Oh Israel Soldier, I ask you !
Oh Israeli soldier, you say that you want safety yet you’ve fired at a group of school children who carried no weapons except books and pens in their school bags.
Oh Israeli soldier, you say that you’re a peace loving person, yet you caused Umm Mohamed to cry before she fell to the ground as you violently dragged her 15 year old son and arrested him.
Oh Israeli Soldier, you say that you belong to one of the worlds strongest armies, then why do you take cover before firing at peaceful protesters who have no weapons but stones.
Oh Israeli Soldier, does it not haunt you to see 5 year old Huda, sitting by a gate and all she’s able to do is watch her friends skip and catch butterflies, she lost her legs after you released a barrage of bombs that hit her room in which she peacefully slept.
Oh Israeli soldier, you say that you love freedom, then why do you partake in night raids, taking innocent men and throwing them behind bars for years.
Oh Israeli Soldier, you wake up the next morning, dress up, stand before your mirror, comb your hair, put contact lenses into your eyes,
Do you beautify yourself to kill ??
