A Hindi Christma Carol~Do Read the Words in English as You Listen!
Beautifully Performed by Sting~Who Knew?
Hallelujah! Choir of King’s College, Cambridge
The Jewish singer, Yaakov Shwekey is well known in Israel, North America and indeed around the world.
This is his latest song and it is guaranteed to touch the heart of everyone who believes that the world is in the hands of the Lord.
The symbolism begins with the tragedy of the many terror attacks Israel has been through~while the orange wrist band (around 1:20) symbolizes the 10,000 Jews who lost their homes and livelihood when they were pulled out of Gush Katif (now occupied by terror group Hamas). I am sure that most of us identify with the suffering of broken families and the joy at the return of kidnapped soldier Gilad Shalit. Finally, with the threat of nuclear attack by Iran, the tiny pieces of paper from the Kotel (Wailing Wall), representing people who travel from around the world~to place their prayers into the cracks of the wall~rise up to the heavens…
I will leave it for you to interpret the final notes~but do make sure you have tissues on hand.
The song below is from a Diamond Rio concert in Las Vegas. It received an immediate, resounding standing ovation (every time it is performed!) Now the punch line…
Major radio stations wouldn’t play it because it was considered “politically incorrect”. Consequently, the song has never been released to the public.
Apparently your president, B-Hussein-O is saying that it is not fit for release because it offends some. So please listen and let us know: Is this song offensive?
* Hat Tip to Bare Naked Islam
Most sane people would agree that anyone who could slaughter a newborn and toss it in the garbage is sick–yet in Pakistan, over 1,200 newborns were killed and dumped last year. Why? The full story is on Bare Naked Islam blog. From 2002 to 2011 the USA alone has given 11.740 billion dollars in Military aid to Pakistan and a further 6.08 billion dollars in Economic aid. Maybe they should start channeling some of that Military money to education~such as killing newborn babies just because they happen to be female is wrong…
