(August 13, 2020 / JNS) A music video produced by Palestinian Authority leader Mahmoud Abbas’s Fatah Party threatens to “obliterate whoever approaches my land,” referring to Israel’s stated intention to extend its sovereignty to the Jordan Valley, and parts of Judea and Samaria.
According to a report released by Palestinian Media Watch on Wednesday, the lyrics of the song in the clip say that if Israel “extends its hand” to take Palestinian land, that hand will be “cut off.” In addition, Fatah promises to “redeem the land with spirit and blood” and “sacrifice souls,” while making the “Zionists suffer.”
Fatah added another favorite message, as well—that “Palestine” is more “precious” than life itself. This message is accompanied by scenes of violence and riots:
The video was posted on the Facebook page of the Fatah Commission of Information and Culture on July 9.
