'Revolution: Sing That Song' Absolutely Kicks AssTim King Salem-News.,com
This song is packing heat, any way you look at it.
(SACRAMENTO / BOSTON) - Hard hitting East Coast lyrics with a shot of UK street logic; this new cut by Ace, Arafat and Gandhi is so powerful that it can't be held back!
The raw, international sound of 'Revolution: Sing That Song' - it's like Lowkey meets Everlast... and it is a convincing call to arms for those willing to speak out against the victimization of poor huddled masses. Call to arms is figurative, after all the pen is mightier than the sword, in fact the pen quite literally is our sword.
At first I objected to the use of gunfire scenes in the video, as it contrasts with our mission of peace, but then I was told that I must watch the film 'Equilibrium', and after I did, things began to make much more sense. The imagery from that film, used in this video, screams power and is a call for people to wake up and pay attention to what is going on around them.
Even if the physical bodies of Americans, Canadians and Britons are free, their will has been fully hijacked and compromised. The power, with few exceptions, is in no way in the hands of the people themselves. Do I think good can be achieved by an unarmed populace fighting an oppressive government? It would be my preference, but the answer, "no way," resounds from pure logic. This song is packing heat, any way you look at it.
I hear this song and think of the challenges that have faced the world's most well-known rebels, also known in some circles as revolutionaries, freedom fighters, and in the west, of course... 'terrorists'. In Ace, Gandhi and Arafat, I see the spirit of the Lion of Libya, Omar Mukhtar, who battled the Italian fascist invaders (responsible for building the world's first modern-day concentration camps) who knew the fight against ruthless, well funded military tacticians must be waged with total conviction and zero fear, and a lot of guns. However, I also see in them three hardcore ambassadors for education and peace. Mahatma Gandhi himself once said there is a fine line between peaceful resistance and cowardice, we must know when necessity forces the switching of gears.
We have the honor of featuring commentary from Jay R. Crook Ph.D., Michel Herve Navoiseu-Bertaux, both Salem-News.com writers, Albanian pop sensation Fatjon Cota, and UndergroundHH.com.

Tim's years as a Human Rights reporter have taken on many dimensions; he has rallied for a long list of cultures and populations and continues to every day, with a strong and direct concentration on the 2009 Genocide of Tamil Hindus and Christians in Sri Lanka. As a result of his long list of reports exposing war crimes against Tamil people, Tim was invited to be the keynote speaker at the FeTNA (Federation of Tamil Sangams of North America) Conference in Baltimore, in July 2012. This is the largest annual gathering of North American Tamils; Tim addressed more than 3000 people and was presented with a traditional Sri Lanka ‘blessed garland’ and a shawl as per the tradition and custom of Tamil Nadu

Tim specializes in writing about political and military developments worldwide; and maintains that the label 'terrorist' is ill placed in many cases; specifically with the LTTE Tamil Tigers in Sri Lanka, where it was used as an excuse to slaughter people by the tens of thousands; and in Gaza, where a trapped population lives at the mercy of Israel's destructive military war crime grinder. At the center of all of this, Tim pays extremely close attention to the safety and welfare of journalists worldwide.
Salem-News.com Writer/Author/Musician Agron Belica, faced many challenges growing up as a rootless street youth, situations so intense that they threatened to destroy him- that is until he rediscovered his Muslim roots a few years ago and turned his life around.
In 2008, Agron Belica published his research article The Revival of the Prophet Yahya, and has caused quite a stir in scholarly circles. In 2009, a new theory was born, The Crucifixion: Mistaken Identity? John the Baptist and Jesus the Christ.
With no formal advanced education, he offers new interpretations of certain key words in the Quran along with his challenging theories about the role of John the Baptist in the Crucifixion and has attracted the attention of well-known scholars in the field of comparative religion, such as Dr. Laleh Bakhtiar, the first American woman to translate the Quran into English, the noted university professor, Dr. Mahmoud Ayoub, and the author and translator, Dr. Jay R. Crook.
When it comes to comparative religion, Agron has the ability to go up against the most studied religious scholars and few come calling. They fear his logical interpretations based on historical record, and they should.
