Parallels

Sixty years have the Palestinians spent
away from Palestine,
herded into the Gaza Strip and the West Bank
as the Jews were
in the ghettos of Nazi-occupied Europe.
For sixty years they have been fleeing
from massacres against them,
which are not unlike the pogroms of the Holocaust.

With their homeland being chewed up almost daily,
the Palestinians are getting dispersed
throughout the world,
as the Jews were after Rome’s pillage of Judea.
And recently they have been walled in
from what is now Israel –
suffering the same fate that the Jews did
when the Romans built Colonia Aelia Capitolina.

Israel, the Oppressors of Your People are Still Alive

Israel,
your soldiers today are the Romans and Nazis of old.
Listen to the wails of the women and men in Palestine
whose homes were reduced to rubble,
whose sons and daughters and brothers and sisters
were slaughtered like pigs –
these are the same cries
that burst forth from the mouths of your people
as Jerusalem’s ruins were being buried
under Aelia Capitolina,
as their loved ones were being gassed to death
in the concentration camps.
Israel,
the oppressors of your people
are still alive –
daily uprooting and murdering the Palestinians.
