Defend Freedom


For the sake of freedom For the sake of our children It is they who kill children by the hundreds Who uproot blessed olive trees Who demolish houses, neighbourhoods and streets Detention Thousands of detainees in prison Blockade They smash towns and villages Dispersing peace demonstrations With tear gas With bullets With missiles With shells With artillery With gunfire With bullets With missiles With shells With artillery With gunfire Curfew Assassination The language is a language of weapons and gunfire It is they who build the separation wall They’re building the separation wall The pregnant woman gives birth at the checkpoint Under soldiers’ watchful eyes They shoot at ambulances Tens of thousands injured Hey you! the vibrant world Pull down the wall Pull down the wall And build a tower of just peace For the sake of freedom For the sake of our children For the sake of freedom For the sake of our children For the sake of freedom For the sake of our children
