Your Land is Our Land

Back in 1940 Woodie Guthrie penned one of America's most beautiful and favorite folk songs - "This land is your land".

Decades later - and with a little help from their friends - the song has been rewritten by a succession of Israeli Prime Ministers.

As walls separate Palestinians from their lands and livelihoods, and bulldozers turn homes into piles of rubble, the song rings out loud and clear for everyone to hear - except of course, those who for their own agendas, do not want to hear.

'Your land is our land"

And another hungry child is born in the Gaza Ghetto.

Wherever you may be - be safe
