the tragedy of 1948

the tragedy of 1948 

Israel declared statehood the west was happy
the Jews had suffered much and deserved a state
the fact that 700 thousand Palestinians lost 
their homeland was overlooked.
We were all pro- Israel back then and thought 
the region would usher in peace and prosperity.
It was not to be.
Instead, we see that the land of promise has 
turned violent wanting all of Palestine and part of Syria
and Jordan too, they appear unstoppable.
The only group holding them back a little is the Hezbollah
who we call a terrorist, but they are a bulwark
the brutal regime in Israel who has nothing to offer but 
a war against anyone opposing their quest for total power.
But the Palestinians are not forgotten the scale fell 
from our eyes, we see what is happening.
Israel as a state should be boycotted, we in the west
should treat the country as an abomination it is.
By curtailing Israel, we will, in the long run, help its survival.
Force it back to the agreed borders, declare Palestine
a sovereign state, and send NATO troops to secure the perimeter
of Palestine and give financial help to her malign people.
