martyr Mohammed Alareer



A very sad story by Refaat Alareer, writing about his brother Mohammed Alareer, a father of two, who was killed by an Israeli airstrike while he was at home. 

While he was at home. :-(

A Poem.. Exodus, by Taha Muhammad Ali





The street is empty
as a monk’s memory,
and faces explode in the flames
like acorns –
and the dead crowd the horizon
and doorways.
No vein can bleed
more than it already has,
no scream will rise
higher than it has already risen.
We will not leave!

Everyone outside is waiting
for the trucks and the cars
loaded with honey and hostages.
We will not leave!

The shields of light are breaking apart
before the rout and the siege;
outside, everyone wants us to leave.
But we will not leave!

Ivory white brides
behind their veils
slowly walk in captivity’s glare, waiting,
and everyone outside wants us to leave,
but we will not leave!

The big guns pound the jujube groves,
destroying the dreams of the violets,
extinguishing bread, killing the salt,
unleashing thirst
and parching lips and souls.
And everyone outside is saying:
“What are we waiting for?
Warmth we’re denied,
the air itself has been seized!
Why aren’t we leaving?”
Masks fill the pulpits and brothels,
the places of ablution.
Masks cross-eyed with utter amazement;
they do not believe what is now so clear,
and fall, astonished,
writhing like worms, or tongues.
We will not leave!

Are we in the inside only to leave?
Leaving is just for the masks,
for pulpits and conventions.
Leaving is just
for the siege-that-comes-from-within,
the siege that comes from the Bedouin’s loins,
the siege of the brethren
tarnished by the taste of the blade
and the stink of crows.
We will not leave!

Outside they’re blocking the exits
and offering their blessings to the impostor,
praying, petitioning
Almighty God for our deaths.



Exodus, Taha Muhammad Ali

little tiny Gaza

The Palestinian territory of Gaza is 41 kilometres (25 mi) long, and from 6 to 12 kilometres (3.7 to 7.5 mi) wide, with a total area of 365 square kilometres (141 sq mi).[6] As of 2014, Palestinians of the Gaza Strip numbered around 1.82 million people..  Wikipedia

here it is fitted into a few places in Ireland..

Imagine 1.8 million people
squeezed into a space;-

  • Tralee to Dingle
  • Aughnacloy to Strabane 
  • DĂșn Laoghaire to Balbriggan


1.8 million people with nowhere to hide, death walking among them :-(

Remove all Israelis from Ireland.

The Palestinians are being slaughtered in their homes, men women and children... in the name of all that is fair and decent Ireland must stand up for the Palestinians..., in the last several hundred years we have been in the same position at the hands of the english dogs.

I call on the Government to act now to remove all Israelis from Ireland.
