David Rovics – Jenin

Reading the Amnesty report into Cast Lead, Israel’s criminal excursion into Gaza in late December 2008 brought to mind an apt song, Jenin by David Rovics.

I remember listening to this for the first time a few months ago in the car. I remember it starting off and then getting darker and darker and as the last few verses appeared my mind was thinking:

Oh
My
God
No!

I did actually turn it off before the end initially but a few minutes later managed to listen all the way through.

A very powerful song. Do listen although I won’t say ‘Enjoy’.
