WATCH: Palestinian Pop Song – ‘We Are A Thorn In The Throat Of Zionism’

TEL AVIV – Palestinians are a “thorn in the throat of Zionism” who have given Israel “a taste of grief,” according to a new pop song broadcast on official Palestinian Authority television.

The up-tempo song, translated by Israeli watchdog Palestinian Media Watch (PMW), incites Palestinians to violence against Israelis, proclaiming, “We have given them a taste of grief – a thorn in the throat of Zionism!”

At one point, the kaffiyeh-clad singer holds a child and sings, “We swear in the name of the prisoners, in place of one [prisoner], here are ten!”

The lyrics imply that the number of prisoners will increase tenfold in correlation with an upsurge in violence.

The singer films Arabs from the Israeli cities of Jaffa, Haifa, Lod, Ramle, Acre, Nazareth, Galilee, Beersheva, Tiberias, Safed, Beit Shean, and Jerusalem but does not distinguish between those filmed in Palestinian cities such as Jenin.

The inference relates to the oft-repeated Palestinian claim that all of sovereign Israel belongs to “Palestine.”

Below is a translated excerpt of the song:

We are not afraid of the enemy – a thorn in the throat of Zionism!

Palestinians – We are! We are!

The people of Jerusalem – We are! We are!

The people of Jenin – We are! We are! …

The people of Gaza…

The people of Jaffa – We are! We are!

The people of Haifa – We are! We are!

The people of Lod – We are! We are!

The people of Ramle

The people of Acre – We are! We are!

The people of Nazareth – We are! We are! …

We swear in the name of the prisoners

In place of one [prisoner], here are ten

We have given them [Israelis] a taste of grief

We have given them a taste of grief – a thorn in the throat of Zionism!
