Rocks for Palestine by Everitte Barbee

This piece, entitled ‘Rocks For Palestine’, is a poem creatively drawn out in Arabic calligraphy by Everitte Barbee, as translated below.

The stones being thrown by the Palestinian youths each say “Hob” which means ‘love’ in Arabic.

“We do not throw these rocks with hate.

We throw these rocks with love,

Love for a murdered brother,

Love for a sick grandmother without medicine,

Love for a family we cannot visit,

Love for a world we will never travel,

Love for a freedom we will never experience,

Love for an ancient people.

We throw these rocks with love for Palestine.”

– Everitte Barbee
