    World-weary of Westerners: German poet Gunter Grass revealing poems against Zionists

Pars Today- Israel's aggressive policies are not hidden even for some Western thinkers and famous figures so that many of them have created lasting critical works against the savagery of the regime which are like arrows to the heart of the regime.

One of these figures is Gunter Wilhelm Grass, German writer and poet and winner of Nobel Prize in Literature in 1999 who has gained countless rewards and honorary PhD from the American universities as a prominent writer and sculptor. He died at the age of 87 in a hospital in Lubeck city of Germany.

This renowned German poet and thinker, publishing his anti-Zionist poem titled "What I should say" in 2012 on several German and Western media and magazines, drew the global attention and aroused the anger of the leaders and supporters of this occupying regime.

Gunter Grass says he composed the poem after Germany sold submarines to Israel capable of carrying nuclear warheads.

Grass, who published the poem on the German daily Zu Deutsche Zeitung and the Italian daily La Republica, reiterates, "Nuclear Israel threatens the fragile peace in the world."

He in his poem calls for unimpeded and permanent control and monitoring of the Zionist regime's nuclear capabilities, where he says,

But, why have I prevented myself,

to utter another country's name,

which, since past years- though clandestinely-, has taken over increasingly nuclear ability free from any control, as no supervision is possible?

Referring to the sale of the German submarines to the Zionist regime with the aim of controlling Iran's nuclear program, he composed,

But this time, out of absolute profiteering,

even if with flattery as compensation for the past,

is announced that another submarine

is delivered to Israel

whose feature is

to carry warheads of mass destruction

and capable of directing towards places

where not a single atomic bomb has been proved to exist

and merely fear and horror is the reason for that

and I say what should be said.

Gunter Grass, elsewhere in his poem, calls on other thinkers, who are opposed to the crimes of the Zionist regime, to break their silence and says,

And I admit that: I will no more keep silent

as I have become world-weary

of the hypocrisy of the Westerners and I hope

other persons, too, will get rid of this silence

so that the sources and perpetrators of palpable danger

are made to abandon resorting to force.

Publication of Grass' poem, as a Noble Prize winner, in addition to special awakening for public opinion, infuriated the leaders of the Zionist regime.

Grass, after extensive attacks on his poem, had said that the German media have launched a guided struggle against him which is not to the benefit of democracy and freedom.

He stressed several times that he would never renege on his stances against Israel.

Grass also emphasized, "There are countless people who confirm my view, but their views do not find their way to the mass media."
