Fatah: "No force can remove the weapon from my hand" - terror promoting song at Fatah rally broadcast by official PA TV

When Abbas’ Fatah celebrated its anniversary at a rally in Nablus, Fatah played a song promoting terror and violence. Official PA TV broadcast the song:

“From my wounds, my weapon has emerged.
Oh, our revolution, my weapon has emerged.
There is no force in the world that
can remove the weapon from my hand.

My weapon has emerged...
This revolutionary people has sacrificed and offered in order to live in freedom!
My weapon has emerged.”

Palestinian Media Watch exposed that at the same rally, Fatah burnt a model of a Jewish town, and played an additional song that announces: “I'm coming towards you, my enemy, we're going down from every house with cleavers and knives.” At this event, Abbas’ Fatah deputy chairman Mahmoud Al-Aloul glorified past Fatah terror and promised to continue terror. “Fatah was the first bullet” he shouted to the crowd of cheering Palestinians, and then added “and it remains like that, and continues – without a doubt.” [Official Fatah Facebook page, Facebook page of Fatah – Nablus Branch, Jan. 7, 2020]

The song announcing the Palestinian adherence to violence and armed conflict, stating that “no force in the world can remove the weapon from my hand” is very popular in the PA. PMW exposed that Fatah’s TV channel Awdah broadcast this song 72 times in one month in 2016. It first aired on Awdah in 2015 and has since been broadcast hundreds of times.

Official PA TV broadcast this song during peace talks in 2014, and in 2010 PA TV broadcast the song when it was played at an official PA event in front of PA Minster of Culture. The song as played at the event was subsequently broadcast several times by official PA TV.

The full song contains the following additional lyrics encouraging Martyrdom but this part was not played at the rally in Nablus:

“He who offers his blood does not care
 if his blood flows upon the ground.
As the weapon of the revolution is in my hand,
so my presence will be forced [upon Israel].”
