"What price freedom?"  Israel cries in deep humility.
"What lasting peace will ever come for my children and for me?"

"What price!?" her leaders quickly respond, 'Why only a small portion of our land!
We must appease that 'Great Eagle Country' who'd promised to lend us a hand!"

"What price freedom?"  Israel laments, "What
'piece for peace' will ever satisfy?
For we've given and given and given and given to the ones who will us to die."

"Be brave!" Israel's leaders rebuff, "It's a small price for freedom's sake!
For we breathe and move with great assurance within Jerusalem's gate."

"Are we not human!?" Israel responds, "When you cut us, do we not bleed!?
Why are you allowing the entire world to drive us into the sea?

"Whose side are you on? Why do you conspire to give our homeland away?
Why are you cowering, cowering, cowering, like dogs who have all been spayed?

"Is there not a leader in all Israel who will stand up in Israel's defense?
What brave heart will not be swayed by nations who seek recompense?

"What price freedom? The answer is clear!  Look back at our history
To the countless brave souls who'd suffered and died for the sake of true liberty!"

[May their blessed memory never be  forgotten!]

"For behold, in those days, and in that time, when I shall bring the captivity of Judah, and Jerusalem, I will also gather all
nations, and will bring them down into the valley of Jehoshaphat, and will plead with them there
for MY People and
for MY Heritage Israel, whom they have scattered amongst the nations, and parted MY Land"  -- Joel 3:1-2.
