The Protestant Boycott of the UN Conference on Racism, 2009

“The West wants a Jewish state”. – Canon Naim Ateek

The Canon’s puzzled he just can’t dig
Western commitment’s old, it’s big
They “want” a Jewish State for sure
Palestinians must endure

An ancient and religious quirk
Covenant holy (God’s the clerk)
He granted thus the sacred deed
To real estate, the West’s agreed

Included in the print so fine
Just Jews and Protestants (don’t you whine!)
The land is theirs, there’s no dispute
So suck it up! Bow down, salute!

It’s no surprise they’ve lined a-row
Protestant states have got the dough
(At least for now, but who can tell
What’s down the road? Financial hell?)

Israel blew the opening whistle
At all reluctance they did bristle
“Let’s go, line up, don’t hesitate!
We’ll smear you with the brush of hate!”

The US led the snarling pack
(Even with a Prez who’s black)
Germany cried out “Jawohl!”
And joined the Protestant patrol

Snubbing thus Durban II
Along came Swedes, New Zealand too
Australia and Canadians
Fell into line, got with the plan

Eager Dutch did tag along
Calvinism shared, they all belong
Except for dear orange Silvio
The odd man out, what does that show?

A teenager longing to be cool
Italy’s exception proves the rule
And the rule is that the West doth want,
A Jewish State, their faith they flaunt

Enlightenment they recommend
To black and brown they condescend
But they themselves do hope and pray
The “Holy Land” is theirs each day

Racism? Nah, it ain’t important
Gaza genocide doesn’t daunt
These WASPs unite behind their creed
With Johnny Calvin they’re agreed

Amalekites are who they fear
They tremble lest they draw too near
And property is their core measure
Toxic assets they dearly treasure

God did give them Palestine
Eternally, decree divine
Tough luck you folks indigenous
You’re the Other, you’re Unblest

And so we now can clearly see
Judeo-Protestant solidarity
The boycott shows without a doubt
Politics driv’n by the devout

The willful failure of western progressives to understand Israel's role as a colonial, theocratic and apartheid entity contributes in large part to progressive inability to successfully oppose both the war in Iraq and America's push for total global domination.
