“The fire ignited and the rifle sang‎… dawn of freedom is painted with blood” –on PA TV

A dance troupe performs to a song played in the background

 

Lyrics:  "The fire has ignited and the rifle has sung

O homeland, ask for the young people and have hope

The fire has ignited from Acre to Tira (i.e., Israeli cities)

A handful of children who were raised on a mat...

[The children] have grown older and not forgotten the land

Who could forget the Paradise of Palestine? …

O homeland, ask for the young people and have hope...

Self-sacrificing fighters have appeared, and woe to those who ignore it:

The dawn of freedom is painted with blood

The fire has ignited and the rifle has sung"

[Official PA TV, Nov. 10, 2022]

 

This was broadcast from a rally in the Gaza Strip marking the 18th anniversary of former PLO and PA Chairman Yasser Arafat’s death.

Text on poster on stage: “Yasser Arafat - your legacy is present today”
