Are we on the eve of destruction?

An increase in military budget of ten percent.

While tens of thousands go hungry, get sicker, suffer still more ill health.

Oh, Jerusalem, if only you know what makes for peace.

Those politicians are bearing false witness.

The people are gathering to resist.

Oh, Jerusalem if only you know what makes for peace.

The babies are hungry.

And the mothers are tired…

Tired of working two shifts.

And they are not able to cover the expenses.

Expenses for another nuclear bomb or more war implements.

Destructive war implements that will destroy other mother’s children.

The money is snatched from the mouth of babes.

For unending war, death, destruction.

Oh, Jerusalem, if only you know what makes for peace.
