Girl recites poem on PA TV: "To war that will… destroy the Zionist's soul"

"I am a Palestinian, my name is Palestinian
I've etched my name on all the town squares
In letters that stand out over the placards
The letters of my name pursue me, enliven me, nourish me,
They enflame my spirit and beat in my veins...
Saladin (Muslim conqueror of Jerusalem), calls to me from the depths of my heart
All my Arabness calls me to vengeance and liberation
My flag that was folded in Hattin (Saladin battle in 1187)
The person who summons to prayer in the Al-Aqsa [Mosque] calls to us: "Save me"
Thousands of prisoners and thousands who are jailed
call to this great nation and call to millions
They say: To Jerusalem, the [first] direction of prayer [in Islam]
To war that will smash the oppression and destroy the Zionist's soul
and raise the Palestinian banner in the world's sky
And strengthen my word that goes on: Palestinian, Palestinian, Palestinian."
