‎“I'm coming with my rifle… I’m coming towards you, my ‎enemy” – song promoting violence in PA TV quiz

Official Palestinian Authority TV  |

Official PA TV narrator: “Because songs are a basic part of our culture and ‎they express our national identity… and because these songs are present in ‎our consciousness and still fascinate us with values and meanings… It’s ‎here: ‘The Tune of the Homeland.’”‎

Lyrics: “We pledge to Allah - we won’t leave! …‎
We pledge to the revolution, the revolutionaries, and the public – we won’t leave! ...‎”

Official PA TV narrator: “Who… wrote the song “We pledge to Allah - we ‎won’t leave!”‎‏?‏

Lyrics:“I'm coming towards you, my enemy, from every house, ‎neighborhood, and street
I'm coming with my rifle and my faith, I'm coming towards you, my enemy
Our war is a war of the streets
I'm coming towards you, my enemy

[Official PA TV, The Tune of the Homeland, Jan. 1 (twice), 2, 4 (twice), 5, 6 ‎‎(twice), 2021]‎

Note: Additional lyrics of the last song, which were not included in the sound ‎bite at the end of the quiz, explicitly call for murder:‎
‎“I'm coming towards you, my enemy, from every house, neighborhood and ‎street
We're going down from every house with cleavers and knives”‎
