God is not the state of Israel

God is not the state of Israel

by Alan McGuire

He is not the bombs that drop
on sleeping children
prisoners being starved of hope
women hoping for rain and water
the olive tree witnessing 76 years of destruction

if we could stop the fire,
what would be his use?
so many of you
muslim, jew
a battle to the death
benefits no-one
yet we sing of rivers and seas
but not in harmony
and we will not cease until
Palestine is free

viva Palestine!
viva the international working class!
viva al-andalus, future
present and past!
