Call to Arms, a Poetic Stance

While I was busy crying my heart out with desperation, my dear friend Katy surprised me with a plan to make me cry some more (yeah, yeah, yeah... my flood gates are open, what am I to do?). She posted a most touching Call to Arms on Poets101:

And here's a list of those who obliged her call so far; I thank each and everyone of you most profoundly. Please check out these poems, they are most touching:
And here's a couple of other related entries:
Thank you so much, Katy, and all the poets of Poets101!

Love your blog! Please consider adding Axis of Israel to your link list. I just started it yesterday, and when I get the hang of the link section, it will be nice like yours!

MO, in solidarity

I pray that Lebanon will rise up and work with Israel to get rid of Hizbollah. Then both countries can live in peace.

This is all the fault of Hizbollah, Iran and Syria. Lebanese and Israeli parents who love their children are tired of conflict.

More poetry and fewer Hizballah rockets is always a good thing!

PS--Mo, your "blog" is a joke. Get outside the ummah much and into the civilized world?

Mo, if you have a Lebanese blog, it will be our pleasure to add it.

Archmemory, you say poetry, and they reply with the same old song they've learned.. getting boring, don't you think? :)

I wrote a poem today for beirut, I couldn't take it anymore when I saw my beautiful city being mutilated again.

Eve, I know! You think they're getting paid per comment, regardless of relevance?

Ashraf,
Thank you for linking to my poem, it seems so little next to what the people of Lebanon are going through, but poetry and donations are the only way I know to help. As Lebanon dies so dies the world.

let me tell you the real story-try to imagin your self:
PART A

Let’s say that the relations between France and its
neighbors are not very good.
Let’s also say that the Belgium government
doesn’t recognize France’s right to exist.
Let’s also say that every day, someone from
Belgium fires 5 rockets to the city of Lille,
and 70% of the Belgiums are happy about it,
and their government is doing nothing to stop it.
Now let’s assume that a group of people from Belgium crosses the border, attacks French troops, kills some of them and captures a French soldier and brings it back to Belgium.
What should France do?

PART B

In the mean time, there is a party in the Italian parliament that has its own army and does whatever it wants. The Italian government says or does nothing to this party.
Let’s say that in a certain morning this party decides to start bombing the French Riviera.
While doing that, they also penetrate the French-Italian border, attacks a border patrol, kills 3 French soldiers and captures another 2.
Again, in this case,
What should France do?


For those who are not familiar with the current events – this is the exact situation Israel is standing against these days, and only retaliates to them.
Would you negotiate for these soldiers knowing you’re legitimizing the next kidnappings? Will your government allow these attacks on its own land?

Hopefully, the saner voices will rise and the fighting will stop. The majority in Israel wants peace and is willing to give up land for it, but not without the insurance of the safety of the citizens. Would you?
