Michael Peach

While climate change is clearly ominous,
Regarding the future of humanity,
Another threat is no less dangerous –
Apocalyptic religiosity.
Since the two-state solution is now dead
And Revisionists their zealous fight have won,
Evangelicals believe they hear Christ’s tread:
Their countdown to Armageddon has begun.
Meanwhile Islamic eschatology
Provides its own, ingenious “End of Days”:
Jesus, according to this theology,
Will lead the Muslims in that final phase.
++Only a democratic Palistrael
++Can save us from this looming, man-made hell.
