Michael Heart, a singer-songwriter from Los Angeles, is probably best known for his blockbuster hit about Gaza, We will not go down.' You may recognize that song as bumper music from Mike Rivero's WhatReallyHappened.com radio show.
In 2013 Heart released "What About Us", described as 'A song in support of the civilian Syrian population.' It's worth a listen. Here are those videos, more about the singer and his website, info about purchasing his songs, and an interesting 20-minute interview with Michael Heart.
You can download 'WHAT ABOUT US' on itunes here. [3:40 in length, for 99 cents.]
Here is the music video. The youtube video currently has 195,500 views, 2344 likes, 66 dislikes, and 109 comments.
Here is a two-part interview with Michael Heart. The Part 2 video begins with his discussion of his song about Palestine.
In January of 2009, during the war in Gaza, Michael wrote and released a humanitarian song in support of the Palestinian civilian victims. The song is called "We Will Not Go Down (Song for Gaza)" (click here to download song). It was posted on YouTube and originally made available as a free mp3 download. The response to the song has been overwhelming, to say the least. Here are a few stats:
Over 1 million views of the original video on YouTube (within the first month)
Over half a million downloads of mp3
Over 10,000 emails, comments and messages of support
Contrary to the belief of some people, the song has absolutely nothing to do with religion (and the various online postings by people claiming that Michael is a follower of any particular religion are totally erroneous). This song is strictly humanitarian in nature. It has been, and continues to be, played on radio stations and television channels in several countries, and it was chanted in demonstrations and rallies all over the globe. It has been translated into a dozen languages and subtitled on numerous clips. More than 500 new clips have been made with "We Will Not Go Down" by people all over the world, and thousands of websites have uploaded the clip and posted the lyrics (Note: Please scroll down to read an important notice regarding the above-mentioned videos).
Here are a few of his tweets includng a photo of Michael Heart with Canadian singer Bryan Adams.
I've discovered over the years that a lot of people really like my music. The record companies couldn't care less about it. But a lot of people do like it. And I'm very grateful for that!
Hi everyone! For those of you who don't know me, I'm Michael Heart. I'm an independent Pop/Rock singer-songwriter based in Los Angeles. I came to Hollywood 25 years ago with a dream (like everyone else who comes here). In all that time, after knocking on so many doors in this brutal business, sadly none of them have opened for me. At least not enough to make a real difference in my career. Although I have worked with quite a few big names in the music business (Brandy, Will Smith, Jessica Simpson, Toto, Earth Wind & Fire, Natalie Cole, Phil Collins, etc), I was never given a real "break" - an opportunity to really fly on my own. When I occasionally played my songs to some of those big names, I received some major compliments and serious encouragement from them. "Keep rocking!", "Excellent work!", "You are amazing!", "Don't give up, you're gonna make it!" These are phrases I've been told time and time again.
I have independently released a handful of songs and low budget videos on YouTube. Some of them have been viewed a time or two. But once again, not quite enough to really kick my music career into high gear. It's very hard to keep trying as an independent artist with zero support from a major record company. For starters, it takes financial support to keep recording music, shooting music videos, promoting your music, marketing, etc. I have done what I could on my own until now, but it sure is hard!
So I would like to ask for your help in reaching my full potential. By supporting this campaign, you would be giving an independent artist a chance to present his music to the world in a professional and effective manner. If you're not familiar with my music, please click on this link to hear samples: http://www.michaelheart.com/music.htm
With your much needed support, I will be able to record new songs and make new videos. By making a donation to help propel my music career, you would be making a huge difference!
Thank you for helping me make this happen. I truly appreciate it!

Early in the morning of April 9, 1948, commandos of the Irgun (headed by Menachem Begin) and the Stern Gang attacked Deir Yassin, a village with about 750 Palestinian residents. The village lay outside of the area to be assigned by the United Nations to the Jewish State; it had a peaceful reputation. But it was located on high ground in the corridor between Tel Aviv and Jerusalem. Deir Yassin was slated for occupation under Plan Dalet and the mainstream Jewish defense force, the Haganah, authorized the irregular terrorist forces of the Irgun and the Stern Gang to perform the takeover.
In all over 100 men, women, and children were systematically murdered. Fifty-three orphaned children were literally dumped along the wall of the Old City, where they were found by Miss Hind Husseini and brought behind the American Colony Hotel to her home, which was to become the Dar El-Tifl El-Arabi orphanage.
