Can anyone hear me?

Can anyone hear me?

I’m sick of The Wall

I’m sick of the checkpoints between Palestinian

cities

I’m sick of illegal Israeli settlers and settlements

I’m sick of having the Hebrew language on my

ID card

I’m sick of people not knowing anything about our

history but knowing so much about Jewish

history

I’m sick of people ignoring the Palestinian Right of

Return and accepting the Jewish Law of Return

Can anyone hear me?

I’m sick of the Oslo Agreement which no one here

wanted in the first place

I’m sick of the Palestinian Authority having zero

authority

I’m sick of watching my father being humiliated at

checkpoints by people my age and younger

I’m sick of my international friends having to lie

about coming to visit; being interrogated, strip

searched and sometimes deported in the process

I’m sick of people not understanding what

“occupation” is

Can anyone hear me?

I’m sick of being scared all the time

I’m sick of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder being

a normal state of being here in Palestine

I’m sick of how ineffective the UN has become

I’m sick of International Humanitarian Law not

applying to the State of Israel

I’m sick of how fighting for basic human rights for

Palestinians or being critical of Israeli policy is

so often labelled “anti-Semitic”

Can anyone hear me?

I’m sick of the fact that everybody forgets I’m

a Semite

I’m sick of hearing Israelis complain about

discrimination when the State of Israel was

founded on a principle of ethnic purity

I’m sick of living in a time when racial profiling has

become acceptable

I’m sick of constantly being treated as a suspect

I’m sick of how mainstream media portrays us and

our situation

Can anyone hear me?

I’m sick of the whole world caring about Gilad

Shalit when there are more than 7,000

Palestinians inside Israeli prisons

I’m sick of trying to defend myself, friends or

countrymen and being labelled a terrorist

I’m sick of the fact that everywhere I go I can see

The Wall, a settlement or Israeli soldier

Can anyone hear me?

I’m sick of 63 years of Israeli Occupation!

One thought on “Can anyone hear me?

  1. Yes I hear you loud and clear. I feel you pain and frustration. Little sister, the shame is on all the Arabs and Muslims who are deaf and mute. Your call we be answered when a new Al-Mu’tasim hear you.
