Attaching explosive devices ‘cause they keep stealing their lands
In the name of freedom

from Lupe Fiasco – Ayesha Says (Intro) on Rap Genius


The ironic key to this line is the phrase “In the name of freedom”.

The topic in question is the Israeli government’s “ethnic cleansing” of Palestine, and how citizens are responding violently (i.e., suicidal bombings) to what is unlawful seizure.

Unfortunately, the situation itself is the product of a war that has been going on for decades (and that, truth be told, originated centuries ago), and shows no sign of resolution any time soon. The crisis in the Middle East is very much a stalemate.
