LOS ANGELES, CA (Catholic Online) - "This should be the fight song for Tel Aviv," Bon Jovi told his audience, according to Israeli media and concert attendees last Saturday. Although it is unknown if he knew about the terrorist attacks just before his performance, the Tel Aviv crowd felt the lyrics of the new song, titled "We Don't Run."
We don't runI'm standing my groundWe don't runAnd we don't back down
The nation was under several terrorist attacks when they observed the holiday week of Sukkot. On Thursday night, Israelis Eitam and Na'ama Henkin were shot to death in front of their 4 young children. The family was reportedly driving in the West Bank when they were ambushed by Palestinian gunmen.
Bon Jovi told the Israeli media how he had always wanted to visit Israel, "the birthplace of all religions," after hearing how wonderful the country was.
"I have been everywhere and Israel was a place that I've always wanted to visit, but it never worked out. This time I insisted that Israel must be on our list, and it happened," said the musician.
He also told his concert audience how he waited for the event for a long time and that finally they were all there. Bon Jovi was also reportedly wearing a cross necklace prominently displayed during the show.
