The Way It Looked in 2007

by Mark Chmiel

Beneath all the proclamations about Arab terrorism
And the ethical nobility of the Jewish state
Expropriation by any means necessary
Is the master narrative necessary
To comprehend the history of Israel/Palestine

And so we arrive at a land-grab state
That under the protective wing of its superpower patron
Continues the annihilation of Palestinian society
The conversion of the Occupied Territories into a gigantic prison
And the steady expropriation of its land

— adapted from Joel Kovel, Overcoming Zionism
