Certainly no poet should be (house) arrested because of a poem!
But how could an artist make an artwork based on a poem with lines like
For an Arab Palestine.
Resist them, my people, resist them
and follow the caravan of martyrs.
I think one calls something like that a hate poem and that is not OK!
If I would make an artwork based on that poem I would support hatred in
an already violent conflict.
Please don't ask for that!

>> The lyrics of the poem in Arabic, English and Hebrew are available here.
>> If we, many of us, also publish her words and we are not convicted by the Israeli state, then we must ask the true basis upon which this poet was criminalised.

>> With your agreement we intend to curate a digital-only album of submissions, to be made available for sale on several platforms.
