Song misrepresents Israeli cities as "Palestine" at Fatah event

Singer Manal Musa: "Oh flying bird, circling round,
My eyes protect you and Allah keeps you safe
By Allah, oh traveling [bird], I burn with envy
My country Palestine is beautiful...
Turn to Safed, and then to Tiberias,
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."
