PA TV song misrepresents Israeli cities as "Palestine," at festival under auspices of PA PM Fayyad

Sign: "Under the auspices of Prime Minister Dr. Salam Fayyad: The 3rd Summer Nights Festival in Jerusalem"

Song: "Oh flying bird, circling around,
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.
Oh flying bird, circling around,
by Allah, oh traveling [bird], I burn with envy.
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."
