PA TV accuses PMW of racism for exposing PA TV song promising conquest of Israel and addes libel about Israel flag
PA TV music video exposed by PMW Oct. 29, 2007:
"We will liberate [Palestine] the Land of Religions.
This land is Arab in history and identity
Palestine is Arab in history and identity
From Jerusalem, Acre, Haifa, Jericho, Gaza and Ramallah
From Bethlehem and Jaffa From Be’er Sheva and Ramle
From Nablus to the Galilee From Tiberias to Hebron."
PA TV attacks PMW following the exposure:
Host: "In an attack on PA TV Israelis say that the song is about Jaffa and Palestinian cities."
Note: PA TV song presented Jaffa and all of Israel as "Palestinian" "to be liberated"
"Maybe, by Israeli thinking, all singers should be forbidden to sing about Jerusalem, Beirut, Marjayoun, Haifa, Acre and Jaffa. What do you think about this racism?"
Nabhan Khriasha, political analyst: "There are [Israelis] who profess that Israel's borders are from the Nile to the Euphrates. Look at the Israeli flag: Two blue stripes and a Star of David in the center. The two blue stripes represent the Euphrates and the Nile. Why doesn't anyone demand that Israel give up its flag?"
Note: The stripes on the Israeli flag are based on the stripes of the Jewish prayer shawl, Tallit.
