Arab poet Taha Muhammad Ali

I just stumbled on this video on YouTube of a poetry reading given by Taha Muhammad Ali, a renowned Palestinian poet.  His poem, “Revenge”, is beautiful in Arabic and English, and its message is one that we must often be reminded of–that hate should not breed hate.

I think I’ll be picking up his book, So What: New and Selected Poetry: 1971-2005
