Sighting: A Lioness of Palestine

By Nahida Exiled Palestinien

مخيف و مهول

Fearsome and Awesome

Lionness of Palestine.1

This little fist of yours

Slams before the world

The final word

This little fist of yours

Says it all

RIGHT is GREATER than MIGHT

أنظر إليك… يا حبيبتي

أنظر إليك

قبضتك الصغيرة… هذه القبضة

تضرب أمام العالم… كل العالم

تنطق بالكلمة النهائية

تقولها كاملة

الحق أقوى من القوة

Before your magnificence

They bow down

Lost… Defeated… Humiliated…

Drenched in shame

في حضرة روعتك

يطأطئون الرؤوس

ضائعون… مدحورون… مذللون…

يغلفهم العار

Lionness of Palestine.2

The sparkle in your eyes

BLAZING 

FIRE

Burns deep

Renders them to ashes;

Soulless shadows

Void of life

Void of love

Void of heart

Remnants of human beings

They wither away

البريق في عينيك

نار متأججة

تحرق بالعمق

إلى رماد تحيلهم،

ظلال بلا حياة

بلا حياة

بلا حب

بلا قلب

بقايا بشر

تذبل وتشيخ 

Lionness of Palestine.3

Before your magnificence

They bow down

Lost… Defeated… Humiliated…

Drenched in shame

Lionness of Palestine.4-1

Humanity you embody

Dignity you teach

Wonders you inspire

Tall you stand, my sweetheart

Tall you stand

الانسانية تمثلين

العظمة تعلمين

الروعة توحين

شاهقةً تقفين… يا حبيبة القلب

شاهقةً تقفين…

Lionness of Palestine.5

What mother of glory gave birth to you

O great daughter of Palestine!

أية أم مجيدة أنجبتك

يا ابنة فلسطين العظيمة أنت!!!

أي

Lionness of Palestine.6

Your Tears

عبراتك

Lionness of Palestine.7
Your pain

آلامك

Lionness of Palestine.8

Your sacrifice

تضحياتك

 Lionness of Palestine.9

A Wake Up call

To a sleepy world

A zombie world

A beaten world

Who forgot what it means to be alive

دعوة لليقظة

لعالم يغط في النوم

عالم في غيبوبة

عالم مدحور

عالم نسي معنى الحياة

Lionness of Palestine.10

Lift your fist

Shake your wrist

Move the world

Beloved daughter of Palestine

ارفعي قبضتك

هزي زندك

حركي العالم

يا ابنة فلسطين الحبيبة

 Lionness of Palestine.11

Hear her ROAR…World

Hear her roar

Hold her heart

Kiss at her feet

Hear her roar

Be filled with Awe

استمع لها تجأر… العالم

استمع لها تجأر…

تحسس قلبها

قبل قدميها

امتلأ بالروعة

See for yourself this brave Palestinian girl………and one will witness:

You don’t have to know Arabic to understand her. Her father is in Israeli jail for being a Palestinian activist. Her mother has been recently released. The little girl tells Israeli soldiers: For every Palestinian olive tree that you uproot, we will plant one hundred trees.

WE SHALL NOT FORGET AND WE SHALL NOT FORGIVE
لن ننسى ولن نغفر
