I am also you
and you are me
we are one and we
belong to each other
for we are brothers
aren’t we?

Please don’t kill me, brother!
I also have a family
my wife Sarah Kadijah,
my daughters Rebecca
Merriam and Rachel
and my little boy Salaam —
we’re a poor family —
peasants of Gaza.

Please don’t kill me, brother!
I also believe in One True God —
YHVH, El, Yeshua, Allah —
in God who has many names —
for sure He has many names right?
For He is God almighty!
the Father of us all!

Brother, God is life!
Isn’t He? And He is peace!
Shalom, salaam and shanti!
Peace, peace and peace!
Peace, peace and peace!
So please don’t kill me!
Please don’t kill me!
I am an image Dei —
a selem-demut of Elohim
the Sixth commandment
is for all of us!

I am also you
and you are me
we are one and we
belong to each other
for we are brothers
aren’t we?
