Songs are a means of “incitement and mobilization,” need to “increase incitement” to young generation, says Palestinian composer
Palestinian composer and singer Walid Abd Al-Salam: “[National] songs are always one of the ways of struggle, a means of instilling awareness, incitement, and mobilizing… I’m sad about the generation that didn’t experience the intifada. There is a generation that was born after the 1990s. They didn’t experience the first Intifada, and perhaps not the second [Intifada] either. Therefore, [what happened] in 1967 and in 1948 is ancient history… This generation… for which goal will it run? Of course, the goal is known, but currently how will it struggle, and where, and what is the national incubator that can cultivate it? … You need to again increase the level of interest, awareness, and incitement.”
The first Intifada - Palestinian wave of violence and terror against Israel 1987-1993, approximately 200 Israelis murdered
The second Intifada – PA terror campaign (2000-2005) in which more than 1,100 Israelis were murdered.
