  • "Heavy-hearted country of my birth
    without warning you transformed me
    from a poet singing for love
    to one writing with a knife...
    Losing the war after all is not so strange
    in the East, we flame into battle
    armed to the teeth with words."

    from the poem "The Catastrophe of Arab Defeat" by Syrian diplomat and poet Nizar Qabbani in 1967 in response to the Arabic humiliation in the Six Day War, in which Israel crushed an attack from Egypt, Syria, and Transjordan
