“Jerusalem – we’ll redeem it with our lives.. We’ll sacrifice for the sake of the Al-Aqsa Mosque until [our] last breath” – Fatah calls for violence in Jerusalem

Video posted on the Facebook page of the Fatah Commission of Information and Culture

Video:
Fatah Advisory Council Deputy Secretary-General Fahmi Al-Za’arir: “As far as we’re concerned, fundamentally the whole turmoil is about Jerusalem - Those who made offers to the Jews before 1948 offered them to be in Argentina and at the end of the earth, in the East and the West. Why didn’t they go far away? After all, they offered them larger lands than these lands that have rivers, large trees, and they’re all green. Why did they insist on being precisely in this area? Not just because they hold [an opinion] that may be fake in history, but fundamentally because this area, in other words Jerusalem, is the holy area specifically for Islam and Christianity, and they claim also ‘for Judaism.’”

Lyrics: “Palestine, O my land, O stronghold of the knights
O name in my heart, O eye shadow on my eyelids
The land of love and peace
O revival of the religions
You have a giant people that has not stopped suffering

This is Jerusalem, calling to its residents
This is Jerusalem, calling to its residents
And Jerusalem – we will redeem it with our lives

And Jerusalem – we will redeem it with our lives

O Prophet [Muhammad’s] Ascent to Heaven, and birthplace of the messiah [Jesus]
O Prophet [Muhammad’s] Ascent to Heaven, and birthplace of the messiah [Jesus]
O most beautiful homeland in the pure world
O most beautiful homeland in the pure world
We will raise it above the largest [of our cities]

This is Jerusalem, calling to its residents
This is Jerusalem, calling to its residents
And Jerusalem – we will redeem it with our lives
And Jerusalem – we will redeem it with our lives

We are the people that has defied the hardships
O homeland, life is insignificant for your sake
This is Palestine that is like Paradise
This is Palestine that is like Paradise
O Almighty Master of Heaven – defend it

This is Jerusalem, calling to its residents
This is Jerusalem, calling to its residents
And Jerusalem – we will redeem it with our lives
And Jerusalem – we will redeem it with our lives

A giant people that has gotten used to being tough
A giant people that has gotten used to being tough
And the sun, we will cover it with our swords

This is Jerusalem, calling to its residents
This is Jerusalem, calling to its residents
And Jerusalem – we will redeem it with our lives
And Jerusalem – we will redeem it with our lives

We will sacrifice for the sake of the Al-Aqsa Mosque until [our] last breath
We will turn the world upside down for the sake of this homeland…

This [Palestinian] people, this army, and its people who are protecting [the land]
The armored chests (i.e., bulletproof armor) does not protect [the Israeli soldiers]

This is Jerusalem, calling to its residents
This is Jerusalem, calling to its residents
And Jerusalem – we will redeem it with our lives
And Jerusalem – we will redeem it with our lives”
