Subject: Lyr Req: An Phailistin (Irish Gaelic)
From: GUEST,Philippa

I've been hearing this song on the radio quite a bit. Roisín Elsafty sings it and her mother Treasa Ní Cheannabháin wrote the lyrics. (Elsafty is Roisín's father's surname; he's from Egypt)

I just did a web search to find out what recording the song "An Phailistín" is on: Sharon Shannon & Friends - Libertango

I also came across an interesting article in Irish World

The Sharon Shannon album cover does not include lyrics, which include both Irish and Egyptian (Egyptian Arabic, I presume)- so the latter will have to be transliterated here, though I would like to have both transliteration and Arabic lettering (I don't suppose the server will support the latter?)

The song has also been released as a single with proceeds to go to a fund for Palestinian children. There is a launch this week I think - there was a notice in the newspaper "Lá" yesterday and it was also mentioned in an Irish Palestine Solidarity newsletter - but I don't have copies; I see on the internet that there was a launch in Galway back on 13 March.

Here is another interesting article about the Elsafty family:http://www.rte.ie/tv/leargas/2004/prog9/
the article is in connection with a tv programme screened earlier this year, so if you are looking at this thread after 2004 maybe the article will be gone from the RTE archives.

The notice about the launch is also in today's edition of "Lá". It will be at Connolly Books, 43 Essex St. east, Dublin from 2-4 pm this Saturday. Credit for the composition goes to Treasa Ní Cheannabháin and Dónal Lunny.

Interestingly, "an Phalaistín" will be launched by Nicholas Carolan, Director of the Irish Traditional Music Archive in Dublin and author of a book on music collector Francis O'Neill entitled "A Harvest Saved".

Seo daoibh a chairde!

AN PHAILISTÍN

Leathchéad bliain faoi riail Iosraelaigh,
Scaipeadh 's fann ar na milliúin teaghlaigh,
Brón 's briseadh croí,
Mo bhrón mo Phailistín.

An Phailistín, an Phailistín, mo Phailistín,
Hosni alaikum ya Falastin,
Hosni alaiki ya Falastin.

Lá agus oíche mar a cheile,
Mná ag caoineadh 's paistí ag scréachaíl,
Síon ón F16,
Marú ar gach taobh.

Dhá bhliain fhada de Intifada,
Caitheadh cloch sa Bhruach Thiar 's i nGaza,
Seasta ar pháirc an áir,
Gan brat ná pas le fáil.

An Phailistín, an Phailistín, mo Phailistín,
Hosni alaikum ya Falastin,
Hosni alaiki ya Falastin.

An talamh naofa shiúil an leanbh Íosa,
Fáithe Abrahám 's Maoise,
Mahamad ó mo bhrón,
Scriosta ag Sharon.

Iarúsailéim, dúirt Íosa Críost,
Nach bhfágfaidh cloch ar chloch, is fíor,
Tairngreacht ag teacht chun cinn,
Mo bhrón mo Phailistín.

An Phailistín, an Phailistín, mo Phailistín,
Hosni alaikum ya Falastin,
Hosni alaiki ya Falastin.

Here is what I got-
Fifty years under Israeli rule
Circulation's family millions of faint
family
Sorrow and heartbreak
My Palestine my Sorrow

The Palestine, the Palestine, My Palestine    (Arabic greeting>>)
Peace be upon you my Palestine
Peace be upon you my Palestine

Day and night as their husbands
Weeping Women 's patches by squeal
Sion from F16
Killing on all sides

Two long years of Intifada
Cast stone in West Bank 's in Gaza

Fixed on the battlefield park
Not available flag is passed

The Palestine, the Palestine, My Palestine (Arabic greeting>>)
Peace be upon you my Palestine
Peace be upon you my Palestine

The holy land Jesus walked as a child
Prophets Abraham and Moses
Mahamad from my sorrow
Destroyed by Sharon

Jerusalem, Jesus Christ said
Not leave stone on stone, it is true
Emerging prediction
My Palestine my Sorrow

The Palestine, the Palestine, My Palestine (Arabic greeting>>)
Peace be upon you my Palestine
Peace be upon you my Palestine
