In the middle of the night
My cell phone rang
My friend annoyingly woke me up
To tell me watch the news
Definitely it wasn't a nice time 2 call
I hanged up and didn't bother to move
The next day we met
She asked if I watched the news
I laughed at her and said of course not
Her face turned red with anger
I didn't understand her
But there seemed something strong
I quickly asked what's wrong
She told me...
'Children are dying...Blood is everywhere...
Israel isn't letting a day free...
They've no food...no water...no nothing...
And people like you prefer to sleep
Then to show care
From where do you expect victory? ? ?
And we just say Israel don't do that! ! !
It's just not right! ! !
When lazy people like you are around
Why would Israel care? ? ?
Why would Israel stop war? ? ?
If you don't care
Why do you blame Israel that she doesn't? ? ?
Gaza is a river of blood...
A mountain of skulls...
People are injured...
And there is no medicine to cure...
Was it to much just to watch the news? ? ?
Do we no longer feel? ? ?
Where did people's rights go? ? ?
Where did animal's rights go? ? ?
They treat animals better then people in Gaza! ! !
What is the meaning of that? ? ?
Is that something normal? ? ?
I can't believe what I see! ! !
Gaza we are all for you...
We will never surrender...
And if you aren't interested...
It's your choice...
But when your turn comes...
Don't cry for help...
Israel wouldn't stop...
When she stopped talking
My tears where unstoppable...
I was so speechless...
So ashamed of myself...
But my friend reminded me......
