Mashrou’ Leila: “Cavalry”

“Cavalry” is the name of the lead single from The Beirut School, the latest album by the acclaimed Lebanese indie-band Mashrou’ Leila, and the release is accompanied by a powerful music video that reminds us of the reality of military occupation; and the consequences of a systemic failure in politics and democracy. Something that should be borne in mind when we view the reckless behaviour and outright falsehoods of some Brexit-supporting politicians and leaders in the United Kingdom as they seek to leverage the precarious peace on this island nation for their own selfish ends.

    If they had been Palestinians the Israelis would have summarily executed them on the spot. These soldiers showed restraint in comparison.

  2. Cavalry or Calvary?
