Song at rally promotes violence against Israel and glorifies terrorists and Martyrdom

Rally in Ramally in solidarity with prisoner Marwan Barghouti, who is serving five life sentences for orchestrating suicide terror attacks against Israeli civilians. After he was convicted and imprisoned, he was re-elected member of the Palestinian Authority parliament.
Excerpt of song at ceremony: 
"Awaken to revolution and to revenge;
Awaken like a storm,
Stone the enemy with fire
And call out loudly:
Revolution is the path of free people."
Host of ceremony, Jamal Hweil: "Did you not tell them, Marwan, that we are a nation glorified by Martyrdom (Shahada, i.e., death for Allah)? They have not understood. Tell them that we are a nation that is glorified by Martyrdom."
