Israel’s Mantra Echoes Like The Plagues Of Egypt

Israel’s Mantra Echoes Like The Plagues Of Egypt

By Genevieve Cora Fraser

As military men in swat team
Mode rampage streets and alleys
Israel bemoans the lack of significant
Concessions Palestinians make to secure
Peace for all
Israel has much at stake
Such as brand new highways
Neighborhoods built on occupied land
Settlers require raw sewage pour
Down on hapless villages below
In a power play – a sick joke – they
Watch Palestinian trees and crops
Sicken and die
Arabs to the Crematorium
Is written on cement posts and signs all point
To a Palestinian Holocaust played out
In slow motion Palestinians
Encased within a Wall
Suffer raw sewage flowing through gullies
Blown apart neighborhoods
Bulldoze existence
Not fit for man or beast
Beastly policies are enforced
At gunpoint, by land and sea and air
Drones rain down
Missiles defense means
Killing all in sight
Does anyone care how brutish
Is Israel’s might?
A nation of thugs could not do
A better job of reenacting Nazi
Core beliefs in their outmost superiority
The majority must be maintained Jewish
In Israel they speak
Of such things
Repeated over charts
Scare the living
Hell into them
Execution of Israeli plans demand
The finest sociopathic minds expand
Into unknown territories
Psychopathologies so unique
They astound abound and re-enforce
Zionist dictates to the hilt
Street lights hover without a beam
Stoves unlit
Water unfit
Children’s empty bellies
Bloat with hunger and despair
Does the western world care?
Palestine’s economy declared
Out of bounds
Near starvation is the ruler’s rule
Until the lesson is learned
In full
Israel demands
Significant concessions
But will not grant them
To the blind and the lame, cancer patients
Are to blame for needing
More than Israel will allow
Bow and kowtow
Infants tossed
From their little beds
As sonic booms boom and spread
Fast and loud like the brags and boasts
Of the Israeli Crowd
Self-assured in possessing
All they survey
Is theirs for the day
But wary
Rests the crown
Like kings of old
Is the concession
They say
The magic word
Cures all ills
People at bay
Get out of line
Another missile sent your way
Security vanished
Hatred grows and stays
Blow after blow after blow
Israel gives to Palestine
Day after day after day
But Palestine lives
And people’s eyes
Are opening
To Israel on display
The world watches
In horror
As the Zionist Entity
By example

Ian Powell: Are we happy living in Handy's Age of Unreason?

On 19 June the Sunday Star Times published my column on the relationship between the Labour government’s stewardship of Aotearoa New Zealand’s health system and the outcome of the next general election expected to be around September-October 2023: Is the health system an electoral sword of Damocles for Labour...

The First Attack On The Independents: Albanese Hobbles The Crossbench
It did not take long for the new Australian Labor government to flex its muscle foolishly in response to the large crossbench of independents and small party members of Parliament. Despite promising a new age of transparency and accountability after the election of May 21, one of the first notable acts of the Albanese government was to attack the very people who gave voice to that movement. Dangerously, old party rule, however slim, is again found boneheaded and wanting... More>>

Binoy Kampmark: Predictable Monstrosities: Priti Patel Approves Assange’s Extradition
The only shock about the UK Home Secretary’s decision regarding Julian Assange was that it did not come sooner. In April, Chief Magistrate Senior District Judge Paul Goldspring expressed the view that he was “duty-bound” to send the case to Priti Patel to decide on whether to extradite the WikiLeaks founder to the United States to face 18 charges, 17 grafted from the US Espionage Act of 1917...

Dunne Speaks: Roe V. Wade Blindsides National

Momentum is everything in politics, but it is very fragile. There are times when unexpected actions can produce big shifts and changes in the political landscape. In 2017, for example, the Labour Party appeared headed for another hefty defeat in that year’s election until the abrupt decision of its then leader to step aside just weeks before the election. That decision changed the political landscape and set in train the events which led to Labour being anointed by New Zealand First to form a coalition government just a few weeks later... More>>

Binoy Kampmark: Leaking For Roe V Wade
The US Supreme Court Chief Justice was furious. For the first time in history, the raw judicial process of one of the most powerful, and opaque arms of government, had been exposed via media – at least in preliminary form. It resembled, in no negligible way, the publication by WikiLeaks of various drafts of the Trans-Pacific Partnership... More>>
