Jesus Spoke Aramaic To The Children Of Israel

Jesus Spoke Aramaic to the Children of Israel

By Genevieve Cora Fraser

Christ the Palestinian
Fell hard
To the ground
He was born
Through his death
To life eternal
Awaiting all
Who Believe
In Love
Christ the Arab
Is Jesus Incarnate
Traveler to distant
Lands returned
To preach and pray
He made his way
Along Palestinian
Pathways fated
To be tortured
To die the sun
Hit his eye
In the scorching
Heat he was beat
By Occupiers
Worked over good
Flesh lashed
Until slashed
The trap
A trial
For the Judean
King he denied
Land was the prize
But rather
The Kingdom within
Flesh torn
He was shorn
For the kill
A Palestinian man
Aramaic his brand
Of talk nails pierced
Hands and feet
Sword thrust
Into his heart beat
His is a Path
To the grave
Replayed and replayed
Through death
You are saved
Tell the Palestinians
As they stumble
To their Crucifixion
Do this in memory
Of me He said
As he broke the bread
In Communion
With the suffering
Of the world

Ramzy Baroud: Being Black Palestinian - Solidarity As A Welcome Pathology

It should come as no surprise that the loudest international solidarity that accompanied the continued spate of the killing of Black Americans comes from Palestine; that books have already been written and published by Palestinians about the plight of their Black brethren.
