PA daily: Arrest of Palestinian singer for song glorifying terrorist who stabbed 3 Israelis to death is part of Israeli "killing, abuse, settlement, Judaization, and demolitions" against Palestinians

Headline: "The occupation arrested the composer of 'A Song for Kubar'"
      "The occupation forces yesterday [Aug. 30, 2017] arrested popular singer Muhammad Al-Barghouti (23) and his colleagues, organ player Naji Ali Al-Rimawi and studio owner Nazzal Al-Barghouti, from the village of Kafr Ein north of Ramallah. This was due to a folk song in which he praised his homeland and its Martyrs (Shahids), wounded, and prisoners. (the song glorified terrorist Omar Al-And, murderer of 3 Israelis -Ed.)
Al-Barghouti's arrest was preceded by 'a huge amount' of incitement and racism by the Israeli leaders, which led in recent months and even before that to the cancellation of freedoms, killing, abuse, settlement, Judaization, and demolitions, in blatant violation of human morals and standards.
The occupation soldiers did not stop at arresting Al-Barghouti, but seized the storage drives of songs from his performances and hit his father, who was hospitalized as a result in the governmental hospital in Salfit.
'Did you hear the machine gun in the Arab [town of] Kubar?
Omar crossed the forests and carried out the operation (i.e., murdered 3 in terror attack)
If you are looking for real men - you will find them in [the town of] Kubar
He stood before the [Israeli] judge with his head held up high
He went, sharper than a sword, with a smile on his face
O Kubar, the town of the brave ones, your son, Omar, is a leader.
And before him, leader Marwan [Barghouti] (i.e., terrorist who orchestrated three shooting attacks in which 5 were murdered)'
(Note: this is not the whole song - Ed.)
- This is what [Muhammad] Al-Barghouti sang for wounded prisoner Omar Al-Abd from the village of Kubar north of Ramallah, who is accused of carrying out the Halamish operation in July [2017]... The occupation state - which has a record packed full of assassinations, especially against politicians, artists, writers, and authors - has already closed Palestinian radio stations and news channels on the pretext of incitement in the past. The Israeli Ministry of Education also persecutes Palestinian teachers in the schools in occupied Jerusalem and the 1948 territories (i.e., Israel). Recently it took steps against 12 Palestinian teachers, including dismissal and suspension, due to 'incitement.' This is in addition to many steps that [Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin] Netanyahu's government is marketing as legal justification for violating the Palestinian rights and silencing people."

Omar Al-Abd - 19-year-old Palestinian terrorist who stabbed and murdered 3 Israelis - Yosef, Haya, and Elad Salomon - and severely injured 1 - Tova Salomon - as they sat at their Sabbath dinner table in Halamish, north of Ramallah, on July 21, 2017. Al-Abd was shot and wounded by a neighbor and taken into Israeli custody, receiving necessary medical treatment in an Israeli hospital.
Before committing the attack, Al-Abd wrote in his "will" on Facebook that he was taking his knife to respond to what was happening at the Al-Aqsa Mosque and did not expect to return. A week earlier, a terror attack was carried out at the Temple Mount in which 2 Israelis were murdered. Following the attack Israel closed the Temple Mount for two days and reopened it with metal detectors at the entrance to the holy site. Palestinians interpreted these measures as an "aggression" and "attack" against the Al-Aqsa Mosque.

Marwan Barghouti - Palestinian terrorist who is serving 5 life sentences for orchestrating three shooting attacks that murdered 5 people: one attack in Jerusalem (June 12, 2001) in which Greek monk Tsibouktsakis Germanus was murdered by terrorist Ismail Radaida and another unidentified terrorist, another attack at a gas station in Givat Zeev near Jerusalem (Jan. 15, 2002) in which Yoela Hen, 45, was murdered by terrorists led by Mohammed Matla, and one shooting and stabbing attack at the Seafood Market restaurant in Tel Aviv (March 5, 2002) in which Eli Dahan, 53, Yosef Habi, 52, and Police Officer Sergeant-Major Salim Barakat, 33, were murdered by terrorist Ibrahim Hasouna. When arrested by Israel in 2002, Barghouti headed the Tanzim (Fatah terror faction). After he was convicted and imprisoned, he was re-elected member of the Palestinian Authority parliament. On Dec. 4, 2016, he was elected to Fatah's Central Committee.
