Reflections on My Aversion to Israel

As I browsed various websites, I stumbled upon an advertisement proclaiming ‘Why I Love Israel.’ This prompted me, as a Palestinian, to offer my perspective on ‘Why I Don’t Love Israel.’ It’s crucial to shed light on our side of the story, one that has been overshadowed by the narrative spun by the Israeli PR machinery for the past 75 years.

Born in a camp, concentration’s chain,
Cities sieged, IOF’s ruthless reign.
Israeli settlers, thieving with glee,
Stealing land, where olives bleed.

Father’s plight, no pension’s reprieve,
Checkpoint humiliations, apartheid’s sieve.
Childhood fears, invasions at night,
IOF’s terror, shadows ignite.

Sweetheart denied, love’s torn,
Children barred, kinship scorned.
IOF claims God’s promise, a bitter seed,
Detention without cause, silenced creed.

Injustice persists, fueling the narrative trail,
A tale of suffering, in shadows pale.
