Sleepless in Selangor

I find it very hard to sleep. How does one sleep when there are others being bombed right in their own homes and children massacre as though they are nothing but flies? I tell you, if the Palestinians had been  some dolphins or whales or pandas or orang utans, the whole wide world will be in utter anguish and crying and international animal rights movements will zoom in faster than one could sneeze. OR, if these Palestinians had been anglo saxon British or American children out there on the streets bombed and killed mercilessly. It would be World War. Unfortunately, they are Palestinians and in this hypocritical world that we live in now, Palestinians lives mean nothing, as long as the Zionist Israeli get their way and can continue to control the world.

My song for the moment is from my favourite music dude, M.Nasir. Masirah. It’s eerie now listening to it amidst watching the news and reading the news headlines on the ongoings in Gazza. Gazza makes all my problems seem way too tiny.

Please do your bit for them. Even if it means praying on time each day and earnestly making a sincere prayer for them.

Masirah

Suara duka angin Gazza
Gegar jantung bumi kita
Nyawa anak di hujung senjata
Tangisan bonda hanya sia-sia

Masirah anak al-durrah
Netzarim bermandi darah
Begitu megah mata memandang dusta
Masirah dalam amarah
Hilang kalam kebenaran
Kudrat alam hanya menjadi rebutan

Berbaris-barislah ke satu arah
Jangan sampai berpisah menyusun langkah
Mencari-cari erti kedamaian
Di dalam jiwa tersirat jawapan

Masirah anak al-durrah
Netzarim lambang perjuangan
Kita menanti tangan pembelaan

Masirah dalam amarah
Hilang kalam kebenaran
Kudrat alam hanya menjadi rebutan

Masirah anak al-durrah
Netzarim lambang perjuangan
Kita menanti (kita menanti) tangan pembelaan
Masih menanti tangan pembelaan
