NAHIDA THE EXILED PALESTINIAN AND THE MASS MURDERING JEW BERNARD HENRI-LÉVI

“Why don’t you write about the chaos happening now in the Middle East?”
Some may wonder
“Don’t you have anything intelligent to say in such dreadful times?”
“Oh YES I do of course I do, I have much to say”
When you see a person being beaten up by a mob
Could be slaughtered before your eyes
What would you do first?
Do you stop to help him, save his life?
Or do you point at his dirty clothes,
Ask him to get changed first, as you criticise?
* * *
What I have to say is bitter sweet
Aimed at my Muslim family
From all schools of thought
Drained and disunited
Oppressed and dehumanized
Pushed into a trap
Is it the right time to say what I have to say, then
While babies being slaughtered
And the innocent smothered under?
O CHILDREN OF ISRA'IL!
 Remember that We made a solemn covenant with the children of Israel to this effect: worship none save Allah: be good to your parents, to your relatives, to the orphans and to the helpless; speak aright with the people: establish the Salat and pay the Zakat. But with the exception of a few, you all slid back from it and are paying no heed to it even now.
[84-86] Remember also that We made another solemn covenant with you: you shall not shed blood among yourselves nor expel one another from your homes. And you confirmed it and you are a witness to it. But inspite of this, you are killing your brethren and driving them out from their homes and making unjust and aggressive alliances against one another. And when they come to you as captives, you trade on their ransoms whereas their expulsion itself was unlawful for you. Do you then believe in one part of the Scriptures and disbelieve in the other?92 What other punishment do such people from among you deserve except an ignominious life in this world and the most grievous doom on the Day of Resurrection? Allah is not unaware of what you are doing. These are the people who have preferred the worldly life to the life in the Hereafter. Therefore their torment shall not be lightened nor shall help be given to them (from any quarter).
