Story behind the song
My favorite phrase in this song is: "Beware of the anger of the innocent". I derived this phrase from the title of a wonderful painting by Palestinian artist Ibrahim Saba (Beware the anger of the innocent). One other thing: if you are wondering about UN resolution 3379, don't hesitate and type it into a search engine. You will find the amazing story of how a UN resolution was simply lobbied away, and scrapped from the books after well over ten years. This resolution stated that Zionism is a form of racism (which it definitely is).
Lyrics
Occupation is a hazardous game If you get your hands dirty it will burn you like a flame They want us to bow down surrender our home town For building colonies creating a show down It's not political or meta-analytical It's plain and straight war crimes targeting civilians North American Indians, Australian Aboriginals The people of the land all wiped into oblivion It is never right to steal another people's country Your uebermensch philosophy has smothered your morality No fake excuses, no media control Can cover up the crime It is vivid to us all Because in Palestine There are people trying Just to live their life in peace Though they're occupied You can't control their lives Because they're fighting to be free Have you heard the story about 1948 I'm sure you've heard a story but not what took place Ethnic cleansing like the kind you saw in Kosovo Protected by the powerful and treated o so loveable Justice? seems they don't know what that is They say: power is a healthy way of solving this quiz Military power, economical power Without continuous infusions they wouldn't last an hour You better stop breaking our bones You better stop wrecking our homes You better stop stealing our lands Beware of the anger of the innocent Because in Palestine There are people trying Just to live their life in peace Though they're occupied You can't control their lives Because they're fighting to be free It's a tragedy of inhumanity Would you rather close your eyes? Can't go on this way Just wake up someday Or you will have to pay the price People of the world beware of Zionism It's a racist ideology like National Socialism United Nations Resolution 3379 You wiped it from the records but not from our minds We will never give up We're ready for the fight Never give up Beloved Palestine Never give up The struggle to survive We're rising up To rescue Palestine We will never give up We're ready for the fight Never give up Beloved Palestine We're rising up Intifadah We're rising up Intifadah
