On
these recent days, we get offered frequently with news telling the most
recent situation in Gaza. Soon after working, then I turn on my TV,
watching for news. Again, most of them are still telling about Gaza.

Sounds
horrible to hear and watch the video displaying hundreds of civilians
laid on the ground. Nothing can we do from here, so I write this matter
today after being inspired by a song entitled We Will Not Go Down.

Quite interesting song; hence makes me eager to review it, at least at a glance.

“We
Will Not Go Down” was composed by Michael Heart. When I skimmed his
homepage on www.michaelheart.com, surely I don’t even know who this man.
In fact, he states that he is a pop/rock singer, but why I don’t know
him. Perhaps, my knowledge on the rock world is a mere shortage.

First
time hearing a word “Gaza” on that song, I was eerie. Gaza has become a
limelight of the world right now. Many people, who even never pay
attention to this city before, now are turning their heads to Gaza as
the massive publication on the news.
As
well as this song, I bet that Michael Heart also never heard to this
city before this humanitarian crisis. Then I was impressed upon his song
that shouts honestly about the empathy for the suffering of Gaza
people. That is a plain expression of westerner about Gaza conflict.

I
deeply appreciate his effort to compose this song. But, the situation
is seemingly to remain for a long run. When many people are crying and
expressing their empathy for the Gaza people, the Israeli military will
never stop eradicating the Gaza people.
The
United States of America, as a country that usually delivers its lesson
on democracy through war and military invasion, will always be giving
tacit backing to its brother Israel. The US people’s aspiration as what
Michael Heart did will never come to the ear of the US big bosses.

Worse,
nothing do we see any calling from the Arab world for immediate
ceasefire; something that really really disappoints me. If you think the
UN might be able to stop this humanitarian crisis, you are a little bit
wrong.

The UN is powerless right now. I just send my prayer for
the Gaza people to God now as I, as well as thousands of people out
there, cannot do anything except praying.

Let’s do we send the
universal messages to the world that the Israel must soon withdraw its
troops from Gaza, and never stop praying for a better situation in Gaza,
now and after conflict.

Israel and America are the Real Terrorists.
Pure and Simple.
