    What's all the fighting about?
    English lyrics to "Jerusalem of Gold":

    The olive trees that stand in silence
    Upon the hills of time
    To hear the voices of the city
    As bells of evening chime.

    The shofar sounding from the Temple
    To call the world to prayer
    A shepherd pauses in the valley
    And peace is everywhere.

    Jerusalem, Jerusalem, Forever new, yet forever old
    My heart will sing your songs of glory, Jerusalem.
    Jerusalem, Jerusalem, O City with a heart of gold
    My heart will sing your songs of glory, Jerusalem. :eusa_whistle:

    "Jerusalem" by Don McLean:

    Jerusalem, Jerusalem
    All roads lead to you
    Jerusalem, Jerusalem
    Your light is shining through
    And you will show
    Show the way
    To all who see it shine
    That we can live in peace in Jerusalem this time.

    The walls will keep you in
    The walls will keep you out
    The gates are calling those
    Who know what it's about.

    Jerusalem is old
    Jerusalem is new
    Jerusalem can hold
    Christian, Muslim, Jew.

    The markets and the alleys
    The temples and the tombs
    A place for all believers
    It has so many rooms.

    Yes, we can live in peace in Jerusalem this time.
