The Semitic People - Poem by Oskar Hansen
The Semitic People
I Like the Jewish people lived among them
in Wavertree, Liverpool like me small shop- keepers
and they often came to my café for coffee.
I dislike Israel, because of the brutality and
reluctance to give their brothers the Palestinians
I like the Palestinians I have met quite a few in
Portugal and like the Jews they believe in education.
But I dislike the religion Islam
I find it intrusive forever pushing complaining
wanting Europe to be more Islamic, do not take
up this religion keep it to your heart
Europe needs you, but Muslims have to accept that
they live here and must respect our laws.
I look forward to a merger between the Jews and
Palestinians but it is a long road and
much suffering before they get there.
As it is I defend Palestine as my family once upon
a time defended the Jews
