A CHRISTMAS CAROL/TRAVEL THROUGH THE NIGHT
SEE ALSO
And again a Family finds is way, on the flight for hunger, war,
hunger, persecution?
Who will tell?
And then THEY are the happy ones!
How often does it occur, that families are torn apart, the man goes alone,
parents lose their children during the flight.
A woman loses her husband.
Loosing everything they hold dear.
They have to leave their dwelling residence to be registered
somewhere on the orders of a dictator, a foreign occupier, who
don’t give a f….ck abolut their conditions.
Whether they are rich or poor, healthy or sick.
If the wife is pregnant or not.
You have to leave
Or else……
Rich people can find a shelter, but poor people
must try to survive.
And what if you are pregnant and poor?
What if you are a Palestinian woman, standing
by a checkpoint, in occupied territory, in need
of delivery, at the mercy of the grace of occupying
soldiers, of oppressors?
NOWHERE WELCOME
NOWHERE ALLOWED
Untill someone pities you and gives
you permission to deliver your Baby in his
basement.
In his stable.
Does that sound familiar?
Christmas Tale is not about cosiness, Family Togethering, buying large
and expensive presents, although that is nice.
It,s about exclusion,
It’s about people, who are welcomed nowhere, who are oppressed
Because of their:
POVERTY
RELIGION
DESCENT
RACE
DO I KNOW?
Do I know, what nasty things people think of in their
blindness, xenophobia, hatred, obsession for money, greed, racism and antisemitism, to humiliate others.
I don”\t know, what ugly things occupiers invent, whether they are
Israeli [Palestine], Chinese [Tibet], Moroccon [Western Sahara], or else,
to humiliate the occupied people?
What a US president invents to hold back desperate migrants.
Children in cages?
CHILDREN IN CAGES
A CHILD BORN IN A STABLE
BOTH, NON WANTED
BOTH, NOT WELCOME
What atrocities are inventing by any dictator on this Planet?
And don’t you forget their invisble Western and Chinese [and other]
comrades in Evil, who want to flourish their multinationals in
dictatorial countries!
Christmas is all about exclusion
Blocking people, who don’t have hope
AMSTERDAM
But let’s stay closer at home
Because it is the mayor of Amsterdam, and her predecessors,
who left out in the cold those refugees, who couldn’t be deported,
but yet had no rights, no shelter, no food.
Refugees, who dwell in Amsterdam since 2012, year after year, without
rights
NOT WELCOME
LIKE THE CHILD IN THE STABLE
CHRISTMAS/HOPE AND DESPAIR
Christmas is exclusion
But also the Unborn Child, on His Way with His
Parents to Safety.
The Parents and the Unborn Child, they know about
exclusion, being not welcome.
Therefore they are in Solidarity with all
opressed, discriminated, occupied, humiliated and tortured
people of the Earth
The Child has come to this World to give them Hope
What are You doing, Reader?
