A Poem for Palestine


We the people of Palestine are the bricks, stone and mortar of our Nation.

We are its Earth, its moon, and its stars

We are its fruits, its Oranges, its Olive Trees, Cacti,Cedar trees and sweetcorn

We are its mountains, its hills, winding roads and river and gentle breezes

We are its faith, its culture and its language

We are its heart, its soul, its Memory, its aspirations and its Dreams

And we, by the grace of God, will be its Destiny and Future one Day!!

Our struggle lives on as long as our Strength, Hope and Determination survives, which will NEVER DIE!

Your sorrow is deep, and unending is your pain

Hearts and minds tormented, but only your oppressor’s gain

We are all in grief for your suffering, but wonder what we can do.

To alleviate your oppression, Pray to God and keep Him in your heart too.

We have chosen to follow the path to peace which alas not many seem to want to follow as this path of peace is also the path to Truth, Justice and Love for Humanity.

We have a winding path with all its twists and turns, confronting us with never ending obstacles
but we will face and overcome them together through our joint determination and our eternal faith in our Creator -

Our sole path to the one and only Bright Light

    FREE GAZA

    by Nahida Izzat

    Nashida Izzat is a Jerusalem-born Palestinian refugee living in exile for over 40 years. She was forced to leave her homeland, Palestine, at the age of seven. A mathematician by profession, Nahida writes poetry in her spare time and longs for the liberation of her country.

    Beloved people of Gaza,
    Treasured people of Palestine,
    Allow me to kneel
    And wash your feet with my tears.

    I Believe in Miracles.

    You can break my bones.
    My spirit is invincible.
    You can deprive me of my sight —
    My insight you will never take away.

    In the shadows of darkness
    You can destroy my house,
    The windows of my hope:
    But you cannot break
    The pillars of my faith.

    You can threaten me
    With weapons of death.
    You cannot cut off
    My divine connection.

    With a missile
    You can tear my body apart,
    But my soul
    Is out of your reach.

    You can never defeat my will
    Because my strength comes
    From my creator.

    In the interests of economy, I have shortened and edited Nahida’s much longer poem drastically. Apologies to Nahida. For the full poem, see here:

    Strike At The Weak-Point, The “Judeo-Christians”
    (Apollonian, 26 Apr 09)

    Indeed, the very same, exact thing going on now in Palestine–the steady, on-going Israeli/Jew take-over of what was the native’s–is now LITERALLY taking place here in USA.

    Not only are foreigners, aliens, and enemies invading USA with collusion of US government controlled by Jews–but native (Christian) Americans are being dis-armed and harassed by these Jews and their pawns–in favor of these illegal invaders.

    But evermore people are perking up to the real truth: our own gov. is our worst enemy, and it’s happening at behest of the COUNTERFEITERS who run the US Federal Reserve (Fed) fraud–see RealityZone.com for expo/ref. And it’s Jews who are the masterminds, unquestionably.

    The only next step now is for people to RE-DISCOVER real Christianity and its proper purpose: ANTI-SEMITISM–TRUTH against Jew lies and conspiracy, according to Gosp. JOHN. Christ was NOT “Jew,” which Jew is Talmudist (see RevisionistHistory.org, TruthTellers.org, and Come-and-hear.com for expo/ref.) by definition. And Christ explicitly cursed and condemned these Talmudists at Gosp. JOHN 8:44, condemned the Talmud at Gosp. MARK 7:1-13.

    Presently Jews, by means of their counterfeiting, have literally bought a tremendous number of so-called “Christians,” the “Judeo-Christian” (JC–see Whtt.org and TruthTellers.org for expo/ref.) hereticalists who are taught most stupid, brainless lies, like Christ was Jew.

    CONCLUSION: These JCs then are the obvious WEAK-POINT to present Judeo-conspiracy. And Christians are INVINCIBLE when we go out person-to-person. “Think not I came to bring peace; rather, I come to bring a sword” (Gosp. MATT 10:34). Most excellent example to follow is Pastor Carlson at Whtt.org. So comrades, we patriots must get active, heeding truth, exposing Jew lies–esp. those of their slimey JC suck-alongs–where they’re really most weak and vulnerable. Honest elections and death to the Fed. Apollonian

    Enjoyed your poem, M. Rice. You have some very good lines and the soul of a true poet. Keep writing and good luck.

    “Honest elections and death to the Fed!”

    Hi, Apollonian! I recognize your distinctive voice from the past! You’d always end your posts with the line quoted above, right?

    You used to post on Patrick Grimm’s defunct website (antizionist), if I remember correctly. Must have been 3 years ago. Any idea what became of Patrick Grimm?
