I have the right to be angry, as a Palestinian, as an Arab, as a Muslim, and as a human being living in the most wonderful and powerful nation in the world, the USA. I have the right to be angry. I seriously want to feel proud to be American, but I can’t, I tried to force myself to feel proud, but I find pride run away from me. Millions of Americans lost their jobs, other millions of Americans  lost their homes,  the economy is in recession, Banks are bankrupt, and our men and women killed in faraway land, and the USA make a contract with Israel to secure Israel’s borders from smuggling arms. After thousands from Palestinians killed  including civilians, women and children, instead of stopping arms from places American government know very well its origins to Israel. And Even though I can’t feel proud, I feel I want to cry or laugh or dance. But in this case I may need psychotherapist to check my mentality, but when you know why I want to cry, or laugh or dance, you will share with me laughing or crying or may be dancing.   When I see hundreds and thousands of Palestinians like me, die everyday, a baby did not pass first year, a motorcycle rider happy with his bike for the first time bombed from the sky, people have vacation on the shore in family reunion, bombed by sea war-boats, buildings ruined, civilians killed by air strikes, and the USA foreign policy going to the ground in its strategic diplomacy, asking the silly question, what did I do? America acts like the blind, the deaf, as if morality have traveled so far away from American democracy.

In other words, I would laugh, the USA contributes in the daily suffering of Palestinians. Every learned person in North America has to know that before Israel became a state in 1948, JEWS owned only 7% percent of the Palestinian Land, and Palestinians had 93% of Palestine. Palestinians from that time, are suffering as refugees, and in the last 20 years since the so called-Oslo accord, I feel responsible for not feeling proud as an American. Everyday I see more humiliation news against myself as an Arab, as a Palestinian, and as a Muslim, and as a human being. Everyday I find our men and women in the arm forces are facing death in the far land.

How can I feel proud about a nation stand all times side by side with Israel. I look everyday to see any hope for American morality to show itself and stand firm for justice not for Israel at all times. I wish and hope to see and hear America wake up from the Zionist nightmare, with open eyes and minds to see the enemy of the American people which cost the American budget $7 million Dollars daily [$500.00 Dollars  from each and every tax payer in America.] To wake up and stand tall in world politics not as the big police officer of the world, but as the big brother to oversee justice and freedom.

The recent years policies and practices of hating the monster America have to change into years of love and respect of  USA abroad. We all know history, no matter what the USA media say. The free press in America is a big joke we all know-they themselves know- Except few,  beware Americans, I am warning you, the enemy inside, not out. The war against a small group does not secure America. What secure America is its good deeds, its practice to its slogans of freedoms, justice, and equality not for JEWS only, but for all including Palestinians. I pray to God for America to come back to oversee its interest rather than leaving it self as a camel drown by a mouse. Only on that time I may say: I am proud to be American. www.hasanyahya.com
