Bismillah

Gilit Allah yom hit miladi [1]
Followed by the cry
"Eszhi bilazhy." [2]

Maybe I have a great bias
But dreams can come true
Like that of Sheik Zayed's.

From tribes to the streets we roamin'
Desert-dwelling Bedouins
Who saw the omens.

Hamdullilah

Hoping for the Emira [3]
To see beyond the sky's limits
In his Emirat. [4]

Bismillah

And when I say this, man
Please forgive us for the way we stand;
I pray we can.

Hamdulillah

For The first day this land
Became it's planned visions
That are paved in sand.

Plea-robbed these labor camps
And forever can we hold
Our sacred stance

Hamdulillah

We put the truth to the test
Prove that we blessed
Please take this hand!

Hamdulillah ahbabeena al'li dalooona.
Far'u kalum ila ali'maa bismaoona.
Lee ash'alil insaan ee'a

To the friendships true
No pretentious jewel
Can amend this rule

Hamdulillah

They were never-endin', too
I still spend time
Close to friends in you.

Bismillah

Every city has a dark side
Through tints of a window
It must be the Makhfi. [6]

Hamdulillah

Palaver, it seems
even flight attendants
and taxi drivers can dream.

Debate, diet of hate
Means "City of Life"
If you're livin' it right.

Ma!? Flavor of concrete [7]
Palm trees, skyscrapers
Swinging to "Islam-Speak."

For children goin' rotten
That realize Huye! [8]
Mo' dehems mo' problems. [9]

Hamdullilah

Young and playful
Don't stray too far
Like Halfan and Faisan.

Hamdulillah ahbabeena al'li dalooona.
Far'u kalum ila ali'maa bismaoona.
Lee ash'alil insaan ee'a

Brother whatever you need, I'm there, what is it?
Do you share the hezen? [10]
Or just the kheyr and rezent? [11] [12]

And we stare at prisons
And the buldings rise
When these children die

When shaifas' hobby [13]
Living the fast life
And crashing from robberies

I heard the saddest of stories
Please tell God
That I'm sorry

[1] (Maybe) God made the day celebrating his birth.
[2] (Maybe) "Pride is a pleasure." {And He saw that it was very good).
[3] Emir
[4] Emirate.
[5] Thanks to Allah for our loved ones who have remained for us
--- Tell my words to those who cannot hear us
--- For all of humanity
[6] Secret { Polis-E Makhfi - Secret police in Farsi }
[7] What?!
[8] (Maybe) Breathe!
[9] (Maybe) Raids
[10] Grief
[11] Benefits
[12] Opportunities
[13] Newspapers'

{long passage in Arabic by unknown man at the end omitted}

LaFayette says it's "mo' dirhams mo' problems" and dirham is currency in Moroco, UAE (what that part's about) maybe Iraq.

NPR Needs To Clean Up Their House

What happens when the news media stops covering news objectively - and instead becomes a source of very specific opinions that serve a very narrow agenda?

For example - in the case of the democratic primary - consider the news coverage of the mere possibility of Vice President Joe Biden challenging Hillary Clinton for the Democratic Party's nomination for president.
