It's the checkpoint on my way to school.
It's the curfew that jails me in my own home,
And the penalties of breaking that curfew rule.

Terrorism is the robbery of my land.
And the torture of my mother.
The imprisonment of my innocent father.
The bullet in my baby brother.

So American, don't tell me you know about
The things I feel and see.
I'm terrorized in my own land
And the blame is put on me.

But I will not rest, I shall never settle
For the injustice my people endure.
Palestine is OUR land and there we'll remain
Until the day OUR homeland is secure.

And if that time shall never come,
Then we will never see a day of peace.
I will not be thrown from my own home,
Nor will fight for justice cease.

And if I am killed, it will be Falasteen. (Palestine)
It's written on my breath.
So in your own patriotic words,
Give me liberty or give me death.

Think not that there are not American who do not look with distain at the heavy handed tactics of those who would dictate your liberty on thier terms. But as it takes two to fight, it takes two to make peace. Intolerance on both sides is the enemy of all.


Indeed so, John, thankyou for your comment and for reading this too. Semper Fidelis.

You are my kind of Human Being! THANK YOU for being you; a Straight forward, INFORMED and UNIVERSAL-kinda guy, who knows what Life demands from all of us in our Interactions with all Living Things around us; NO Exeptions/favoritism in this direction -or that, but ONE RULE APPLIES TO ALL.
You and I know that, that it what it takes for TRUE -as in Divine/Cosmic TRUTH to make Life tick at all - for ANYbody -EVEN for the Oppressors -regardless what time of History we look into/judge...regardless what group we look at through the pages of History...Same s--t repeted a million times!... untill one day enough many of us understand and dare to see all as ONE!... This is indeed a CONDITION of Mind that takes a lot of all those things YOU have: Genuine Education, truthful information and an OPEN HEART to ALL Life!
...and so is the flipside!.... A State of Mind!.... a very sick, inflamed by unlimited SELFISHNESS, justified with nothing but crapp; HOLLOW words; LIES, toboot! "Oh, When will they ever learn/When will they ever learn" ( "Where Have All The Flowers Gone" )

Thanks for the kind words, A-d, I do appreciate them very much and the fact that you have read this poem and understand. I would like to encourage you, and others, to visit the following link for a deeper understanding of The Founding Myths of Israeli Politics:

great site in its nakedness, revelaing old lies etc. Now I am only waiting for other Nation's Naked Dark Truths to come out into the daylight; like Turkey about their genoside on the Armenian People -with an apology. Americaabout thirtysome genociedes of small "Developing Countries. like Chile, Nicaragua, Vietnam etc etc... not to mention this very LAND we're on: the Americas; its Original Peoples deserve a recognition and HUGE apology from the Invaders! on an'on it goes! The lamest justifiaction out there would be" ahh well, other nations have done too!... Yes.... Far too many!... so that is NOT a viable excuse or a Cart Blanche to go and do more, now, is it?! Nope!
So many hurt by Man's cruelty to Man! How in the world did Mankind survive Itself this far!... that is still a mystery to me!
Like Alan Cohen's little Favorite Tune says: "There Is Healing When The Radiance of Love Replaces All Our Fears..." ALL peoples of Earth, on Earth, should just ask eachother's forgiveness and embrace eachother in a big Loving Apology Hug!... for... there IS healing when the radiance of Love replaces all our fears!

As innocent Jews fled the genocide in Europe and began arriving in "Palestine" in the 40's they were met with murderous violence by Palastinians who joined in the genocide.

When Israel was created by the UN in 1948, FIVE Arab nations immediately declared war upon Israel, but were unable to undo what God had done for the beleaguered Jews.

This unrelenting Arab genocide against the Jews has continued to this very day. Personally, I have little sympathy for the evil Arab Empire of Islam. If there is such a thing as a Satanic religion, it is most certainly ISALAM.

The Jews fight because the Arab world forces them to fight in order to survive in an anti-semitic world. The solution is simplicity itself -- Stop killing Jews and they will stop killing you back.

Take a look at a map of the Middle East. Notice that one tiny crescent of Jewish presence surrounded by many, many enormous Arab states. Just how much of the earth does Islam demand?

The world is big enough for all of us. In the end, only the peaceful will survive.

Wise up! Choose peace. I guarantee that Israel will stop defending itself when you lot cease your genocidal attacks upon her.


" When Israel was created by the UN in 1948..."

That says a lot. Do you know the meaning of "Avodah Zarah?" Did you ever think for a moment about the copyrighted term "Anti-Semitism?" Surely you must know that the so called Musliim are every bit a tool, a human capital,' if you will, of an age old quest to conquer the world and its' resources, including 'human capital,' by a relative handful of international 'financiers?'

The Arabs (actually means those who speak Arabic and doesn't refer to a race) are not all 'Shemiim." And the term 'Muslam' refers to one who is under the cloak of peace or, actually, fullness as in 'be all you can be.'

For the present 'state' of Israel we must look much deeper for answers than the projected facade with all its so called 'historical' accoutrement. Harakat al Muqawama al-Islamiya and their Izz al-Din al Qassam brigadas are getting their Qaddam from somewhere. Where is that? the Paris club of creditors?

A just and lasting world peace will not be garnered by any kind of Bolshevism. I'm sure you know that. And the real state of YiSRa-EL is a 'state' of mind.

In the meanwhile real human capital is being expended ('collateral' damage. Collateral? Whose?) on both sides of the wall but don't you think that it is a bit unfair? Try a molotov cocktail on for size. Molotov, Lenmin, Trotsky, Marx, and even (some say) Djubashvili and especially DeGeL Ha ADoM! Know what Shachar Ha Adom means? ;) Does your Hannukia have 8 or 9 branches? Thanks for your comments. ;)
