Terrorist versus terrorist!

The news was too short. “ Sheikh Ahmad Yassin, spiritual head of Palestinian militant group Hamas, has been killed in an Israeli air strike”.
The first thing came in my mind by reading this news, was that the world got rid of another extremist leader, but unfortunately by the hands of someone who is nothing more than a terrorist either.

Long-bearded Mullahs come out every night
And they tell you what's wrong and what's right
And when you ask them for something to eat
They tell you in voices so sweet:
You will eat by and by, in that glorious place in the sky
Work and pray, live on hay, you will get pie in sky when you die.

That's a lie!

There is no gate
There is no path

There is no night
There is no moon

No daytime
And no sun

We exist out of the time
A vicious blade on our neck

No body talks to any body
The silence is speaking in thousand words

With a grin on our face,
We are looking at our friends’ corpses
And with no smile,
We are waiting for our turns.

In the leaden backdrop of the dawn
the horseman stands in silence
the long mane of his horse

disheveled by the wind.

O, Lord ! O, Lord!
Horseman are not to stand still,
when the event is brewing.
Beside the burnt hedge
the girl stands in silence
her delicate skirt

waving in the wind.

O, Lord! O, Lord!
Girls should not to remain silent,
when weary and hopeless
men grow old.
