Subject: RE: Lyr Add: 'You, You Sons of Moses' Anti-Semitic

A longer version of this song:


SONG OF THE VOLUNTEERS
Sung to the tune of 'Song of the Vagabonds' from 'The Vagabond King' by R. Friml

All you sons of Moses,
With your crooked noses,
Fight, Fight, Fight for Israel.

All you sons of Jacob,
Join the Star of David,
Fight, Fight, Fight for Israel

Brothers, Brothers, Victory is in Sight.
Forward, Forward, Onward with the Fight.

Years and Years we've waited,
Now our State's created,
Fight, Fight, Fight for Israel

On the desert sand,
Fighters, hand in hand,
Build, Build, Build for Israel.

With our sweat and toil,
We reclaim our soil,
Build, Build, Build for Israel.

Brothers, Brothers, wherever you may be,
Come up. Join us, in our Liberty.

Years and Years we've waited
Now our State's created.
Build, Build, Build for Israel.

Once again Our Own,
Our long forsaken Home,
Live, Live, Live for Israel.

Here at last we're free
To forge our destiny
Live, Live, Live for Israel.

Brothers in Courage helped create our State.
Brothers in Freedom will always keep it great.

Years and Years we've waited.
Now our State's created
Live, Live, Live for Israel.


Notes: The above text is quoted from the Fall 2002 American Veterans of Israel newsletter which goes on to say:  "The text of the Song of the Volunteers was printed In the AVI Newsletter Winter 2001. At the time neither the authorship nor the text were clear. We have since determined that the lyrics were written in August 1948 by Aaron Baranan, Louis Cohen, Brenner from England and Max Kampler.  Baranan can be reached at 5030 Rebel Trail, N.W., Atlanta, GA 30327."
