PA TV song - Jaffa and Haifa are in my country Palestine

"I wish I could enter my country with no borders...
I will go about in Bethlehem and in Al-Aqsa [Mosque], which is held captive
I will eat lunch in Nazareth and eat dinner in Beit Sahour...
I do not forget Jenin nor Nablus, and the Galilee
I do not forget you, Jaffa, your long sea [shore]
I will never forget the olives of the Galilee
Even if our path has grown long, one day we will return:
To Jerusalem, to Gaza, to Acre, to Haifa, oh Lord.
To Jerusalem, to Ramle, to Acre, to Haifa, oh Lord...
I wish I could enter my country with no borders."

Note: Nazareth, Jaffa, Acre, and Haifa are all cities in Israel. The song has been broadcast repeatedly on PA TV and PA TV Live. It aired 25 times in 2012, 37 times in 2013, 7 times in 2014, 15 times in 2015, and 9 times in 2016, most recently on July 17, 2016.
