where hypocrites and religious zealots preach hate
as they call for the invasion of your country
the subjugation of your people
the downfall of your government.
When they spread lies and misrepresentations
repeated and repeated and repeated
in a foriegn media which promotes hatred
until to some, you become the faceless enemy
without a face or a voice
without love of mothers, fathers, sons, daughters.
When it feels like the whole world is against you
isn't it tempting to want to throw it back
in the face of your presumed enemy
to support those who hate
to want to fight back
to clutch at straws
as you tragically embrace
a liar of your own?
In a word, yes.
