Questions for Speakers (Yallah): Said Murad and David Broza

Yallah group

Question Said Murad: What is the song, “Those Who Had a Home” about?
Question for David Broza: With whom did you learn to play music?

Maggie: Because a lot of countries still don't recognize Palestine as a state, how is the pressure that you guys are offering going to be effective in getting reinstatement of Palestinians back to Israel? What measures can be taken to bind the movement with a force that can combat the Israeli allies?

Jourdan: Can music be used as a political tool or is it better for it to remain a neutral sphere for both Palestinians and Israelis to find common ground, or is that a political tool too?

Jacob: I watched part of a film on Sheikh Jarrah called "Home Front: Portraits from Sheikh Jarrah." In one of the clips they provide online, the grandmother of a family that owns one of the evicted houses expresses her response to Israelis protesting against the evictions (and occupation in general). She says that she is skeptical of them and that it is hard for her to trust people that (I quote) "leave their people and religion to join us." Of course, protesting for what you believe in doesn't necessarily mean you are revoking/leaving your people and origins. But I am sure that this woman is not alone in her doubts and confusions of loyalty. In your experiences, is this another dimension altogether in the process of activism? A somewhat double identity or double loyalty? And how, if so, does this affect your actions?
