The Hope - Subliminal & Shadow

The following video expresses alot of my feelings and experiences that I had while serving as volunteer in Israel during the time of the intifada. Alot of times there were road blogs and bomb alarms, helicopters were flying around to hospitals or to the westbank. In the news you saw the hatred in the arab news, the hatred of the people on both sides. When there were times where I was very close experiencing what a bus blast of a suicide bomber means. I saw how people cry, were sad, sitting around in cyrcles and discussing what happened. Hovewer the hope for peace never declined and it got even stronger each day and each event that wanted to put you down, making you hopeless and hatefull. In the end peace is right there, both sides just need to want it and touch it with their fingers as the following song mentions it...







Ani raiti kama hem halchu
yoter midai mehem lo chazru
chaverim nif'redu, batim nishberu
dmaot shel mishpachot nishpechu

Nitsanim shel anashim, prachim shelo yifrechu
hatikvah berashenu, ahavah benafshenu,
hachalom beruchenu az le'ad namshich bedarkenu.

Ne'elmah la had'mamah, shuv kolot hamilchamah,
od chayal chozer atuf bemah? bedegel hamedinah
dam vedim'ah nisfagim ba'adamah
Od imah hamumah, nisharah lah rak tmunah,
t'tikvah balev noel, im chazak lo nitkapel,
ki lo nolad haben zonah sheya'atsor et yisrael.

Ten li t'tikvah lekabel ma she'ein
et hakoach leshanot ma sheken.

Bo'u namshich hachaim lefaneinu
lo meuchar ki machar yom chadash
hachalom yigava im ne'abed et hatikvah
az hoshitu yad l'ahavah.

Hevtachtem yonah, barakia yesh ayit,
achi, sarpad ra'il okets ze lo ale shel zait,
chaim bachalom, kulam medabrim al shalom
aval yurim, loch'tsim, mosh'chim, soch'tim, t'ha'edek

ba'olam shel piguim, anasim tmimim od medabrim
chaim be'ashlayat hatsedek,
hem marchivim ba'em et hasedek.

Over teruf yomyomi kdei lisrod,
lo rotseh lichyot kdei lehilachem,
s'av nilcham kdei lichyot
not'a tikvah, mesharish shorshim,
magen begufi al hachalom
shelo yitnapets lerasisim
dai, maspim im hake'ev maspik im hadramah
shanah ha'adamah medamemet lo nema, velamah?

Ten li t'atikvah lekabel ma she'ein
et hakoach leshanot ma sheken.

bou namshich hachaim lefaneinu
lo meuchar ki machar yom chadash
hachalom yegava im ne'abed et hatikvah
az hoshitu yad l'ahavah.

Elohim, ten li t'atikvah lekabel ma she'ein
et haomets lenasot letaken et haolam.

bou namshich hachaim lefaneinu
lo meuchar ki machar yom chadash
hachalom yegava im ne'abed et hatikvah
az hoshitu yad l'ahavah.

Elohim, ten li t'atikvah lekabel ma she'ein
Ten li et hakoach leshanot et ma sheken.
et haomets lenasot letaken et ha'olam.

Bou namshich hachaim lefaneinu
lo meuchar ki machar yom chadash
hachalom yegava im ne'abed et hatikvah
az hoshitu yad l'ahavah.
