No Longer, Silent
Could it not be
that youth of Muslim origin
go and fight in Syria and elsewhere
Because they see western nation
bombing one country
but sparing their oil allies?
Do we think so little of them that we
think they have been groomed
to see the obvious?
And being young want to fight back
to defend their Arabic heritage
and cultural values.
We only have to look at Palestine and
their plight and not be angry.
The young men and women who fight
for ISIS do so because it gives them a structure
in life, the West has denied them.
