Official PA TV program Palestine This Morning

Lyrics: “They were in Acre (i.e., Israeli city), my child, and the wave gave her a kiss. Aziza used to dance in Jaffa (i.e., Israeli city), and the basket in her hand. They were in Haifa, my child, they were in Lod and Ramle (i.e., all Israeli cities), Mahmoud and Maryam and the girl played there in Safed (i.e., Israeli city(, we called it the land of the free people, and now [we call it] the occupied land”

This song was broadcast in honor of Land Day.

Land Day – annual commemoration of the general strike and demonstrations organized by Israeli Arab residents of the Galilee on March 30, 1976 to protest the Israeli government's decision to expropriate land in the Galilee for security and building purposes, which it later implemented. During the protests, demonstrators burnt tires, blocked roads, and threw rocks and firebombs. Six demonstrators were shot and killed by the Israeli army and police. Israeli Arabs and Palestinians consider Land Day a national day.
