Student recites “Oh God, take [the Jews] to hell… grant victory to the Muslims” at Fatah celebrations at PA school

Official PA TV Live  |

Text: “O Balfour Promise…
You have caused us shame, O Balfour, we’ve had enough
Palestine was lost, you expelled our people
On my land you established for the despicable ones (i.e., the Jews) their little state…

They have already stolen the homeland of the ancestors… 
Jerusalem was lost, and was already sold to thieves by the greatest of our enemies 
O God, O God take them to hell…
O God, grant victory to the Muslims, return them to the land…
And expel the despicable ones from my land and liberate it from the Jews, and from those who murdered the prophets”

The girl made her recital at a celebration of the 57th anniversary of Fatah, at a PA school in Jenin, the Omar ibn Al-Khattab School.

The Balfour Declaration of Nov. 2, 1917 was a letter from British Foreign Secretary Arthur Balfour to Baron Rothschild stating that "His Majesty's government views with favour the establishment in Palestine of a national home for the Jewish people." In 1922, the League of Nations adopted this and made the British Mandate "responsible for putting into effect the declaration," which led to the UN vote in favor of partitioning Mandatory Palestine into a Jewish state and an Arab state in 1947. In response, Britain ended its mandate on May 15, 1948, and the Palestinian Jews, who accepted the Partition Plan, declared the independent State of Israel. The Palestinian Arabs rejected the plan and together with 7 Arab states attacked Israel, in what is now known as Israel's War of Independence.
