Below is the first stanza of “Semitic Blood Feud” by Gregory M. DeSylva. You can read the entire poem on the DYR main website.
“Come, let us go down and confuse their language,
that they may not understand one another’s speech.”
– Genesis 11:7
Why such discord between Arab and Jew?
Descended from Semites of Chaldea
via Noah’s son Shem –
both “Shem-ites” through and through;
Abraham, of Shem’s line, their patriarch
Arabs – scions of Ishmael, his first son
Jews – scions of Isaac, his second;
