Israeli-Arab Doctors Demand ‘Palestinian’ Anthem at Ceremony: “Our Youth will not Tire, Until your Independence, Or they will Die”

The angel of Hashem said to her further, “Behold, you are with child And shall bear a son; You shall call him Ishmael, For Hashem has paid heed to your suffering. He shall be a wild ass of a man; His hand against everyone, And everyone’s hand against him; He shall dwell alongside of all his kinsmen.” Genesis 16 11-12 (The Israel Bible™)

Tens of Israeli-Arab dentists (who work in Israel) took part in an international convention for dentists in Colombia. Their expenses were paid for by the Israeli-Arab Dentists Association – an organization with thousands of dentists throughout Israel reports Channel 20.

Towards the end of the summit, when each representative heard their national anthem, the Israeli-Arab dentists refused to have the Israeli national anthem (Hatikvah) played and instead, demanded the ‘Palestinian’ national anthem written by Ibrahim Touqan.

The Organization’s chairman, Dr. Fachri Hasan, who is also a top dentist at the Clalit HMO, told Channel 20 that: “We were stuck in a situation whereby the Colombians were singing their national anthem.  So we have our national anthem.”

After suggesting that their anthem was the Hatikvah, Dr. Hasan corrected the interviewer saying: “No, we do not identify with the Hatikvah. That song has nothing to do with us, and if you expect that Israeli Arabs will stand and sing the Hatikvah, then you are delusional.” Hassam added that “We won’t identify with the Hatikvah. It has nothing to do with us just like the Israeli  flag has nothing to do with us.”

Israel’s health ministry condemned the incident but noted that the organization doesn’t receive any public funds.

The entire text of the ‘Palestinian’ national anthem is as follows:

My homeland, My homeland
Majesty and beauty, sublimity and splendor,
Are in your hills, are in your hills,
Life and deliverance, pleasure and hope
Are in your air, are in your air
When will I see you? When will I see you?
Secure and prosperous
Victorious and honored
Will I see you in your eminence
Reaching the stars, reaching the stars?
My homeland, my homeland
My homeland, my homeland
Our youth will not tire, until your independence
Or they will die, or they will die
We will drink from death and never be to our enemies
Like slaves, like slaves
We do not want, we do not want
An eternal humiliation nor a miserable life,
An eternal humiliation nor a miserable life,
We do not want, but we will bring back
Our great glory, our great glory
My homeland, my homeland
My homeland, My homeland
The sword and the pen not talk nor quarrel
Are our symbols, are our symbols
Our glory and our covenant and a duty to be faithful
Arouse us, arouse us
Our glory, Our glory
Is an honorable cause and a waving banner
Is an honorable cause and a waving banner
O, behold you in your eminence
Victorious over your enemies
My homeland, My homeland
