DIFFERENCES IN MORALITY
by Albert Russo
kidnap and kill Israeli teenagers
they sing, dance and rejoice
and call the murderers heroes
kill young Palestinians
the nation feels guilty, not proud
and the perpetrators
have to pay for their crimes
Remember 9/11 in Manhattan?
the Arab street screamed with glee
Oh to kill 3000 people in the heart of America!
Did it matter that all religions were represented?
What a fantastic feat did those
Western-educated Saudis accomplish!
When Israel wiped out
all the Jewish colonies in Gaza
instead of a gesture of reconciliation
the response was rockets, thousands of them,
launched in southern Israel,
and that has been going on for twelve years,
aiming at one million Israeli civilians
day in and day out, traumatising the population
What other country in this world
welcomes in its hospitals, free of charge
civilian enemies with serious health problems
those include Palestinian babies
from Gaza and the West Bank,
Syrian soldiers badly wounded,
Syria being an awoved enemy of Israel,
as well as patients from all the other
Arab countries who still have not recognized
THE EXISTENCE OF ISRAEL
On the 15th of July Israel accepted a truce
but the Hamas refused it
and continued for six hours
to launch rockets towards Israel
aiming this time at 3,5 millions civilians,
including Tel Avivians and Jerusalemites,
thanks to their former Iranian allies
So, who wants to continue the war
and cares so little about its population?
When Pope Francis prayed at the Security fence
did he know that thanks to it,
terrorism had almost disappeared in Israel?
you ought to pray for Pope Francis
so that he understands that one cannot compare
the Berlin Wall and the Security fence.
Are people the same all over the world?
Some swear by death, destruction and martyrs
others sanctify life and innovation
for the good of humanity,
yet some in the world: the negationists
and the intellectually blind,
see what they want to see,
always treating Israel as the agressor.
