Song performed by young girls on stage at the rally:
“Oh flying bird, circling around,
My eyes protect you and Allah keeps you safe
By Allah, oh traveling [bird], I burn with envy.
My country Palestine is beautiful.
Go to Jenin and bring me from its valley greetings to Nablus,
Tulkarem and their soil.
Drink the water of Jaffa's port,
don't forget Ramle and Ramallah.
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.”
