A blinding flash of white light
Lit up the sky over Gaza tonight
People running for cover
Not knowing whether they're dead or alive

They came with their tanks and their planes
With ravaging fiery flames
And nothing remains
Just a voice rising up in the smoky haze

We will not go down
In the night, without a fight
You can burn up our mosques and our homes and our schools
But our spirit will never die
We will not go down
In Gaza tonight

Women and children alike
Murdered and massacred night after night
While the so-called leaders of countries afar
Debated on who's wrong or right

But their powerless words were in vain
And the bombs fell down like acid rain
But through the tears and the blood and the pain
You can still hear that voice through the smoky haze

We will not go down
In the night, without a fight
You can burn up our mosques and our homes and our schools
But our spirit will never die
We will not go down
In Gaza tonight

    I've just recently heard this song, and i thought of my country usa.and how it has taken such turn for the worse at every level politically, spiritually, morally,in every way. Then i realized the lyrics were of palestinians,who have been oppressed fighting not only to exist but to survive as a nation of peoples, and not very many peoples care at all, i wept.

    Praise be to God! What a beautiful song! May God Almighty grant a just and peaceful solution to the Israeli-Palestinian dispute and end the suffering of the people of the Gaza Strip and West Bank. Ameen (Amen). Peace and God bless.

    Aku mengamati semua sahabat, dan tidak menemukan sahabat yang lebih baik daripada menjaga lidah. Saya memikirkan tentang semua pakaian, tetapi tidak menemukan pakaian yang lebih baik daripada takwa. Aku merenungkan tentang segala jenis amal baik, namun tidak mendapatkan yang lebih baik daripada memberi nasihat baik. Aku mencari segala bentuk rezki, tapi tidak menemukan rezki yang lebih baik daripada sabar. (umar bin kattab) sing sabarnyaa ^^
    do not ever give up >.

    Bersabarlah palestine, tetap semangat melawan manusia yg ta' punya hati seperti mereka. Allah tidak akan diam melihat umatnya dijajah ia pasti akan memberikan balasan yg setimpal atas perbuatan mereka.
    Yakin dan percayalah!!!
    Tidak akan selamanya israel tertawa pasti akan ada kesedihan yg datang entah itu cepat atau lambat. Tapi pasti kan datang kepadanya.
