    Poem of the Month, October 2015: To a Suicide Bomber


    By Ada Aharoni

    Deluded, brainwashed suicide bomber
    they lied to you
    when they brainwashed you
    with sleek murderous words
    in their stupendous “shahid” washing machines
    where they only wash young brains like yours
    with bomb-flamed slogans
    and rat poison soap-suds

    They lied to you when they told you –
    you will surely go to heaven and ravish 72 young maidens
    when you courageously blow yourself up,
    and kill many, many innocent people –
    they lied to you

    and you did not have the courage
    to ask them: “if so,
    why don’t you go?”

      The suicide bomber is a victim of propaganda … War is hell on earth and suicide is against the Muslim religion. So very sad and scary. Congratulations on a great peom that we can reflect upon

      I agree that everything that they been thought is a lie, and they should question why don’t they go themselves instead of sending them off. I’m very sad that most of those suicide bombers are young people and even uneducated.
