Awakening the Resistance

http://www.counterpunch.com /


-snip-

Dont count the blackened bodies of the peach farmers of Qaa laid out in the afternoon sun along the roadside. Dont weep for the petrified, death-stolen children under the concrete rubble of Qana. Dont suffer the incinerated of Marwaheen, the blasted of Srifa and Khiam and Tibnine. Dont list the villages lost or the homes destroyed; dont number the dead of Beirut and Tyre. Dont listen to the wailing on the beaches of Gaza. Dont mourn the lost lives of Khan Yunis or Beit Hanoun, people of the sand and the dust; of corrugated iron and uprooted orange groves. Dont number the fallen in Nablus or Jenin: the old shepherds, the young rebels, the pregnant wives and weary husba! nds, the somber schoolgirls and the angry boys in the lost alleys of the camps. We will hear all of their voices again; see their likenesses in the shattered streets of the Levant. They will gather beneath the cedar and the minaret; carry with them the kuffiyeh and the Quran; they will speak the language of the resistance that we have breathed into them like fire.

2. Fools never understand that they're creating a hatred that
will jump back and bite them in the ass.
