from the surface of the earth…

from the face of the earth

has israel
and
others
become
the
fourth reich
an embodiment
of
hitler’s
demonic purification
of
a nation
has
the blood
shed
become
the shield
for
atrocities
committed
with
ss precision
to
cleanse
the land
of
all those different
justified
by
hitler’s
emulation
of
the united states
seizing land
pushing
indigenous peoples out
or
massacring
women
children
and
all
who opposed
injustice
whether
they’re
fighting
or
praying
the
objective
is
the same
to
clear the land

    • Jews are human beings, subject to all the fallibilities of human beings.
      The state of Israel does not equate to all Jews.
      The state of Israel does not even equate to all its citizens, a significant number of which object to its current policies.
      The sate of Israel, however, currently has a right-wing government, dedicated to furthering the aim of a mono-ethnic country.
      Right-wing governments are fascistic, no matter what their ethnicity, no matter where they are in the world.
      The canard about “comparing Jews to Nazis” is not a killer argument.

      • Interesting read on your part…the poem does not mention “Jews” but the state of Israel…as Hồ Chí Minh said the war is against the American government…not the American people. Nor does the poem exclude other governments…but each reader filters a poem through their own lenses…Peace Be With You.
