PA TV song:
"Marry me off to a girl
who will raise my children
on carrying the rifle"


by Itamar Marcus and Nan Jacques Zilberdik

Official PA TV continues to use music and culture to glorify violence. PA TV recently rebroadcast a song and dance that included the words:
"Marry me off to girl who will raise my children on carrying the rifle"
 
PMW has reported that songs and dance as well as PA TV music videos venerating the rifle are frequently broadcast on PA TV.

The following is the text of the song broadcast on PA TV:

"My country is Arab, filled with freedom.
Oh mother, marry me off to a Palestinian girl.
Mother, a daughter of the land, with a happy nature, who will raise my children on carrying the rifle."
[PA TV (Fatah), Aug. 15, 21, 2011,
Jan. 3, 26, and July 10, 2012]
