You say we are poor
But you have stolen our houses and lands
You say we are dirty
But you have ruined our wells
You say we live in squalor
But you have herded us into filthy camps
You say we are ignorant
But you have closed our schools and deported our teachers
You say our faith has held us in oppression
But itís not our faith
Who is it, holding us in oppression
And stealing our water, our lives?
Who is it, taking our possessions
†And holding us hostage?
Who is it, forcing our kids to learn in stifling tents
Instead of a comfortable school?
That would be you, O Israel!
That would only be you!
