Hear, Oh Israel

Hear, Oh Israel
The Lord, our God, the Lord is Love.

 The ancient creed falls on deaf ears
on the West Bank.
It's brother against brother in Jerusalem.
Oppression is a table now turned
in Galilee and Gaza.

 From the land of milk and honey
flows the blood of militarism.
Zion knows only survival
as she scrawls her newest testament
with the tears of the nationless.

 From Babylon's gardens to Hitler's hell
have wandered the children of Abraham
to a land called Armageddon
once foretold by Israel's prophets.
