"Palestine" replaces Israel in PA TV sports broadcast about Barcelona team visit

PA TV sports commentator: "Today Barcelona came to us. Barcelona honored us without receiving anything in return. It came out of love for Palestine, it came out of love for this nation, it came to honor us at the Dura stadium [in Hebron] and in Palestine in its entirety... Barcelona wrote on its internet site: 'We will visit Palestine." Palestine and no other. Only in Palestine. Palestine and its definite capital Jerusalem. From Eilat to Rosh HaNikra (i.e., all of Israel, south to north) to the Negev, and to all the Palestinian cities in the north, south, west, and east.
Muhammad Assaf song performance in honor of the Barcelona team visit:
"Come on, everyone sing together:
Oh flying bird, circling around,
My country Palestine is beautiful.
Turn to Safed, and then to Tiberias,
and send regards to the sea of Acre and Haifa.
Don't forget Nazareth - the Arab fortress,
and tell Beit Shean about its people's return.
My country Palestine is beautiful."
