The Jewish-Arab Peace Song (w/ English subtitles)

One of the best “peace” songs I have ever heard. Peace cannot be had until terrorism is expunged from our midst. However, at the same time we cannot be too naive and must realize that there are many that want Israel obliterated off the map “just because.” As long as the “Palestinian” mantra is “Itbach El Yahud” peace ain’t gonna happen.

Quoted from the YouTube video page:

How do you make this song a reality? To be sure, singing songs about peace will not bring peace. But reading about the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, visiting the conflict area and talking to the people on the ground are concrete steps that can make a difference.
In this song, Jewish-Israeli and Palestinian singers and musicians joined together to perform the Hebrew-Arabic song “Hevenu Shalom Aleinu” (We Brought Peace Upon Us) – “Ma Ana Ajmal Min Salam” (There is Nothing More Beautiful Than Peace). Sung in both Hebrew and Arabic, this Middle Eastern, Sepharadic-style, jazzy and inspiring song challenges us to rise above the propaganda, renounce hatred, supremacy, violence, and terrorism, and “rock the boat” until Israelis and Palestinians understand there is only one path to security and peace, and that is through sharing the land and upholding the human rights of all inhabitants of the Holy Land.

This song is dedicated to the thousands of ordinary people around the world, including many Jews, who are helping to promote human rights, equality and justice.

Thank you for listening! Shamai Leibowitz
