Dareen Tatour – “Resist, My People, Resist Them”

May 4, 2018 at 7:10 am (Life & Politics, Poetry & Literature)

Resist, my people, resist them.

In Jerusalem, I dressed my wounds and breathed my sorrows

And carried the soul in my palm

For an Arab Palestine.

I will not succumb to the “peaceful solution,”

Never lower my flags

Until I evict them from my land.

I cast them aside for a coming time.

Resist, my people, resist them.

Resist the settler’s robbery

And follow the caravan of martyrs.

Shred the disgraceful constitution

Which imposed degradation and humiliation

And deterred us from restoring justice.

They burned blameless children;

As for Hadil, they sniped her in public,

Killed her in broad daylight.

Resist, my people, resist them.

Resist the colonialist’s onslaught.

Pay no mind to his agents among us

Who chain us with the peaceful illusion.

Do not fear doubtful tongues;

The truth in your heart is stronger,

As long as you resist in a land

That has lived through raids and victory.

So Ali called from his grave:

Resist, my rebellious people.

Write me as prose on the agarwood;

My remains have you as a response.

Resist, my people, resist them.

Resist, my people, resist them.

Dareen Tatour

Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band – “War” (Live – 1985)

April 14, 2018 at 9:15 am (Life & Politics, Music)

“Blind faith in your leaders — or in anything — will get you killed.”

War!
What is it good for? Absolutely nothing!
Say it again… war!
What is it good for? Absolutely nothing!
Come on
 
War is something that I despise
For it means destruction of innocent lives
Ten thousand bullets in a mother’s cry
When their son’s go out to fight to give their lives in a…
 
War!
What is it good for? Absolutely nothing!
Say it again… war!
What is it good for? Absolutely nothing!
 
War
It ain’t nothing but a heartbreaker
War
Friend only to the undertaker
 
War is the enemy of all mankind
The thought of war it just blows my mind
Handed down from generation to generation
Induction, destruction, who wants to die in a…
 
War!
What is it good for? Absolutely nothing!
Say it again… war!
What is it good for? Absolutely nothing!
 
War
It ain’t nothing but a heartbreaker
War
Friend only to an undertaker
 
War has shattered many young men’s dreams
Made them disabled bitter and mean
Life is too precious to be fighting wars each day
War can’t give life it can only take it away
 
War!
What is it good for? Absolutely nothing!
Say it again… war!
What is it good for? Absolutely nothing!
 
Peace, love and understanding it all
There must be some place for these things today
They say we must fight to keep our freedom
But Lord there’s gotta be another way that’s better than…
 
War!
What is it good for? Absolutely nothing!
Say it again… war!
What is it good for? Absolutely nothing!
Come on now
 
War!
What is it good for? Absolutely nothing!
Say it again… war!
What is it good for? Nothing!
 
I’m talkin’ about war!
