PA Minister visits family of “Martyr” and sings song promoting violence
PA TV program In a Fighter's Home interviews Salah Abu Laban, brother of Martyr (Shahid) Muhammad Abu Laban, a poet, who was imprisoned in 1970 following a military operation against Israelis.
Abu Laban: "Our forefathers told us that there are three keys to Paradise, and they are the keys of Palestine. The first key is the armed struggle; the second key is knowledge; and the third key is the memory that does not end among us. And they gave us the copper key, the symbol of the return."
A song called "The Negev" written by Muhammad Abu Laban and performed by the Askalan band. Minister of Prisoners' Affairs, Issa Karake, is with the family of the Martyr Abu Laban and sings the song together with them:
"Oh Negev, be the will, be the glory,
Be a sword, be one of the lessons of the Intifada."
Another song by the Askalan band, performed in Karake's presence:
"I believed in the lost people, their hands bound,
And I carried my machine gun, so that the [coming] generations would carry it after us."
