They gave him a chance

We cannot give him another chance!
Why not, now he is a Prime Minister.
He is elected democratically.
He promised to change his whole vision ...
He was a killer; all of them were criminals ...
He is not the only one or the last one ...

But at least he changed ...
He promised he is another person ...
We need to respect Israeli democracy.
We need to give Sharon a chance ...
He may be the only one who will give peace.

The debate between the US Congress ....
As well as US Administration was so real ...
So unreal ...
Everyone was lying to everyone ...

Yes, let us give him a chance ...
He will not embarrass us ...
We told him, he should not.
Who can emabrass the US?
We have our way to lie to the world.
Again and again the world will listen to us.

Yes, let us give him a chance ...
Sharon changed ...
Sharon is not the same.
Sharon has matured ...
Now he is old enough to understand!

And they gave him money, weapons ...
They gave him vetoes at the UN ...
They gave him Media support ...
They changed his image ...
He was a war criminal, unwanted in the US.
He became a hero, and a model in the USA.

They gave him a chance to show how he changed.
Sharon showed them that he could not change.
Sharon asked for 100 days to kill.
They closed their eyes to the murders.
Sharon will not embarrass the US.

Sharon will only use US power.
With US weapons and US "intelligence" ...
Sharon has killed and  will kill.
US will not be embarassed.
US Adminstration knows how to lie to the world.
"Intelligence" is their specialty!

For a chance to kill.
USA objected any UN forces in Palestine.
Sharon was free.
He can do it. He did it. He will do it again.

And Sharon said: We are just responding to their violence ...
The same way Great Britain responded to Ghandi in India.
The same way France responded to the Algerians.
The same way Italy responded to the Libyans.
The same way Britain and USA are killing Iraqis.
The same way the Cowboys toward  Native Americans.

Israel follows the good example of the past.
The past of those who gave Sharon a chance.
And silenced all the world, especially the Arab world.

And Sharon wanted the Palestinian nonviolence ...
To become violent.
And he wanted the Palestinian violence ...
To become more violent.
His way to tell the world that the victims ...
All victims of the IDF and of the Settlers ...
Victims resisting violence are all criminals.
Because they learned how to respond with violence.

We are just responding to Palestinian violence.
Sharon said. For every stone we use tanks.
For every bullet, Gunships, F16 and missiles.
For every Israeli death, twenty Palestinian death.
For every shot on a house, destruction of Palestinian houses.

This is the logic of those who gave him a 100 days.
This is Sharon logic.
Those who gave him a chance ...
Have done the same in the past ...
To people they denied dignity.

A chance has been given to Sharon.
They said he changed ...
And in fact, the 100 days chance ...
Sharon showed the change.
He made wifes into widows.
And USA said: A chance has its price.
And of children orphans.
And USA said: "War is war".

And lies like air go where we do not see:
Israel is only responding to Palestinian violence.
The Palestinian right for independance

US gave Sharon a chance to kill.
Sharon killed.
Sharon will kill.

Until US Cowboys will stop killing the world.
And the innocents with the weapons "Made In USA".
And stop lying the same way ...
The old way.
The way they lied in the past.
USA is out of Human Rights commission.
Out of any commision that speaks about humans.
USA is out of the UN.
