Free Palestine of Hamas

This piece is a response to all the pro-Palestinians protests happening in the West. It is sad to see that there is no differentiation between Hamas and the Palestinian “cause.” There is so much shouting and hatred, and these protests are only creating more division.

I believe in this moment of time, we should all be pro-Palestine and pro-Israel, aiming to build more bridges towards a 2 State Solution, rather than getting more and more polarised. Polarisation and extremism is what actually Hamas wanted to achieve and they succeeded. We need to put an end to  that, and I think (if we really care for the Palestinian people) we do need to stand all together against Hamas and share hope rather than hate.

Hamas is laughing.

Hamas is laughing at us in London, Paris and New York.

Hamas is laughing at pro-Palestine squares of the Free World. 

Hamas is laughing when they receive aids from the UN. 

Hamas is laughing as their propaganda has no end.

Hamas is laughing at the West so polarised.

Hamas is laughing at any talks of apartheid.

Hamas is laughing at the ignorance of the intelligent.

Hamas is laughing at any innocent life taken. 

Hamas is laughing at their civilians’ pain.

Hamas is laughing as children die within their aim. 

Hamas is laughing at how the Media is their PR. 

Hamas is laughing at how “Journalists of War” are.

Hamas is laughing as they hide undergrounds. 

Hamas is laughing as people scream with bombing sounds.

Hamas is laughing as they have water just for them.

Hamas is laughing as they fuel hate with no end.

Hamas is laughing when a bomb hits a school.

Hamas is laughing when chopping heads with a tool. 

Hamas is laughing at “Free-Palestine” in queer dress. 

Hamas is laughing at all of our press.

Hamas is laughing at academics blaming Jews. 

Hamas is laughing at Israelis who stand for You.

Hamas is laughing at all our moral standards.

Hamas is laughing at genocidal slanders.

Hamas is laughing…

…but we hope 

for not too long.

“Free Palestine of Hamas”…

…is what we all need 

to sing along.
