WASHINGTON - Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi on Tuesday quoted the late Israeli lyricist Ehud Manor during her speech urging her Republican colleagues to impeach U.S. President Donald Trump over his role in inciting last week's violence at the U.S. Capitol.

"I recall the words of the great Israeli poet Ehud Manor, when he said 'I can't keep silent. In light of how my country has changed her face won't quit trying to remind her in her ears. I'll sing my cries until she opens her eyes,'" she said on the House floor, reciting the words to 'Ein li Eretz Acheret' ('I have no other land').
