The truth cannot be silenced

A new song by Leon Rosselson

Die gedanken sind frei, my thoughts freely flower
It’s everyone’s right to speak truth to power
Truth cannot be silenced by threats or by violence
No-one can deny, die gedanken sind frei.

It’s my right to maintain Jews are not a nation
And the Zionist state is a cruel aberration
And if Zionist critics cry antisemitic
I say that they lie. Die gedanken sind frei.

The Zionist lobby they smear and they libel
Care nothing for justice, their values are tribal
Concocting excuses for Israel’s abuses
Free speech they decry but die gedanken sind frei.

I say Israel’s crimes are not in my name
It steals land, it steals water, no conscience, no shame.
It murders, it tortures, yet Israel’s supporters
Just turn a blind eye. Die gedanken sind frei.

Die gedanken sind frei, my thoughts freely flower
It’s everyone’s right to speak truth to power
Truth must not be silenced by threats or by violence
No-one can deny, die gedanken sind frei.

A musical challenge to the antizionism = antisemitism lobby.
Based on Die Gedanken Sind Frei [Thoughts are Free] as sung by Pete Seeger.
