who, US

who, US? by Michael R. Burch jesus was born a palestinian child where there’s no Room for the meek and the mild ... and in bethlehem still to this day, lambs are born to cries of “no Room!” and Puritanical scorn ... under Herod, Trump, Bibi their fates are the same — the slouching Beast mauls them and WE have no shame: “who’s to blame?” What is happening to Palestinian children in Gaza and the West Bank is a crime against humanity, financed by American taxpayers. Keywords/Tags: Palestine, Palestinian, children, Gaza, West Bank, Jerusalem, Bethlehem, Jesus, Christ, child abuse, race, racism, violence, meek, mild, lamb, lambs, kids, Herod, Trump, Bibi, slouching, Beast, American, Christians, Christian, shame, blame, Bible
