A blessed lady whose genuine sacrifices for a genuine cause unfortunately and inadvertently played a part in the creation of a state that perpetrates the same crimes against Palestinian people. Now Palestinians are saying that "Blessed is the heart that bleeds for honor's sake". The dilemma is that there is no one to train palestinians to save palestinians in Palestine. Had Netenyahu be a German in Nazi Germany, he would be the most beloved of the Fuhrer.

Hanna Senesh‘s Poetry, songs and plays

Szenes was a poet and playwright, writing both in Hungarian and Hebrew. The following are four of her better known poems or songs. The best known of these is Halikha LeKesariya ("A Walk to Caesarea"), commonly known as Eli, Eli ("My God, My God"). Many singers have sung it, including Regina Spektor and Sophie Milman. It was used to close some versions of the film Schindler’s List:


My God, My God, I pray that these things never end,

The sand and the sea,

The rustle of the waters,

Lightning of the Heavens,

The prayer of Man.

אלי, אלי, שלא יגמר לעולם

החול והים

רישרוש של המים

ברק השמים

תפילת האדם


The following lines are the last song she wrote after she was parachuted into a partisan camp in Yugoslavia:

Blessed is the match consumed in kindling flame.

Blessed is the flame that burns in the secret fastness of the heart.

Blessed is the heart with strength to stop its beating for honor’s sake.

Blessed is the match consumed in kindling flame.
