Friday’s Quote – Israel 2009

Mira Anwar ‘Awad is an Arab-Israeli singer, songwriter and actress. Her father is Israeli and her mother Bulgarian. She grew up in Tel Aviv. She was born on the 11th of June 1975 in Galilee. Both artists are politically active and both pro-Palestinian.

Their Eurovision song was composed by Noa, Mira Awad and Gil Dor.

Rakh yiji yom wu’kul ilkhof yizul
B’aynaki israr
Inhu ana khayar
N’kamel halmasar
Mahma tal.

The quote is in Arab. The whole song is a combination of three languages, English, Hebrew and Arab, making it the first song with Arab lyrics from Israel. The quote means: “A day will come and all fear will disappear, in your eyes a determination, that there is a possibility, to carry on the way, as long as it may take”
