I Won't Weep for You
Zain Bhikha

Oh Little One
I won’t weep for you today
Allah has smiled upon your heart
And taken you away
Amid thunder and confusion
Your tears and cries so thin
There were angels there beside you
Calling you to him
And though you walked upon the earth
For such a little while
In the playground of forever
You’re running with a smile
So Little One,
I won’t weep for you today
Allah has smiled upon your heart
And carried you away

Israel has gone too far. This is just inhumane. I sympathize with those poor Palestinians. It must be so hard to have your land taken away from you and now this.:[ May God bless them.

Israeli strikes didn't exclude children in Gaza strip.

A man who lost five daughters; he wasn't a fighter. He wasn't against Israel for his house to be targeted.

The democratically elected terrorist organization Hamas.
For the Palestinian people in Gaza it is akin to knocking the roof supports away and not expecting the roof to fall on top of them.

Let's see. Hamas launches a bunch of missiles into Israel.

Israel, like clockwork, hits all Hamas targets it can find, killing civilians in the process.

Hamas indignantly decries the loss of civilian life.


Has it ever occurred to you nitwits that maybe this tactic you've been trying for the past four decades ISN'T working? Israel isn't going anywhere. In fact, it's stronger today.

In short, Hamas is a bunch of nihilistic losers who are too stupid to eschew violence, even thought that would actually make their cause a little more sympathetic in the world's eyes.
