Beit Safafa

Chanting traditional ahazij (songs) that mourn the loss of land is common among the women of Beit Safafa. One such song says:

Hand us a newspaper to read

To learn who governs our country

Forbidden unto me is ornate silk

Now that our country is split in two

Forbidden unto me is silk so furrowed

Over you Beit Safafa and your fate
