The Lyrics

This Camp David Accords era, anti-peace treaty folk song was originally released in 1979, then was covered in the mid Eighties for the movie, "The Trial of Mullah Barack"*
Listen, Arabs to a hadeeth
That was uttered long ago
By the Man who went to the mountain
To Medinan folk below
In Medina were two Jew tribes
Driven out, for they did spurn
All the teachings of the Prophet
Yet they swore they would return

Go ahead, love the Zionists
Go ahead and be their friend
Do it in the name of World Peace
We'll all pay for it in the end
There won't be any white doves floating
O'er the Pit of Fire
On the blazing morning after
One grim Prophet vents his ire

So the children of the Jew tribes
Came to reclaim Palestine
And this shocked the Arab people
Zionist plot they did malign
Came an answer from the Jew tribes
With all Arabs we will share
All the freedoms of our nation
All the bounty developed there

Now the Arabs were rejoicing
No more hardships, peaceful path
And they embraced the Jewish people
Soon to earn Al Mahdi's wrath
Comes now rains and winds of fire
To make the living envy the dead
And the Mahdi appeared before them ...
"Kill the Jews" ....

Was all he said

Go ahead love the Zionists
Go ahead and be as friends
Do it in the name of World Peace
We'll all pay for it in the end
There won't be any white doves floating
O'er the Pit of Fire
On the blazing morning after
One grim Prophet vents his ire

Go ahead love the Zionists
Go ahead and be their friend
Do it in the name of World Peace
We'll all pay for it in the end
There won't be any white doves floating
Above the Pit of Fire
On the blazing morning after
One grim Prophet vents his ire

(Cue up concluding, irony laden flute and drummer boy duet
Do doo do do .. doo doo; Do doo do do ... doo doo
Do do do do .. do doo do. da do da do da Dooo Daaa Dooo ... Ding!)
*And no, I am not insinuating that Barack Obama is a closet muslim. Barack is simply the only Pseudo-Arabic name that rhymes with "Jack"

Let the record show that the peace brokered by President Carter still holds. Let the record also show that Carter created more jobs per year than any President since -- including Clinton, and a hell of a lot more than Reagan. And in case you've forgotten, a once (and future?) Prime Minister of Israel was named Ehud Barak. And don't tell us what you're insinuating: You right-wingers go well beyond insinuation. Ask Osama bin Laden if Barack Obama is a "closet Muslim." Oh, that's right, you can't -- because he's dead. He did things in the name of heaven, and he got a big surprise in the end. That you used this base song is as offensive as everything else you do on this site.

I interpret the song as a warning from extremists to Muslim leaders who attempt to make peace with Israel. Muhammad Anwar al Sadat paid with his life for the Camp David peace treaty. President Jimmy Carter was belatedly awarded the Nobel Peace Prize for brokering an enduring peace between Israel and Egypt, and for subsequent efforts in the cause. I might ask what Barack Obama did, or has done since, to deserve this same honor?

Settle down, Michael. Not only do I NOT insinuate that Obama is a Muslim, I will go further and state that anyone who thinks so is a moron. He's about as as much a Muslim as he is a Christian. No, his true place of worship is the mirror in the Presidential Bedroom

BTW, I don't know how anyone can read an attack on Jimmy Carter's Middle East peace initiatives from this. My only intent was to take "One Tin Soldier", one of the cheesiest, hippy dippiest songs to ever afflict the airwaves of North America, and turn it completely on its head. I mention Camp David simply because it occurred in the same time period as the original song

When the status quo is ossified and stratified, the drums need to be played...
