Sleeve notes:

Muslimgauze started at the time of Israel's invasion of Lebanon. As interest in the political situations of the Middle East evolved alongside interest in it's music. Since then support for the P.L.O. has been a source of influence upon the music of Muslimgauze, more so than of the area. From political situations, Muslimgauze create a musical response.

Each piece of music is influenced by a political fact. This recording is dedicated to Palestinians killed by Israel on "Allthnen As Aswad" (Black Monday) at Temple Mount, occupied Jerusalem.
