PA TV rebroadcasts song: Tiberias, Acre, Haifa, and Jaffa are in "my country Palestine"

"Oh flying bird, circling around, by Allah, oh traveling [bird], I burn with envy. My country Palestine is beautiful. Turn to Safed, and then to Tiberias, and send regards to the sea of Acre and Haifa. Don't forget Nazareth - the Arab fortress, and tell Beit Shean about its people's return. Oh flying bird, circling around... by Allah, oh traveling [brid], I burn with envy. My country Palestine is beautiful. ... . Go to Jenin and bring me from its valley greeting to Nablus, Tulkarem and their soil. Drink the water of Jaffa's port, don't forget Ramle and Ramallah. Oh flying bird, circling around... by Allah, oh traveling [bird], I burn with envy. My country Palestine is beautiful."
