As I’ve mentioned before, January 1 is the 49th anniversary of Fatah’s first terror attack. No one seems to know the anniversary of Fatah’s founding – Fatah terrorism is all any Arab cares to celebrate.
In honor of the occasion, a Palestinian Arab singer created this video highlighting – what else? – Fatah militarism and violence.
The lyrics are nothing special:
I’m proud of the sons of Fatah/The coat of arms of which is the keffiyeh/with the olive branch and gun/I’ll protect the homeland with weapons in my hand Our weapons are Abu Mazen and strong will/loving you streams in my veins… We’ve learned from the old man (i.e. Arafat) what is freedom/How to sacrifice all that is dear to us and not to give up on the cause Abu Ammar (i.e. Arafat) taught us what is freedom/How to sacrifice all that is dear to us and not to give up on the cause We’re proud of this Fatah salute/greeting/May Allah protect you of fedayeen brothers/….Whatever happens, you are our identity…
But the visuals show the importance of violence for the culture of Fatah.
I like the tiny nod to Abu Mazen (Mahmoud Abbas) among the dozens of video clips of Arafat while calling him a “weapon.”
Also the shooting at the ground is a nice touch.
