This Is For The Zionists

An ode to Zion by one of Israel's greatest friends.

This

Is for the Zionists.

for a people exiled from their land

Time after time after time

their

crime was their ethnicity

and so their history as a people has been filled with blood

 

With blood and with tyranny,

as nations and invading armies uprooted them, looted their homes,

took away the songs of their culture, ravished their wives and daughters,

enslaved and depraved them

Slaughtered and tortured, they still marched forward, they still marched forward.

 

Rejected and detested in every land they entered, they still marched forward, they still marched forward.

 

This

Is for the Zionists.

For the

fight still in them

like their Macabeean ancestors

we honor every winter

light candles and remember

how they stood tall against the invading Greek armies

and in this we endeavor to be brave just like them.

 

And fight when

the long dark days of evil creep up

and Persian Hamans threaten us once more

Purim’s story remains relevant.

 

See today the bomb is being prepared

and eloquent

speeches from Western governments speak softly

of appeasement

while we

beg them to instead be brave and save the lives of innocents.

 

But in a sense, its evident

that things don’t get done unless the powers that be have incentive

 

So this, we will give them.

 

In this, We send them our creed and our mission.

A declaration of freedom.

We compel them

to stand for the very things they claim to represent;

 

Put emphasis on liberty, cause fecklessness is not an option.

Its easy to get downtrodden when a crazy theocratic government

spews toxin and hate. Generates evil among the people, legislates anti-Semitic laws, agitates other governments,

engages in and harbors terror overseas, its far too easy to get bothered by these.

 

But this is a celebration…

 

Cause no matter the beatings, the lynchings, the slanders and the lies

 

the chambers of gas choking the shaven women as they cried

 

the numbers sketched on arms, the place where Anne Frank did hide,

 

No matter the number of Jews who were vanquished and who died,

 

This is Zion’s pride, and we do not apologize.

 

That in spite of their land stolen from them and conquered, they still marched forward, they still march forward.

 

With eyes turned towards Jerusalem, their eternal capital before them, they still march forward, they still march forward.

 

Towards the dawn,

the

advent of their civilization,

the

place where they began,

where the soil matches the dust of their skin

and you can

hear the ground sing of their triumph,

 

 

towards an oasis where the pigmentation of the people matches the colors of the rainbow. Where the

rich

dark

coco skin of the Ethiopian

gently collides with the blonde dread locks of the Ashkenazi,

where the free

Arab moves, and lives, and works, and creates

this is just another day in this land and they still march forward, they still march forward.

 

Here the Hebrew nation resides

No longer stifled but free,

the rifles once pointed at them

they carry

tarrying all day

defending their land

never again to be taken from them

These natives of Zion, The indigenous ones,

the wives, the husbands, the daughters, the sons,

these generations of a once exiled people

feeble, weak, plagued with defeat,

 

Yet today they rise… their hearts filled with fire,

they are powerful and free, mighty to inspire, their songs of victory reach higher and higher to heaven

this is the triumph of Zionism

 

Abolition of a nation enslaved by the world’s opinion,

  3. Adou Abel says:

    The JEWS are the most IMPORTANT PEOPLE in the world.

    Their History is the fact that lucifer hate them because the SAVIOR CAME FROM THE JEWS.

    Jordan is Palestine…get used to the concept…either move there or die at the hands of the IDF. Am Yisroel Chai! Never Again!

  6. They support Israel’s right to self defense while simultaneously emboldening the animals who attack. This regime does not speak for the majority of the American people. We support Israel. My God bless you and keep you safe.

Because let’s face it: Hamas obviously can’t defeat the IDF in the field, soldier against soldier

IDF soldier injured in Gaza is evacuated by helicopter to Soroka hospital.

The residents of Gaza were not occupied by the Hamas; they voted for the terror organization in democratic elections, by a huge majority, by virtue of its uncompromising struggle against Israel. For this reason, the separation between the armed Hamas terrorists and those ‘not involved’ or ‘innocents’ is false. The Gazans are now paying for […]

Shimon Peres meets with the family of fallen IDF soldier Max Steinberg.

As Peres retires, Israel fights sour legacy: Insistence on setting policy in line with hopes, rather than with reality.

Our capital was not arbitrarily chosen, as capitals of some other nations were.

UNHRC High Commissioner Navi Pillay accuses the IDF of possible war crimes in Gaza again, cutting slack to Hamas.

There is much I can write you about what is going here, but I am wondering what I should not write. I will start by imagining that I am you, sitting at home in the Los Angeles area and flipping back and forth between the weather, traffic reports, the Ukraine, Mexican illegals and Gaza. No […]

Should Jews in Europe take more responsibility in self-defense of community and property?

Germany’s The Jewish Faith newspaper ominously noted, “We Jews are in for a war after the war.”

The truth is we seldom explore with kids what prayer is supposed to be about.

Almost as one, Jews around the world are acknowledging the day-to-day peril facing ordinary Jews in Israel and the extraordinary service of the IDF in protecting them.

So on the one hand Secretary Kerry makes no bones about who is at fault for the current hostilities: he clearly blames Hamas.

King Solomon said it long ago: “Cast your bread upon the waters” because you don’t know when you’ll hit something. Our job is to do.

The anti-Israel camp does not need to win America fully to its side. Merely to neutralize it would radically alter the balance of power and put Israel in great jeopardy.

We mourn the dead, wish a speedy recovery to the wounded, and pray that God guides the government.
