Uh-oh. Arabs freaking again over singing Jews.

http://elderofziyon.blogspot.com/2016/12/uh-oh-arabs-freaking-again-over-singing.html

In 2015, there was a viral video of chassidim dancing in an airport in Amman, presumably to celebrate an impending or recent marriage, based on the songs they were singing.

Members of Jordan’s parliament were upset because, well, Jews. One said is was a disgusting display and another demanded that the songs be translated to they could tell if the Jews were mocking them.

History repeats itself, as farce.

The Jewish businessmen who are visiting Bahrain (in a story I broke and is now all over the place) were apparently videoed while dancing on their own somewhere in the kingdom.

The Arabs tweeting about it  and writing articles about it claim that the lyrics they are singing translate to, “We will build the Temple on the ruins of Al Aqsa, the Western Wall is already ours” adding the hashtag #shameful.

This is only 3/4 of a lie.

The lyrics of the song they are singing are:

יִבָּנֶה הַמִּקְדָּשׁ, עִיר צִיּוֹן תְּמַלֵּא, 
וְשָׁם נָשִׁיר שִׁיר חָדָשׁ וּבִרְנָנָה נַעֲלֶה, 

Which translate to

May the Temple be rebuilt, and Jerusalem repopulated. 
We will sing a new song as we ascend [the Mount] in joy.

So the song is indeed about rebuilding the Temple, It says nothing about Al Aqsa or the kotel.

You just knew the antisemitism would pop up after the story broke. And these hateful Arabs, true to form, assume that Jews must be singing about them, when in Jewish liturgy and songs, Arabs are irrelevant.

The song itself is many centuries old, Here is a screenshot from a 1724 printing:
