Just stop 

How can the world keep on turning, 
How can our leaders ignore 
The thousands of souls who are dying, 
At the merciless hands of foes far from our shores.

How can we sleep with the knowing, 
That our roars of disgust are ignored.
How can we rise and not recognise 
That great Evil is ruling abroad!

We cannot deny 
What's in front of our eyes, 
As Allies cut aid
Because Israel lies. 

And all aid for their victims
Is now "put to the sword"
By the fury and greed 
Of the Zionists' Lord!

We shall never forgive
The Murderers of a People. 
We shall never forget 
the Cruelty of the Guilty.

Or the blood on the hands
Of complicit sellers of death!
Don't look now. It's the end of the world.
The end of our Humanity.
