EXCLUSIVE: Najwan Darwish performs at PalFest 2010

Here's one of two videos we'll be releasing of the brilliant Najwan Darwish performing in Nablus at PalFest 2010.  

English translation:

The Women of Lod

Women as tall as dry wood,
memory can only compare them to spears,
necks craning out of buses, coming to visit Jerusalem.
That was before the arrival of short women settlers
who memory can only compare to ‘dumdum’ bullets.
