B7ebbik (I love you)


Album: Ghanni 3an Ta3rif
Lyrics: Mohamad Halim
Composed by: Jame3 Taksir
Perform by: Rola Azzar

I love you
I love you, she said, and my love for you cannot be measured
The waves were shy
And on the wall fell a star and lit up Akka's lighthouse
I love you, may god bless…
That smile
Which liberates prisoners and excites rebels

I love you
Since my childhood days
When you got skinny… and when you got fat
When you went wild… and when you went quite
When you were Nefertiti (an Egyptian goddess known for her beauty) and when you were a tomboy

I love you, and if I must
I would climb Akka’s wall and shout
Till I stop the tides
And till the people of Haifa hear my voice 
And till Led and Ramllih are one
I will buy you Khan Al – Umdan
Our wedding would be in the Knights’ Hall
Al Kobeh and Tabouleh would be made by your mom
And I will bring the sweets from Lebanon
I love you?
Should I explain more…

I love she said, and my love for you is without measure
The waves were shy
And on the wall fell a star that lit up like a beacon of light
I love you, my god bless… 
That smile
Which liberates prisoners and excites rebels



“Ghanni A`an Taa`rif” (Singing Sexuality) is a Palestinian youth music project, and an initiative of alQaws for Sexual and Gender Diversity in Palestinian Society.  The project emerged from the desire of alQaws activists to reach out to Palestinian youth. alQaws aspired to open new discussions about sexuality and gender diversity in Palestinian society through music. Music is an expressive art form that has the potential to make us think and feel; it is a driver and catalog of revolutionary social movements, this one no exception.

The media campaign for the project was launched on the first of May 2013, primarily through Facebook, Twitter, YouTube and email. The Facebook page holds all relevant information about "Ghanni A`an Taa`rif", as well as all written and visual materials that were and will be produced. These include three promotional teaser videos directed by Eli Reziq and Shahd Issawi. The campaign also included graffiti painted on the walls of Jaffa, Haifa and other cities.
