Whose war is it?

Reader comment on item: Israel Has a War to Win

Submitted by John Marlin (United States), Jul 28, 2006 at 11:30

Yesterday

(Brit voice)

Yesterday

All we had to fear was the IRA

Now the jihadis are here to stay

We remember yesterday

(French voice)

Hier-sterday

Les gendarmes n'ont peur de rien sacre

Maintenant ils ne peuvent personne proteger

Je n'oublis pas hier-sterday

Plus le meme chose, le moins changer

Ou quelque chose comme ca, je veux parler….

(Canadian voice)

Yesterday

Overtime might mean the Yanks and Jays

Now our time's spent watching… I can't say

Oh, I remember yesterday, eh?

(Indian voice)

Yesterday

The western peoples called Mumbai Bombay

It is bloodied now, no matter how they say

The ISI has reached our way

I remember yesterday

Why they hate us so I do know, and I will say

Some Mo long ago called us Kuffir, and it's been that way

(Australian voice)

Yesterday

Me mates would hit Bali on holiday

But backpack bombs blew all that fun away

I remember yesterday

(Spanish voice)

Yesterday

Queen Isabella slapped mosquitos away

But new Andalusians blew up our subways

Ain't that some bullcrap now? Ole!

They remember yesterday

(Russian voice)

Yesterday

Those swine attacked our kids at school, first day

Not satisfied to interrupt a play

Cold comfort when we finally made them pay

Still, we remember yesterday

(New Yorker's voice)

Yesterday

Some camel jockeys thought they'd make a trade

Our two tall towers for two of their lands invaded

And "Religion of Peace" exposed as a charade

Let's not forget that Yesterday

(Jewish voice)

Yesterday

A mad poet took our book away

There's no "Thou art the man" when told his way

Poor choice in editing, I'd say

Suddenly

They're not half the men they used to be

Blood spot and crater where their shoes should be

Those damned Shahids relieve themselves that way

Can't wait ‘til that's so yesterday
