A Jerusalem Story
Badawi - A Tale Of Two Cities - 2023
Both Israelis and Palestinians claim Jerusalem as their capital; Israel maintains its primary governmental institutions there, and the State of Palestine ultimately foresees it as its seat of power.
The international community rejects the annexation as illegal and regards East Jerusalem as Palestinian territory occupied by Israel. (

Raz Mesinai (aka Badawi) was born in Jerusalem in 1973. His first two decades were spent in frequent transit between Jerusalem and New York City, where he became immersed in both the worlds of traditional Sufi, Jewish, and Bedouin music, and the dub / hip-hop and dance music scenes of the eighties and early nineties in New York City.

Eddie Vedder & Mike McCready - Bob Dylan: The 30th Anniversary Concert Celebration (Deluxe Edition) - 1993
I remember hearing Eddie's cover of this Dylan song at the age of 14 and just being destroyed by it.... thinking of what my Grandfather had told me of his experience in WW2, often in tears, that the world would never let these wars happen again. Yet here we are..... I also love Odetta's version who also makes it her own. With lyrics like these, I think the song worth a 2 version comparison.
