More ruthless than Timurlenk and more coward than Arabian Peninsula “Arab” leaders

I wrote a few poems in Arabic in January 1992, and I had no recollection of them. I just retrieve them when decluttering the house after mother passed away. I will re-edit them in English

“Arabian” leaders of treachery and indignity

Cocktailing Masters who are more ruthless than Timurlenk

And more coward than the “Arabian” leaders in the Arabian Peninsula.

In pseudo-States created by colonial powers

Where neighbors are aliens

Billions of petrodollars are burned to intimidate the “Arabs”

Their children are homeless and hungry

In cities that never sleep or give a damn.

The poorer classes live in shantytowns

Forever in “temporary” lodging.

Even the Palestinians in refugees camps managed

To build houses in stones when allowed

And breathed life in the stones

Throwing stones of fire and anger at the soldiers of our existential enemy

This Israeli implanted apartheid colonial State in our midst

Another ruthless enemy, and as coward as the “Silent Majority“.

He is mistaken who thinks that Iraq is Arabic.

Sure, we like to dwell on the illusion that Iraq

Is an intrinsic part of the Syrian people

One Nation, one people

Going back to the glorious empires of Babylon and Assyria.

We did miss the boat:

Iraq has been Pharisi since the Sassanid empire 

And its revival is at arms reach.