I have almost 9 million views on my youtube channel. But this video, with only 6,400 views, is still my absolute favorite. Be sure to watch this powerful video of a man who was shot by cops, charged with attempted murder of a police officer, spent 2 years in prison and was aquitted of all charges by a jury of 12, without a lawyer, representing himself! His webpage is here: "Shot In Reverse, Saved By God": The Vincent Arias Story
"Try to learn what is pleasing to the Lord. Take no part in the fruitless works of darkness; rather expose them, for it is shameful even to mention the things done by them in secret; but everything exposed by the light becomes visible, for everything that becomes visible is light. Ephesians 5:10-13
The Ron Paul Bumper Sticker Is Still On My Car (Tearjerker tribute vid ;-)
Just for fun. This is a vid I made in 2008 after his campaign ended."remember the good times. A tribute to Dr. Paul and all his supporters who fight for freedom. Keep up the good work everyone!"
Several people at the time told me that this made them cry. ;-)
(BEAUTIFUL LOSER/ I WILL REMEMBER YOU')
[The background story of the video, and my introduction to Ron Paul (from my dad when I was a kid) , along with my dad and my trip to the first Ron Paul meet-up in Pasadena, California - a meeting which was featured in the New York Times (they falsely mis-characterized the entire meeting by the way, and claimed that there were a bunch of jew haters there when none of that is true! No one even mentoned Jews at that meeting.) is here.
Neocon Glenn Beck calls for celebrating Ramadan by shooting all Guantanamo prisoners in the head Beck, an ardent supporter of Israel, in the past was touted as a possible running mate to Sarah Palin. He has likened Ron Paul supporters to terrorists and said that he "hates 9/11 victims families for asking questions". Beck stated, in part, "We can't let them starve themselves to death? Damn right we can. We can also shoot them in the head, which is the other option and the one I'm for. SHOOT THEM. But, the other is let them starve to death and I'm totally fine with that."
Palin and Beck 2012? A match straight out of hades 11/19/09 Sarah Palin, former governor of Alaska who is making the media rounds promoting her book Going Rogue, has said that she would consider TV host Glen Beck as a running mate if she ran for president in two years.
Palin continues standard establishment line on Israeli policy 11/18/09 Palin: "I disagree with the Obama administration on that. I believe that the Jewish settlements should be allowed to be expanded upon, because that population of Israel is, is going to grow. More and more Jewish people will be flocking to Israel in the days and weeks and months ahead. And I don't think that the Obama administration has any right to tell Israel that the Jewish settlements cannot expand."
Walters: "Even if its Palestinian areas?"
Palin: "I believe that the Jewish settlements should be allowed to expand."
Neocon pundits amp up demonization efforts in response to possible Ron Paul 2012 run 12/21/09 [Featured on Infowars.com and LewRockwell.com.] Beck: You raise money however you want, as long as you arent blowing other people up... Ron Paul supporters are tapping in to something that's very real... But if fringe elements turn that disenfranchisement into violence, we endanger the freedoms we're supposedly all fighting for... Okay, where am I wrong? The Ron Paul revolution. I think it's meant to be a catchy slogan, but I fear some of his fringe supporters are taking the word 'Revolution' too literally."
Flashback: "Why would Israel attack a ship that belonged to its only ally?" asks Israeli Ambassador 9/28/10
Israeli Ambassador Michael Oren, who was heckled by Muslim students in 2010 while giving a speech at UC Irvine in what became the infamous 'Irvine 11' case, is a stalwart defender of the official U.S.S. Liberty government story. The students, who called Oren a war criminal, were later criminally prosecuted by the Orange County, CA D.A. after an inflential rabbi held a private meeting with the district attorney's staff.
New law allows Israeli Air Force easy opportunity for a false flag in United States 7/20/12
Will the Israeli Air Force be used to carry out another false-flag attack in America? On Tuesday night, July 17th, the U.S. Congress passed the final version of the United States-Israel Enhanced Security Cooperation Act of 2012 a bill which not only will give Israel hundreds of millions of dollars worth of 'surplus' military equipment, but will allow the Israeli Air Force to conduct "training and exercise opportunities in the United States". The bill was "Presented to President" Obama on July 19th but as of this writing has not yet been signed into law. Israel, along with the United States, has a long documented history of "false flag operations"- deceptive attacks which are generally conducted in order to deceive the public in order to get them to support new wars.
