Will PA's New 'Arab Idol' Song Replace Hamas Hit?

A new song calling for the elimination of Israel by Mohammed Assaf of Gaza, who won the "Arab Idol" singing contest last June, is all the rage on Palestinian Authority (PA) TV, where it has been playing heavily since its first broadcast July 29.

Now Palestinian Media Watch has translated the new "summer hit," in which Assaf sings "O Gaza, sacrifice your men liberally; each of them is worth two," and "It's either victory or Martyrdom." He also calls for "Palestine" to replace Israel, "from the [Jordan] water to the [Mediterranean] water."
