“Allah is stronger and greater than the Children of Zion” – song at Fatah rally

Song at Fatah rally against US President Trump’s Middle East peace deal:
"Allah is with us. He is stronger and greater than the Children of Zion
Even if they hang, kill and bury [me], my land will not be humiliated
My red blood waters the greenery with lemon flavor 
The fire of revolution is getting stronger and flaring up. We are the victors…
My chest is a machine gun’s magazine, where are you, my brothers?...
Where are the millions?
Where is the Arab people?
Where is the Arab rage?
Where is the Arab blood?
Where is the Arab honor?
Where are the millions? Where?"
(On poster: Terrorist prisoner Iyyad Ahmad Fawaghra)

This song is famous for being used to motivate Palestinians to take to the streets and wage “intifada,” i.e., engage in violence against Israelis. Fatah played this song at an event protesting US President Trump’s Middle East peace deal, which he revealed on Jan. 28, 2020, together with Israeli PM Netanyahu.

Iyyad Ahmad Hussein Fawaghra – Palestinian terrorist affiliated with Palestinian Islamic Jihad (PIJ) who led potential suicide bombers to Jerusalem in 2005.

The Trump peace plan – US President Donald Trump announced his Israel–Palestinian peace plan "Peace to Prosperity" – commonly known as “the deal of the century” - on Jan. 28, 2020. Main points of the plan: 1- Israeli sovereignty would be applied to the Jordan Valley and all Israeli towns and cities in the West Bank. 2- Jerusalem, including all its holy sites, would remain under Israeli sovereignty with accommodations made to enable access for Palestinians. 3- The remainder of the West Bank, the Gaza Strip, and part of what is currently Israeli land in the Negev, the Galilee, and Jerusalem - creating a territory almost equal in size to the West Bank and Gaza Strip - would form the Palestinian state, with its capital in neighborhoods in East Jerusalem that are outside of Israel's security wall. 4- The Palestinian state would be demilitarized, with Israel responsible for external security and controlling all airspace. 5- All Palestinian prisoners except murderers, and those who attempted or conspired to murder would be released. 6- Palestinians in refugee camps would be absorbed into their host countries and, subject to certain limitations, into the Palestinian state. 7- Before becoming a state, the Palestinians would have to carry out extensive reform of their laws and institutions, including implementing a new governing system; granting its people due process and basic human rights and freedoms; end all incitement to and incentivizing of terror; end all glorification of terror and martyrdom; disarm Hamas; and adopt a culture promoting peace. The goal of the plan is to create a Palestinian state beside Israel, living in peace and security. The implementation would be facilitated through extensive international investment.
