“We Teach Life, Sir”: Palestinian Spoken Word Poet On The Gaza Bombings

Rafeef Ziadah, a Canadian-Palestinian spoken word artist and activist, performs a poem in response to a journalist who asks “don’t you think it would all be better if you just stop teaching your children to hate”.

Her debut CD Hadeel is dedicated to Palestinian youth, who still fly kites in the face of F16 bombers, who still remember the names of their villages in Palestine and still hear the sound of Hadeel (cooing of doves) over Gaza.
