I have always believed that the crisis and war in Gaza are more than just a religious conflict. It is a crisis of humanity that warrants the attention and concern of every man and woman who upholds peace as a core value in his heart, regardless of his religion, race, colour, and nationality.

This song by Michael Heart represents our enduring spirit against adversity, that our nations and properties and lives may be destroyed, but we will not go down. Here you go.

Michael Heart – We Will Not Go Down

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
