Wind of Change

At the end of the day, there can not exist a single human being who would approve of such barbaric and uber cruel mechanisms of destruction.

(LONDON) - This poem written by Arthur Jewell during the Israeli attack on Gaza that we refer to as 'Cast Lead' (consider that name for a moment...) was sent into the newsroom today by our correspondent in London, Gilad Atzmon.

It injects into a few simple verses, the magnitude of Israel's seemingly endless attack on mostly civilian targets. We are reminded that Israel has the best weapons sighting software and systems known to man, yet they claimed they were 'mistaken' when it was shown that Israel had selected numerous occupied schools as targets.

This, as Israel dropped leaflets warning of the pending destruction, suggesting residents take shelter in certain locations, which were then attacked by the Israeli military with illegal white phosphorous.

At the end of the day, there can not exist a single human being who would approve of such barbaric and uber cruel mechanisms of destruction. It is just simply as evil as any military war of occupation, oppression and attrition.

This is the year people from all over the world will rise up and resoundingly say "no" to Israel's destruction of the Palestinian culture. We will stop it with the use of massive numbers of human beings united under a single cause.

When considering Israel and Operation Cast Lead, any nation that sponsors this level of terrorism on a civilian population essentially gives up its right to pull a chair up to the bargaining table and make a deal. That time is passed and the one thing we know is that Israel will not fight fair and they won't wage a war of honesty as we do.

"Wind of Change"

Gather round! Come gather round!
See the Caterpillars on stolen ground
Break the branch and rip the root,

Build Apartheid Wall and persecute!

(God?!) How can you talk to us of Love!
Your twisted zealots scream high above
To pain the humble and crush the dove.
The Zionist fist in a Cast lead glove.

So!  Is this your 'promised land'
This prison-camp of bloody sand?
And if they are your 'chosen people'
Should they wreak such racist evil?

Flesh-smudged concrete, pulverised bone,
Even the brutalised are'nt left alone.
We can see your Zionist 'kind' ;
Sinister evil of the Fascist mind!

Crimes of Aggression.  Crimes of War.
Then sound-bombs again for 'The Settlers' score!
Who will win your political election,
The Zionist bigot, or the Zionist whore?

Your 'chosen people' fear no blame!
Add Olives and Water to their list of shame:-
Shatila.  Sabra.  Quana.  Jenin.
Elders clutch keys as their memories scream

(God!) How will you talk to us about Love
Collective Punishment ordained from above?
Your gifts of siege and deprivation
Compliment the cruelty of your Zionist Nation!

So!  Witness the Flechettes, the D.I.M.E.-shredded gowns,
The White Phosphorus casings and bulldozed towns!
This hell-on-earth which you bestow......
Will light your pyre!

People of Conscience gather round
Now blow!  BLOW !
         (Arthur Jewell. Jan 2009)
