ISIS executes 1,500 Shi’as in one day on Eid. Go on. Keep scrolling. Don’t speak up. Stay silent. You aren’t Shi’a so why should you care, they aren’t coming after you. Not yet anyway. But one day they will come to kill your sons and rape your daughters, and no one will be left to speak up for you.

Thoughts and prayers to all my brothers on the front lines in Iraq, fighting off foreign terrorists and traitors all while fasting in the brutal summer heat of Iraq. No one is protesting in solidarity with you. No hashtags. No banners. Despite all that I pray to God to keep you all standing strong, and to send those bearded rats to the depths of hell where they belong.

“The first sujud means that I was mud clay in the beginning, and as I raise my head from sujud, it means that I came to the world from the soil. The second sujud means that I will again return to the soil, and as I raise my head from sujud, it means that on the Day of Resurrection I will rise up from the grave and be summoned.” — Imam Ali (as), [Bihar al-Anwar, V.82, P.139]  (via sange-saboor)

"they call us now.

before they drop the bombs.

the phone rings

and someone who knows my first name

calls and says in perfect arabic

“this is david.”

and in my stupor of sonic booms and glass shattering symphonies

still smashing around in my head

i think “do i know any davids in gaza?”

they call us now to say

run.

you have 58 seconds from the end of this message.

your house is next.

they think of it as some kind of

war time courtesy.

it doesn’t matter that

there is nowhere to run to.

it means nothing that the borders are closed

and your papers are worthless

and mark you only for a life sentence

in this prison by the sea

and the alleyways are narrow

and there are more human lives

packed one against the other

more than any other place on earth

just run.

we aren’t trying to kill you.

it doesn’t matter that

you can’t call us back to tell us

the people we claim to want aren’t in your house

that there’s no one here

except you and your children

who were cheering for argentina

sharing the last loaf of bread for this week

counting candles left in case the power goes out.

it doesn’t matter that you have children.

you live in the wrong place

and now is your chance to run

to nowhere.

it doesn’t matter

that 58 seconds isn’t long enough

to find your wedding album

or your son’s favorite blanket

or your daughter’s almost completed college application

or your shoes

or to gather everyone in the house.

it doesn’t matter what you had planned.

it doesn’t matter who you are

prove you’re human.

prove you stand on two legs.

run.”
