Palestine... I love you!

Words have failed me once again...
I don't even know how am I supposed to feel?
Should I be sad? for the land where 60 years ago my dad was born is now in the hands of Israelites?
Should I be angry? for some people are celebrating one of history's biggest crime of invading a land of other people and claim it their own?
Should I be hopeful? that even 60 years from then... Palestinians are still standing... fighting... never loosing faith in their freedom... that even if they live in the other part of the world when asked answered they are from Palestine...?
Should I be pessimist? that even 60 years from then... the land is still occupied... that Israel is a legitimate country and that the leaders of the world are congratulating it for its independence... that all the Arabs and Muslims have done nothing to aid their brothers and sisters....?
Should I be sorry? for all the million obvious reasons... for living my life normally as always... for forgetting and moving on...?
Should I be ashamed? because not only the land is not free... but us... here and there...?

Palestine... I don't know which of these feelings should prevail... but I can't help but say I love you...
I love you Land of the Greats...

For what it's worth, the land where my dad was born is now in the hands of the Poles, yet I don't feel anger or hatred towards them, nor do I feel pessimistic, nor ashamed.

I didn't see anything about war... but before peace can be made... justice and freedom should be given to ALL people...
if anyone hit you... you can choose to be angry or not... but your choice shouldn't be the ONLY right choice...
