“We replaced bracelets with weapons,” song glorifying violence at dance performance at Expo 2020 Dubai

Visual:
The Asayel band dances to a song.

Lyrics: “The orchard called us to the struggle 
We replaced bracelets with weapons 
We attacked the despicable [Zionists]
Pull the trigger
We shall redeem Jerusalem, Nablus, and the country ”

The following is a longer excerpt of the song “Pull the Trigger”: 
“The Zionists coveted [our] homeland, 
compounding damage and enmity 
But the popular revolution awaits [them] 
The orchard called us to the struggle 
We replaced bracelets with weapons 
We attacked the despicable [Zionists] 
We do not want [internal] strife or disputes 
While this invading enemy is on the battlefield 
This is the day that Jihad is needed 
Pull the trigger. 
We shall redeem Jerusalem, Nablus and the country”

The dance was performed at an event in Dubai organized by the Palestinian embassy there.
