Brother, The Oppressors Have Gone Too Far: A Palestinian Incitement Song

Posted by Palestinian Media Watch, this video clip reveals how the official Palestinian Authority television channel began to rebroadcast a song calling for terror that was popular during the Second Intifada in 2017 and 2018, in the wake of US President Donald Trump’s recognition of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. The lyrics, translated below and on screen, call on the Arab people to unite in an armed struggle against Israel to defend the Palestinian people, Jerusalem, holy sites, and the land of Palestine. 

Brother, The Oppressors Have Gone Too Far

Brother, the oppressors have gone too far
Therefore Jihad is necessary
and self-sacrifice is necessary…
How can we let them steal the Arabness –
the glory of the forefathers and the rule? …
Draw your sword from its sheath, and
let it not return to the sheath afterwards…
Brother, rise to [Jerusalem],
the [first] direction of prayer
We will defend the church
and the mosque…
Brother, if my blood will flow in the soil,
and my hand will lay on its stones
Then find a free soul that has refused
to let enemies step on it
Kiss a Martyr on the land, who called on
its behalf to Allah and fell as a Martyr…
Palestine, the young people
will redeem your territory
May the self-sacrificing fighter
and the redeemed [land] be exalted
Palestine, our chests will defend you – life or death.
