Gideon Levy called his "superb poems (some of) the most powerful love songs ever written to this bleeding land. His words of yearning cannot fail to move anyone who reads them."

It's unclear whether he or Israel won its war on Darwish. He once said:

"I am from here, and here I am, and I am I, and here am I, and I am I".forever here, here forever."

Darwish's " Silence for Gaza " in part said:

"Gaza is far from its relatives and close to its enemies, because whenever Gaza explodes, it becomes an island and it never stops exploding." 

"It scratched the enemy's face, broke his dreams and stopped his satisfaction with time. Because in Gaza time is something different."

"Because in Gaza, time is not a neutral element."

"It does not compel people to cool contemplation, but rather to explosion and a collision with reality."
