A poem is read in honor of terrorist Karim Younes.

 

Narrator: “On one of the hills of ‘Ara in the Triangle (i.e., a concentration of Israeli-Arab towns and villages in northern Israel), which is Palestinian to its roots, in the embrace of an ancient home within it, a Palestinian mother gave birth to her baby, and she smelled on him the scent of earth as it is molded by the rain. She said: Son of my womb and offspring of my spirit, I have given you to God, be a sword for the homeland, a fence for the land, and a book for the history, which the free people will be satisfied with. It happened just as she said. He was a sword, a fence, and a book full of messages. When he grew up, became strong, and became a young person and his steps reached the path, he ignored the flow of desire in the veins and the flow of craving in the body, and instead advanced, sketched the map of truth, punctiliously investigated the custom of the thief who took control of the produce in the granary and in the storage jugs, and sought information that would reveal to him the thief’s weak points and strong points as well, so that he would perhaps be able to restore the map to its previous and original state. His weapon was a notebook and a pen and a revolutionary place of prayer, which gave the idea its virtue and determined for the rifle its target and for the behavior its nobility and dignity. During the day Karim would write his many articles for the people at home, in the neighborhood, and in the café and university, and when night fell he let his actions speak, and they spoke in a precise language that the thief of the land and life understands. When they arrested him at the beginning of his young life, he did not stand in a dark corner letting out groans and moans, but rather stood upright as a noble man while dealing with the impossible and managing the burdensome time, building a castle and creating an epos.”
