Right of Return – Doc Jazz
Uploaded on Dec 17, 2011
Music video by Doc Jazz, for the song ‘Right of Return’, released on December 17th, 2011.
This song is a musical response to the words of Ben Gurion he spoke in 1948 about the expulsion of over 800,000 Palestinians from their homeland:”The old will die, and the young will forget”.
This song shows the world that the young have not forgotten, and will not forget. They have kept their Palestinian identity alive, and their determination to never abandon their inalienable Right of Return.
At the beginning of the video you hear the voice of Yasser Arafat, in an excerpt from his famous speech to the United Nations in 1974. Translation: “They see in the Palestinian child, and in the Palestinian tree, an enemy they must get rid of.”
After that there is a voice clip from Mahmoud Darwish, from his poem ‘Aaberoon’. “In our land, we have what we do. And here, we have our history, and we have the first sound of life. Ours is the present … the present and the future.”
Just like you were meant to be
Though your roots dig deep into the land
They were uprooted by a savage handBut the ties were forged through centuries
A bond so strong and fixed in history
You are the land and the land is you
A solid unity they never can undoCherish your leaves, let your branches bear your fruits
All you need to do is protect and feed your rootsThe old will die, but the young will learn
The road is long and it will twist and turn
But when you know your destiny
You know where you need to be
And we always will believe
It’s our Right to Return-Black on white they wrote that vow
But to act on it was not allowed
Empty words like a carrot on a stick
Ink is fading as the clock goes on to tickDispossession and racial oppression
Every psycho form of Zionist aggression
Was condoned by that very same force
Though they say our rights are still endorsedWe don’t need your words, they’re just empty talk
Why don’t you just keep on talking while we walk the walkThe old have died, but the young are strong
We know who we are and where we belong
With the key in our hand
We’ll come home to our land
We know we will always stand
for our Right of Return
