Holocaust Survivor Addresses Syrian Refugee Issues - Poem by Terence George Craddock (afterglows echoes of starlight)

applying race class gender qualifications
proposed political religious agendas to refugees
is mentality flawed outdated cruel heartless

Did we learn nothing from holocaust refugees?

'HOLOCAUST SURVIVOR ELIE WIESEL'S
MESSAGE TO THOSE WHO WANT TO
ACCEPT ONLY CHRISTIAN REFUGEES: '

'No human race is superior;
no religion is inferior.
All collective judgments
are wrong.
Only racists
make them.'

I submit to all racists
hiding behind scare tactics
emotive hate labels
disguised in personal agendas
that a holocaust Survivor is
a definitive informed source

for comment on refugee issues
with first hand experiences
concerning how cunning racists
manipulate sway public opinions
to achieve bigot political ends
inflicting more extreme persecutions

excessive hoop hole restraints rules
regarding acceptable immigrant status
upon homeless destitute refugees
who have already suffered racist attacks
in their own hate devastated countries
where western agendas intervened conflicts

treat people with kindness,
generosity, respect;
with heart felt sincerity,
people will respond in kind;
those who can't need
a little help loving care;

is this really too much to give?
