“O soils of beloved forgotten land, with precious blood precious, you’re irrigated. We have all the rights, we are all for it/ My land is from the river to the sea . Your son Gaza will not be disgraced. Lift your head up high it is your weapon. The origin of dignity is humanity.
We will protect the land/ It’s either victory or martyrdom, the men of this land said.
Take my blood and give me freedom. My land is from the river to the sea. Take my blood and give me freedom. My land is from the river to the sea…”
