“Greetings to all our listeners and happy holiday to you, our people in occupied Palestine (referring to Israel), 1948 Palestine, the 1948 territories... Greetings to our people in Acre, Nazareth, Tiberias, Haifa and Jaffa... May your Palestinian identity be rooted in your hearts and minds. Allah willing, one day Palestine will be Palestine again,” the radio announcer said in the Aug. 8 broadcast.
