An old man is proud
but behind his modest smile lies the grief
Only one picture of his brave son remains

It seems that the vicious circle
Can never be broken through

The hopeful ones gathered their strength
To achieve the apparent impossible
But all plans seem to be in vain

As a soldier of Allah
He's an example for the others
On his bloody way to immortality

It seems that the vicious circle
Can never be broken through
Because old wounds are reopened every time

This Intifada as a device
To thwart the peace negotiations

He can rely on a reward in the hereafter
Eternal paradise awaits him

Pugnacity
With our blood
Show no mercy
With our soul
Die for heaven
An eye for an eye
Burn to let them...
Suffer for all their actions

We will not move an inch
They won't play in our hands
We will not tolerate those who defy

We will not hesitate
To start an attack
If you undermine the agreement

Let them suffer!
Stop to let them suffer!

    General CommentThe Male voice around 4:34 sounds like:
    The beast, that (was) postponed today,
    gives us hope, that the hope the children born today,
    will never know war between us, and their mothers,
    That know no sorrow,
    Allow me to end, by the simple words,

    General CommentIt's actually:

    The peace that was born today gives us all the hope that the children born today will never know war between us and their mothers will know no sorrow.
    Allow me to end by the simple words:
    Shalom, Salaam, Peace

    It's from the "Address by Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin at the signing ceremony of the Treaty of Peace between the State of Israel and the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan"

    Sounds like the song is about the tension in the Middle East, fundamentalism and how war affects people
