Priceless! Palestinians Cannot Even Identify Their National Anthem

The Palestinian Information Center has posted a video of the Palestinian National anthem Mawtini in English

(sorry I could not resist)

Here’s the video

The only thing more ridiculous than some of those lyrics is the fact that this is not even their national anthem.

That’s right…Iraq called and asked for its national anthem back!

The palestinian national anthem is Fida’i. And it’s lyrics are way more violent – and hence appropriate for the palestinians.

Warrior, warrior, warrior,
Oh my land, the land of the ancestors
Warrior, warrior, warrior,
Oh my people, people of eternity

With my determination, my fire and the volcano of my vendetta
With the longing in my blood for my land and my home
I have climbed the mountains and fought the wars
I have conquered the impossible, and crossed the frontiers

With the resolve of the winds and the fire of the weapons
And the determination of my nation in the land of struggle
Palestine is my home, and the path of my triumphal
(Palestine is my home, Palestine is my fire,)
Palestine is my vendetta and the land of withstanding

By the oath under the shade of the flag
By my land and nation, and the fire of pain
I will live as a warrior, I will remain a warrior,
I will die as a warrior – until my country returns


It truly speaks volumes about the palestinian identity that some do not even know their national anthem – and even stole one belonging to another country.
