the arab spring

The Arab Spring 

Saddam Husain, Mubarak and soon Assad
will go… and we can be jubilant and call it
democracy and freedom. 
But this does not include the Christians,
In Iraq there are hardly any left, in Egypt 
they are under attack and when Assad falls
the Christian Arab will hounded, those who 
are no able to escape…killed. 
The rebels in Syria we now supply weaponry 
 to will, like they are doing in Egypt, be ready 
to enforce their odious idea of Islam.
 We, in the west must, if we are upright take
In the refuges and not let them fester in some
camps and fed by the Red Cross.
Give our Christian brothers a new spring, far 
from the battlefield of hate and ignorance.

    Hi Jan - The Arab Spring prompted me to read again about the Christmas truces in WWI. Moments suspended in time until it all started again. We should live for your last two lines. Kathy
