(June 21, 2020 / JNS) An old video clip that was rebroadcast recently on the Palestinian Authority’s official television station shows mothers and daughters on a bus trip from Jerusalem to Amman, Jordan, singing about the glories of terrorism, Palestinian Media Watch reported on Thursday.
The clip of the song—made popular after it was performed at a cultural festival in 2010—was played on P.A. T.V. in early June and included the lyrics: “From my wounds, my weapon has emerged/O, our revolution, my weapon has emerged/There is no force in the world that can remove the weapon from my hand/My weapon has emerged. My weapon has emerged.”
According to PMW, the following additional stanza, which encourages martyrdom, was omitted from the June 2 broadcast: “He who offers his blood does not care/If his blood flows upon the ground/As the weapon of the revolution is in my hand/So my presence will be forced [upon Israel].”
