Merry Christmas in Video

From Rabi Bashour – In this time of year, people around the world celebrate the birth of Jesus in Bethlehem Palestine. They celebrate a birth that was meant to propagate a set of ideals to make the world a better place. 2010 years later, that same birthplace is plagued by a regime that practices the exact opposite of those ideals. Bethlehem is surrounded by a racist wall of biblical proportions, by regime which is racist to biblical proportions. Yet people celebrate.

The people of Palestine also celebrate. They need to, as any other people would need to celebrate. After all it is the season to make exceptions. In this season, people make exceptions when it comes to their spending, to their diets, to the way they treat each other. So it is only logical to make an exception by putting an effort for the land, the homes and people of the birthplace of Christmas… for justice in Palestine see the video below.

ON HIS BIRTHDAY IN 2010

ONE CAN ONLY WONDER

IF HE WAS HERE TODAY

WHAT WOULD HE SAY

HE MAY ASK HIM NOT TO THROW THAT STONE

HE MAY ASK HER TO TURN THE LEFT CHEEK

BUT AFTER HE SEES THIS THIS AND THAT

HE WOULD CRY IN ANGER AND DISMAY

THIS IS MY HOME

THINGS HAVE GONE ASTRAY

HOW CAN THIS INJUSTICE BE?

IN THIS LAND

UNDER THIS TREE

HE WOULD ASK HIM TO BE PATIENT

HE WOULD ASK HER NOT TO LOSE HOPE

HE WOULD ASK THEM TO PERSEVERE

O PEOPLE OF PALESTINE

THOU SHALT NOT DESPAIR

THOU SHALT NOT SURRENDER

FOR LOVE, JUSTICE AND PEACE

FOR ME

YOU SHALL PREVAIL
