Song on PA TV: Tel Aviv (founded by Jews in 1909) used to be a Arab city

Official PA TV program Palestine this Morning
“My homeland, satisfy our desire with your hills
We sow on the coastal plain and live in our desolation
In the past we were serene and there were no enemies living around us
No occupation and no imprisonment
No arrests and handcuffs
Acre, Haifa, Jaffa of the riches (indicating the financial importance of Jaffa before 1948 –Ed.)
Tel Al-Rabi'a (Arabic translation of Tel Aviv, to wrongly imply the existence of an Arab village of that name prior to Tel Aviv, a city founded by Jews in 1909 –Ed.) our land
And the Carmel riding as a horseman on the sea, as the ships ride the port.
Do not ask me at all about our situation
Our nights are like darkness and despondency
Settlers have settled on the hills
Our home, and he comes to expel us.”
