You call me a terrorist?

From Fidaa Abu Assi’s blog Gaza in Words.

Look me in the eye. Do I look like a terrorist to you? Scan my features: my teary eyes, my breathless smile, my weary mind, my bleeding heart. What the hell terrorizes you? Which part of me confuses you? Fear not my hijab. I don’t hide bombs behind my ears, and I don’t think that my hair has Samson-like power, either. Fear not my stone. I got no pistol, no machine-gun, no apache, no F-16, no phosphorus bombs. It’s a stone. Only a stone. I don’t think you think I am too naive to think of throwing a stone to kill you. My stone doesn’t kill. We throw it to stop you from killing. Yet, you stop only to kill. When you robbed my land, I remain landless. Now, you want me lifeless? And hopeless? Don’t you think you were wrong when you made me your choice? No matter what, I won’t give up my Palestine. Fear only my Palestinian-identity and Gazan-personality. Fear me. I’m, and will always be, the albatross around your neck. I’m the angry Palestinian. I am the truth. The truth you fear.

    You’re not a terrorist, Fidaa, and the Zionists know it very well. That terrorist handle they keep trying to stick on you is part of Israel’s demonizing campaign to disparage the Palestinians in the eyes of the western world. The real terrorist collectivity is the Israeli one and you don’t have to defend yourself or your hijab because it won’t get you anywhere with these people; time is on your side and you’re already seeing the cancerous country starting to tear at the seams with stories like the one at Beit Shemesh.

    • time is on your side and you’re already seeing the cancerous country starting to tear at the seams

      yeah, did you read the whole thing? fighting words:

      When you vowed to kill, we vowed to survive…….Fear only our God who created us too adamant to give in and too resilient to give up. Doubt yourself. Doubt your god. Doubt your skill. Doubt your definitions of the words. You are fake. Your truth is fake. Your power is fake. Your hope is fake. Think twice when you make us your choice. Think twice because the truth has a voice. Think twice when you terrorize me then call me the terrorist because it’s too obvious to ignore the plainest.

      that which does not kill us makes us stronger..

    Awesome, Fidaa.

    Fear me. I’m, and will always be, the albatross around your neck. I’m the angry Palestinian. I am the truth. The truth you fear.

    You are fake. Your truth is fake. Your power is fake. Your hope is fake.

    Had you read about our historical background, you would have chosen another identity to target but not the Palestinian one. Fear us. We are the Palestinians.

    Give up the challenge. We were born too invincible to die.
