Remi Kanazi’s poetic justice

Poet Remi Kanazi’s most recent article Prism of Peace: The Failure of the Israeli Left and the Two-State Solution is a good restatement of the case for moving beyond what is increasingly seen as the false promise of the so-called two state “solution”.

New Yorker Remi is a Palestinian American poet and freelance writer who lives online at Poetic Injustice; see also Poets for Palestine, a forthcoming book of poetry he has edited.

In this short video clip, he recites two of his poems at a Lebanon Rally last year after the Israeli attack:

To Exist Is To Resist and Free Yourself (3:45)

Timely Reminders

"Those who crusade, not for God in themselves, but against the devil in others, never succeed in making the world better, but leave it either as it was, or sometimes perceptibly worse than what it was, before the crusade began. By thinking primarily of evil we tend, however excellent our intentions, to create occasions for evil to manifest itself."
-- Aldous Huxley

"The only war that matters is the war against the imagination. All others are subsumed by it."
-- Diane DiPrima, "Rant", from Pieces of a Song.

"It is difficult
to get the news from poems
yet men die miserably every day
for lack
of what is found there"
-- William Carlos Williams, "Asphodel, That Greeny Flower"
