Why are you here?

Ahed

Facebook want this picture removed. It seems the West wants this girl to disappear. Her name is Ahed Tamimi. She’s 16, our daughter is 15. They live in two different worlds.
These are the charges against her – aggravated assault (a slap), interfering with army operations, incitement, making threats, and throwing stones.

Hold me back, restrain me.
Put me in jail, detain me.
Tie tight my hands, bind me.
Why are you here? Remind me.

Kill my family, shoot them.
Destroy my shops, loot them.
Fasten my legs, entwine me.
Why are you here? Remind me.

Clear my village, destroy it.
Tear gas can, deploy it.
Terrorist? Assign to me.
Why are you here? Remind me.

Invade my body, rape me.
Hunt me down, break me.
Convict me falsely, fine me.
Why are you here? Remind me.

I am sixteen, hear me.
I am many, fear me.
You will NOT redefine me
Why are you here? Remind me.
