“We don’t target civilians”
I’m sick of Israeli lies
Why so many children with bullet holes right between their eyes?
Looking up lifeless
More victims of Israeli violence
Freed from lives of suffocation in a humanitarian crisis
‘Hamas hides weapons’
Is that why these kids die?
Limp bodies in playgrounds still holding money for their rides?
Or is it the Israeli policy of targetting the innocent?
Bombed from air, land and sea – collective punishment
Target children playing football on a beach
‘Most moral army on Earth’ doesn’t practice what it preach
Yet another funeral procession
Guaranteed to escape mention
Especially since MH17 has got the world’s attention
Parents grieve, they outlived their children
They don’t care now if Israel kills themThey cry out in pain to Allah,
Ya Rabb! Ash-shaheed habibullah!
No chance for them to say goodbye
Even Israel admits the Torah says an eye for an eye
White phosphorus, flechette bombs, artillery shells
Turn Gaza into what seems like a living hell
Another day. Another temporary ceasefire broken
Most moral army on Earth? You must be joking
‘Israel wants peace, it’s all Hamas’ fault’
Like a rapist accusing the victim of aggravated assault
‘Don’t blame us. Hamas use human shields’
Is that an excuse to turn Gaza into a killing field?
Israel tell us to evacuate when there’s nowhere to run
Then they target innocents running with their loved ones
Killed by falling masonry if the missiles don’t get you
They even target ambulances that come to the rescue
Target funerals and graves and first responders
Target you through GPS so switch off the phone transponders
Babies in maternity die from power cuts
Their deaths ignored – the mass media has no guts
Even if Hamas hid weapons in the homes of civilians
How can that ever justify carpet bombing 1.8 million
panicked and terrified innocent refugees
trapped between Israel, Egypt and the deep blue sea?
‘We don’t occupy Gaza’. ‘We left in ’05’
Israel built prison walls to trap civilians inside
With a siege that’s run since ’07
Forget Hamas for a second.
If you lived in Gaza would you pick up a weapon?
Even a stone against IDF troops in tanks?
To defend your malmourished family and your refugee camp?
Is it better to live on your knees or to die on your feet?
Every Gilad Shalit brings Israel closer to defeat
66 years of illegal occupation
You’re heartless if you don’t join in with the condemnation
Israel started this with ethnic cleansing in ’48
Displaced 700,000 Arabs to make their own state
Invaded Gaza in ’08, 2012 and 2014
Hamas stopped most rockets, that’s what ceasefire means
But Israel didn’t stop the siege or stop stealing the land
Airstrikes in June this year were all part of the plan
Yet another ceasefire that Israel’s betrayed
To provoke Qassam rocket fire so it could invade
Build public support and public rage
To flatten Gaza and invade for days
Pin the blame on Hamas for 3 kidnapped Jews
Watch Israeli mobs kidnap and burn innocent youths
Destroy the new Unity Government of Fatah and Hamas
To maintain the status quo and diplomatic impasse
While the US, UK and UN mouth excuses
Deep down everybody knows exactly what the truth is
Israel will steal even more land while the silent world watches
And invade next year blaming more homemade Hamas rockets
Is it really enough to highlight the evil?
Do we think highlighting evil will liberate the people?
No, we should all be working for Muslims to unite
1.5 billion, nuclear armed, let’s see who wants a fight
Now you might think that’s unlikely, unrealistic
You might be an geopolitical analyst with facts and statistics
but know that victory is promised to the believers
That an Islamic Army will take Israel to the cleaners
Israel is weak, has no strategic depth
Who cares if it has advanced weapons from the West
if the men holding them have no heart?
If bottle rockets and stones can tear their economy apart?
Israel claims God gave them the promised land
but the IDF fear fighting Palestinians hand-to-hand
Any other nation on Earth would’ve quit already
In Gaza, despite the death toll their eimaan is steady
Israeli public opinion wavers whenever a soldier dies
Cowards don’t sound like they have the Almighty on their side
They love life, fear death
We’ll defend Gaza even if nothing’s left
Boycotts are good, paint Israel as a pariah
but if Allah (SWT) Grants results why don’t you aim higher?
That Egypt opens the border at the Rafah Crossing
So that civilians can escape all the death and bombing
Go further, that Muslim soldiers defy their orders
That Israel sees Islamic armies at its borders
That Israel quits at the first chance it gets
Begging for mercy, quoting history and Islamic texts
The world watches stunned as al-Aqsa is liberated
All over the world the victory is celebrated
It’s clear the only way to stop Israel is with an army for an army
What? I’ll speak the haqq, I don’t care if they harm me
