PA Chairman Mahmoud Abbas listens to a song calling for the conquest of all of Israel.

Palestinian Authority TV keeps reinforcing the message that all of Israel is Palestinian land. A song stating that “Jaffa, Acre, Haifa, and Nazareth are ours,” has been broadcast more than 15 times, most recently on October 5th.

The song, called On the way to Jerusalem, mentions cities and places all over Israel, but declares them “Palestinian.” This is a clear example of the PA’s policy to present a world in which Israel does not exist and is replaced by “Palestine.”


Since we at Palestinian Media Watch first reported on the song in May 2011, it has appeared approximately once a month on PA TV.

PA TV has also broadcast another song with a similar message numerous times:

Rubio Comes Out Swinging

US Senator Marco Rubio was cool as a cucumber, appropriately aggressive, and sharp as a tack in Thursday's Republican presidential debate. In...

“I am returning to you, oh land. From Rafah to Rosh Hanikra (northern Israel) our coast, and Beit Shean (Israeli city)… From Haifa (Israeli city) and Tantura to the [Jordan] valley (i.e., all of Israel). I am returning to you, the purest land, oh land of the free.”

This song was performed in front of PA Chairman Abbas and other senior PA officials at a Fatah event in 2011. Since then, PA TV has broadcast it more than 30 times.

PA TV is directly controlled by the office of PA Chairman Mahmoud Abbas.

Below are the words of the song On the way to Jerusalem:

“Jaffa, Acre, Haifa, and Nazareth are ours. [ I ], Muhammad, sing about the Galilee and the Golan (Heights). Jaffa, Acre, Haifa and Nazareth are ours. [ I ], Kabha, sing about the Galilee and the Golan (Heights). From Bethlehem to Jenin is Palestinian, Ramle, Lod and Sakhnin are Palestinian.

Nowhere is more beautiful than Jerusalem; no matter how much we travel. From Safed to Al-Badhan (near Nablus) is Palestinian; Tiberias and Ashkelon are Palestinian.” – [PA TV (Fatah), May 13, 2011 and June 24, July 14, July 15 (twice),  Aug. 20, Sept. 2, 2011,  and again Jan. 5, 8, Feb. 25, March 19, April 6, July 27, Aug. 3, 10, 23, and Oct. 5, 2012]

Note: Jaffa, Acre, Haifa, Nazareth, the Galilee, the Golan Heights, Lod, Ramle, Jerusalem, Safed, Tiberias and Ashkelon are Israeli cities and places.
Below are the words of the song from the Fatah event:

“We commit and promise to stand behind you, oh Mahmoud Abbas, until Judgment Day. I am returning to you, the purest land, oh land of the free. No matter how long the nights of exile, I am returning to you, oh land. From Rafah to Rosh Hanikra (northern Israel) our coast, and Beit Shean (Israeli city). Above your soil, oh my land, is a picture of Garden of Eden. From Rafah to Rosh Hanikra our coast, and Beit Shean. Above your soil, oh my land, is a picture of Garden of Eden. From Rafah to Rosh Hanikra, north and south, are the picture’s borders. From Haifa (Israeli city) and Tantura to the [Jordan] valley (i.e., all of Israel). I am returning to you, the purest land, oh land of the free.” – [PA TV (Fatah), broadcast dozens of times in 2011, Jan. 22, 2012 and Feb. 4, 8, March 5 (twice), April 20, May 12, 30, June 4, July 14, Aug. 5, 13, 22, and Sept. 6, 2012]

    We Jews should co-opt that song and sing it on every anniversary of the Six-Day War, the same way the Alter Rebbe (Shneur Zalman of Liadi) “bought” Napoleon’s March from the French soldiers marching into Russia; the same way our Rebbe, MHM, taught us to sing “L’Chai Olamim” to the melody of the Marseilles.

    Plus, it’s got a good beat and you can dance to it.

      Addition: Except we will substitute Mahmoud Abbas with HaKadosh Boruch Hu.

        And replace Mohammed with Moshiach.

    may you eventually see the light, and the follies of your campaign… when the jew-hating arabs, when the death-loving arabs, when the self-pitying arabs begin to love life, when they begin to accept that their woes are self-driven, when they appreciate life more than death, there shall be a chance for peace…

    why is it that every single war and skirmish across the globe includes at least one side’s being muslim? answer me THAT!!!!!
