Innocence Erased: The Tragedy of Stolen Lands

Palestinians carry their possessions on their heads as they flee from a village in Galilee about five months after the creation of the state of Israel in 1948 File: Reuters

The Israeli-Palestinian conflict has claimed tens of thousands of lives and displaced many millions of palestinians and has its roots in a colonial act carried out more than a century ago.

Land stolen, a ruthless decree,
Palestinian soil, soaked in misery.
Occupation’s grip, a sorrowful brand,
Apartheid whispers, scars on the land.

Ethnic cleansing, a haunting past,
Israel claims, forcefully cast.
Human rights denied, a brutal truth,
Amnesty’s report, a damning reproof.

Checkpoints loom, silent hells,
Cities divided, heart-wrenching spells.
Arrests and detentions, fear’s cruel gear,
Injustice thrives, the tragedy severe.
