    Yusuef, that's their home. The region was named Palestine by conquering Romans a couple thousand years ago. No offense, but from where do you think they originate? (Report) Reply

    At Seham Yusuef:
    He is not Jewish. The poem was written long before the State of Israel existed, at a time when Jews were underdogs. It is not that famous.
    Europe is not cold or barren. Israel is sponsored primarily by USA.
    Many of us agree that stealing is wrong, and despise warmongers and occupiers. (Report) Reply

    Is he a Jewish Man? I am a Palestinian and it hurts to see that they want my land, home, olive trees, figs and orange grove. It is stealing from Muslims. This is wrong.
    Are these poems famous because it laid the path to current destruction of the non-European/non-Christian world so the cold barren Europe can survive robbing or pillaging resources from the Eastern green fruit laden trees? Shame on occupiers and war mongers. Shame. (Report) Reply
