Neighborhood Bully Lyrics

Well, the neighborhood bully, he’s just one man
His enemies say he’s on their land
They got him outnumbered about a million to one
He got no place to escape to, no place to run
He’s the neighborhood bully

The neighborhood bully just lives...

    A song about describing the ''neighborhood bully'' that had or still has to do with the power made in the state of Israel that influenced and destabilized the soul of the middle east in order to bullishly survive. But who is the actual bully there it's not really clear, like he's some kind of invisible force. Unless it's the Zionist[s] who hijacked the original Jewish Zionist ''idea'' that was turned against the people there, like was long ago when the Israelites hijacked PHILISTIA[Palestine].

    Wherenow today, only to be labeled a anti-Semite if you're a anti- Zionist against the state of Israel in the world. And ''if'' the neighborhood bully is the Zionist[s] there and everywhere, he and they don't really give a holy shit about the normal Jewish, Christian, Palestinian, Arab, Muslim etc, people there and everywhere, because the state of Israel's agenda in the Zionist[s] mind is used as a wedge to accumulate power for a Global World Order.

    It sounds to me it is more like a one man ''David'', a young servant of SAUL and the giant ''Goliath''[known to be a Philistine/Cannanite god] that it ever was and it is ''still that way now that kept his head alive'' that needs more and more rocks and stones to defend itself and continue to be the ''Neighborhood Bully'' for the fight for control that needs to make more and more room for his family tree that is cracking up.

    It is about Israel and the trouble they have had since being given back their country in 1948 after an exile of 1900 years.
    They are a God fearing people living amidst countries who believe in false gods. They are called the neighborhood bully because they retaliate when they are wronged.
    The question here is whether Dylan is really calling Israel the bully, or the Arab countries that surround it the real bullies.
    If recent times have shown us anything, it is Israel is not alone in this world as far as being hated by extreme Muslim and Islamic countries . In the last month alone, over 100 Catholics have suffered being burnt alive of killed by beheading alone ! not counting the number of Christians of other faiths who this new extremist group called ISIS, has reached a new low in crimes against humanity
