Rest in peace to my homeland.
Forgotten and forsaken by the world.
We still scream from the daggers our fellow Arabs stabbed in our backs.
Rest in peace to my homeland, where you are killed because of your name.
The “activists” wave their flags, but I see no one waving your flag.
The “pious” pray for peace, but I see no one praying for you.
The “nationalists” sing songs of brotherhood, but we are no brothers to them.
Rest in peace to my homeland, because I may be the last one still hurting over you.
Something I wrote a year ago. Just as relevant today as it was then.
ISIS militants destroyed the mosque of Prophet Jonah. If Israel does something similar in Palestine, there is outcry but the reactions are always muted when Saudis bastardize Mecca and Medina or when Jihadis blow up mosques of our own Prophets.
Over 5,500 Iraqis have been slaughtered since the invasion of ISIS, with tens of thousands of Christians, Shias and Kurds demonised and forced to flee their homes. The world doesn’t seem to care because Iraq is not in Gaza. For those of you posting about Gaza only, I wish you just make an effort to see what’s been happening in Iraq and stand up to this cancer that’s plaguing both Iraq and Syria… Isn’t it about humanity after all?!
