From Palestinian Media Watch:
“The First Direction of Prayer” by Syrian singer Assala Nasri:
“Our Martyrs are convoys and our bones are mountains
We don’t surrender to the lowly
We aren’t deterred by imprisonment
Palestine is etched on the heart of the fetus
A proud Martyr in his mother’s womb
And the Arab state will remain ours – Arab, Arab Palestine…
We [hold] the rifles to our chests and our eyes are raised to you
Our homes are trenches and our souls are the sacrifice for you
O Jerusalem, you will not remain stolen.”
[Official PA TV, June 19 and 26, 2018]
Interestingly, it appears that Nasri first wrote/sang this song in 2011:
Her YouTube page is pretty dead and her website mentioned in the earlier video is no longer around, the domain bought by a Chinese face cream advertisement.
Apparently, Nasri’s career has been on the skids and she is using the violent pro-Palestinian song as her way to stage a comeback.
Naturally, the main audience for such an attempt is the official Palestinian Authority TV channel. You cannot even imagine one of them saying “no, this video does not promote peace, it is unacceptable to be shown here.”
