PA kids' war song to terrorist: "I want to carry a machine gun and a rifle"

PA TV program "Good Morning Jerusalem" about the state of the Palestinian prisoners in Israeli jails.
Two young girls dedicate a song to their aunt, female prisoner Sanaa Shehadeh:

PA TV host:
“The Palestinian prisoner, Sanaa Shehadeh, has been [imprisoned] 9 years.”
Prisoner’s niece 1: “I want to recite a song for you [prisoner Sanaa]:
What am I doing here while my enemy is on my ancestors’ land?
I want to defend, I want to fight,
I want to carry a machine gun and a rifle."
Prisoner’s nieces 1 and 2:
"And tomorrow, when the war starts,
I won’t care about you [my enemy], or about the West.
And tomorrow, when the war starts,
I won’t care about you [my enemy], or about the West.
And we shall strike Israel, we shall strike Israel,
And return you [to us], land of my ancestors.
And return you [to us], land of my ancestors."
