Theme Song for the DiasporaMP3 support required.

"Let my people stay." That is the title to a poignant hymn written by Cecelia Margules and Rami Yadid in protest to the evacuation of the entire Jewish presence in Gush Katif (part of Israel's Gaza region) and certain areas of Samaria in Yesha. That evacuation, which we call The Third Diaspora, began on August 14, 2005.

The Lyrics

Here are the words to their piece. I've posted them in the color orange because that color is being used by Israelis as the official protest color. Do recall, won't you please, that the color orange is used to identify prison clothing here in the United States...

Let My People Stay

In a place called Gush-Katif
He stands in disbelief.
The boy looks sadly all around
Beneath the blinding sun.
 

I was born and here I grew;
The waves the sea the sandy dunes.
Now they say I must leave
The only home I knew.
 

We live here my friends and I.
For here we do belong.
Can you look into our eyes?
All hopes and dreams will die.
 

Can we forsake the flowers?
Could we leave the fragrant trees?
The gardens of our fathers
And the fields of velvet green?
 

Let my people stay!
Let my people stay!
Don't break our heart,
Tear us apart!
Don't take our light away!
Let my people stay!
Let my people stay!
 

I'm walking without fear.
My faith and courage ever strong.
God gave this land to us,
He turned the sand to seed.
 

Still I feel unease with dawn,
Never really sure.
And a shadow pales the rising sun,
And a shiver deep inside
 

A sudden blast in the night,
Glaring eyes of hate.
Every road, every turn,
What will be our fate?
 

Can we forsake the flowers?
Could we leave the fragrant trees?
The gardens of our fathers
And the fields of velvet green?
 

Let my people stay!
Let my people stay!
Don't break our heart!
Tear us apart!

Don't take our light away!
Let my people stay!
Let my people stay!
