      Poetry Submission: Israel Stands Alone

      Israel Stands Alone
      by Shifra Hoffman
      It's time to face the facts at last,
      To see the die which has been cast...
      For after all is said and done
      "There's nothing new under the sun"
      Israel is condemned by all
      Nations large, and nations small
      All join hands to heap their scorn
      On the Jewish state...reborn!
      The British sent their willing knave 
      To lecture us "how to behave"
      These paragons of humanity
      Who held Jews under lock and key
      The Soviets say :nyet, nyet, nyet"
      Israeli oppresion we cannot let
      Whose notorious iron gate
      Prevented Jews to emigrate
      Of French honor we surely know
      As their vichy records show
      Then,perhaps Israel should heed
      Germany's "moral word and deed"
      Of course, there's always the U.S.A.
      To whom we look to "save the day"
      Can it be...our only "friend"
      Joins all the others in the end?
      Oh, foolish Jews, have you not learned
      As far as this old world's concerned
      If Israel were to disappear
      These nations would not shed a tear
      For that which torah sages knew
      Proves time again to be so true
      Except for G-d, it's clearly shown
      Israel...stands alone!
