Egyptians Sing ‘Dammi Falastini’ to Israeli Tourists (It Does Not Mean What You Might Think It Means)

Arab media is trumpeting the fact that a group of Egyptians were disgusting towards a group of Israeli tourists.

A group of Egyptians yesterday began dancing and singing the famous Palestinian song ‘My Blood is Palestinian‘ in the coastal city of Dahab after finding out that Israeli tourists were in their presence.

“My blood is Palestinian, my land calls me,” the Egyptians chanted repeating the words of the song ‘Dammi Falastini’ which was recorded by Palestinian from Gaza Mohammed Assaf.

Sounds like something a really (in)famous Egyptian would love to have sung.

Although I have to admit: Dammi Falastini’ sounds like something those who are sick of the rampant terrorism atrocities, and lies perpetrated in their name might utter.

Meanwhile, further on in the report:

According to news reports, the presence of Israeli tourists in the Red Sea resort of Dahab provoked the young Egyptians.

Which is quite emblematic of the entire conflict. Our entire presence in this region provokes the true obstacles to peace.
