UNRWA Youth Ambassador sings on PA TV: The Galilee, Nazareth, Afula are part of the “homeland”

Official PA TV program Good Morning Jerusalem

"[UNRWA Regional Youth Ambassador] Mohammed Assaf's song: Mother, these are your men."

In the background are pictures of rock throwers and terrorists' funeral processions.

"We are your people, O homeland, our head will not bow.
We are your soldiers when tested, [full of] courage, heroism, and honor
Even if the price is our lives, our lives are of little value compared to you
O homeland, greater than any [other] homeland, with all your heroes and noble
O mother, these are your people
In times of trouble they carry the burden for you
They revolt in order to fight the occupiers
Your plains and hills bear witness to this
O Mother, be strong
Because of the resolve, you will pass the night
And because of your patience your victory is imminent
The horses neigh toward the Al-Aqsa Mosque
There is no resolve like yours in all the world
In Jerusalem and Afula
And in Nablus, Hebron and Ramallah there is heroism
The tale of your battle, O mother,
And your history were written by your heroes
In Nazareth, Bethlehem, and Gaza there are heroes
And in the Galilee and Umm Al-Fahm they challenged the horror
Some died as Martyrs (Shahids), some were wounded
And their blood was a sacrifice for it
And the blood of our dear one runs, does not stop, falls as a waterfall
We drew the map of independence
On your land and sands
Jerusalem, I salute your resolve, until they cut your bonds
You hold your head up
And the suffering gives you strength
And we salute those with resolve
Who resist the occupiers
They responded to them doubly and gave them a bitter taste
O mother, we will not agree that a stranger be found between your north and your south"
