"Delegitimize Israel"... a poem by Anne Selden Annab

"Delegitimize Israel"

"Delegitimize Israel"
is a propaganda scam-
a scare tactic
and a distraction

and yet another way
to oppress, displace, silence
and destroy Palestinians.

A nation is a nation
from inside- not out

Its citizens are loyal
or not

Free and equal
or not

Inspired to care
or not

Flags flutter
laws are made
and then changed
with changing times

Families do what they can
to survive with what they have
and what they can understand...

Legitimize international law
and basic human rights

Legitimize justice- peace
and Palestine

Legitimize an actual end
to the cruelty and the hate created
by the Israel/Palestine conflict
with two fully sovereign
fully secular states
for everyone's sake
for every family
every home
every child

Legitimize justice- peace
and Palestine
