:: Palestimericks :: (From the cabaret program "The Palestine Express")

Will there be two states or one state? This isn't a matter of fate.
Most people say: two. This surely is true,
but I think it's rather too late.

The talks between Mahmoud Abbas and members of Gaza's Hamas
in Cairo succeeded, because this was needed,
yet many say it was a farce.

Is Gaza an occupied land? It seems the flotilla is banned
from Gazan waters. Hello reporters,
explain what we don't understand.

No weapons may pass Gaza's gates! Cause this is what Israel hates.
Except for the ones that come by the tons
each year from the United States.

(Feb 2015): I know a young man from Ni'lin. On Facebook he posts what he's seen.
When editors fail to tell the whole tale
they're part of the vicious machine.
