“My machine gun and my bullets are the path to salvation” – PA highlights songs about bullets and rifles

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: “My machine gun is in my hand, and I want to continue marching
Our occupied land will not return for free
I want to continue marching, I want to continue marching
My machine gun and my bullets are the path to salvation”

Official PA TV narrator: “We play the most beautiful tunes
And in every tune – a bullet
And in every lyric – a rifle

Who is the composer of the song “My machine gun is in my hand”?

Lyrics:My machine gun is my comrade, my brother, and my friend

[Official PA TV, The Tune of the Homeland, March 13 (twice), 14, 15 (three times), 16 (twice), 17, 2021]

The Tune of the Homeland is a quiz program on official PA TV ‎playing highly violent pro-terror songs, which is often broadcast during the ‎‎4:00-5:00 p.m. time slot for children's programming on official PA TV. The ‎broadcast of songs promoting hate and violence immediately after animated ‎children's shows should not be seen as a coincidence, but rather as part of ‎the PA's indoctrination of children.
