The Bleeding Gaza... - Poem by M.D Dinesh Nair


We hear and read about
The sixty years you the Palestinians have spent
Away from your land and worn out homes
Led like a herd of cattle into the Gaza Strip
And the West Bank as the Jews have been
In the ghettos of Nazi-occupied Europe ever.

For sixty years you have been fleeing
From massacres and tortures against you
Which are like the onset of the Holocaust
-The eventuality for all!

The Palestinians, you are getting dispersed
With your homeland being chewed up almost daily,
All throughout the world,
As the Jews were after Rome's pillage of Judea.
And recently you have all been walled in we hear
From what is now called Israel.
It is Suffering the same fate
That the Jews ever did when
The Romans built Colonia Aelia Capitolina.

But do you know?
The Jews were once more wronged than
You are being wronged now...
The pages of history say so
And we read them again and again.

The clerics and retaliating wings of the Hamas,
Terror is not a way out you all have to realise
Why are you burying your past glory
Even as you try to win the minds of the others.
Death of every child counts
Whether his father is an allah or a Jevoha
Both carved out of your past and peril.

Be prepared to have compromises
As living is more important than dying
For your fleeing men and women as well.


Israel, history says your soldiers today are
None other than the Romans and the Nazis of old.
Listen to the wails of the women and men in Palestine
Whose homes have been reduced to rubble,
Whose sons and daughters and brothers and sisters
Have been slaughtered in large number like pigs.

These are like the cries, you remember
That once burst forth from the mouths of your people
When the ruins of Jerusalem were being buried
Under Aelia Capitolina the incorrigible
As their loved ones were being tortured to death
in the concentration camps.

Israel, the oppressors of your people
Are still alive, you know not
Why you are daily uprooting and murdering
The Palestinians, your brethren?
Stop this atrocity against a people thrown apart,
Stop your blabbering for now.

People of Israel,
The tale of the Promised land and the halo of Moses
Are no more the things to be bought for now.
The U.S and the West cannot wash their hands soon
And they know it.
You are fine human beings in a wrong land
As your emperors are war mongers ever.

Dear beloved of the Jevoha,
Hate not the kids bleeding to death in the Gaza strip
And pray to your'Jevoha'for half the eternity down here
In the lands of the Palastinians misled by a coterie
Of clerics and riders of the land invisible.


The U.N.O is an organization
That is summed up as follows
[Courtesy Koffi Annan- Former Secretary General of the U.N.O].

When there is an issue between two small countries
The U.N.O interferes and the issue VANISHES,
When there is an issue between a big country and a small country
The U.N.O intervenes and the small country VANISHES
And when there is an issue between two large countries
The U.N.O intervenes and the U.N.O itself VANISHES.

The blood spilt is red
That is yet to be spilt will be redder perhaps
And who will stop that? None of you or all of you?

    Thank you for sharing us the facts with clarity. Very true said, there is solution for everything, but nothing works out here. I liked the UNO part which you said humorously. Only we can hope somehow the peace prevail and war comes to an end....You have presented it beautifully. (Report) Reply

    It takes a brave poet to wade into this dispute. Both sides have legitimate grievances and that's why there are no easy answers. (Report) Reply

    Dinesh, thank you for your boldness in expressing your views in a forthright manner. Corridors of the world are turning narrow. One does not seem to understand the other. Hope peace will somehow prevail ultimately. (Report) Reply

    As ever you are alert and sensitive to the global issues! We all feel for Gaza, but you are perhaps one among the few to voice your concern about it over poemhunter. The atrocities by the Israeli forces and the blatant murder of even the innocents are so condemnable! Tracing back to the time of Moses, in detail, you have narrated the history of these hostile people. The Palestinians who never had a land of their own until Yassar Arafat established a nation of their own were fated to be always under the animosity of a virulent nation like Israel and their plight has been always miserable! All peace loving people think that terror is not the way to seek solutions and these nations should come to peace!
    Particularly enjoyed that part on UNO...... How true! !

    Amazing write Dinesh! Full 10

    Every problem has a solution and then every solution has a problem- they say. I have a fear that most of our friends outside Asia and those beyond the Atlantic may not be sensitive about the disturbances in the Middle East. I thought of writing this poem as I felt this is in fact a graver issue than the ones I have written about. Thank you Valsa madam for your equally self speaking comment.

    The great write and the great concern shown to both people of Palestine and Israel where peace is a mirage
    and if God wish it may prevail and not through actions of U.N.O that has been reduced to a puppet.......Dineshji
