After censoring it under pressure from a pro-Israel lobby, Spotify releases the song ‘My blood is Palestinian’ again

A vibrant ode to Palestine, the song “ My blood is Palestinian » What intones with all his heart Mohammed Assaf, the famous artist from Gaza, would it have resonated in some ears like a declaration of love a little too fiery?

Pro-Zionist ears, in this case those of the British lobby We Believe In Israel »which only hymns to the glory of Israel rock gently and pleasantly.

Pro-Zionist ears that were so fired up by the lyrics of the hugely popular Palestinian song that they called it… anti-Semitism! The specious accusation par excellence, which Israel uses as a weapon of massive deterrence and drops like a cleaver, in this case to better muzzle Mohammed Assaf.

From the United Kingdom where the zealous campaigners of ” We Believe in Israel » are raging, in the fury of their pro-Israeli propaganda which hurts many ears, an online petition initiated by them recently caused a stir… It demanded the outright removal of the angry song from Spotify, the Swedish platform music streaming, and Apple Music, to the amazement of Mohammed Assaf and his many admirers around the world.

The Palestine Chronicle was immediately moved by this on its website, stating that “ Spotify and Apple Music have decided to remove the song “Ana Dammi Falastini” (My blood is Palestinian) by Mohammed Assaf, following allegations of anti-Semitism “.

Mohammed Assaf did not hide his amazement from the Al-Araby journalist al-Jadeed who received his hot reaction in London. He confided that he had received an official email informing him of the censorship which hit him brutally, blithely passing his song by the wayside.

For Israel, erasing Palestine from the map and erasing the Palestinian people from the history of their own homeland has always been a strategic undertaking. wrote Ramzy Baroud, editor-in-chief of The Palestine Chronicle, indignantly, commenting on Israel’s decision to prevent the Palestinian singer from returning home to the land where he was born.

Fortunately, a few days after this pitiful capitulation to the diktat of one of the most influential pro-Israeli lobbies, Spotify returned to better feelings, its managers probably realizing, under the public outcry, that they were seriously mistaken. All’s well that ends well, dare we say…

To the great relief of Mohammed Assaf and his thousands of fans, his magnificent ode to Palestine has reappeared as if by magic on Spotify, unearthed from the dustbin where the fervent laudators of Israel would have gladly and angrily left it to rot. (see music video and lyrics below)

Mohammed Assaf, winner of Arab Idol in 2013, was able to count on the tremendous mobilization of his many supporters around the world

The lyrics of the song by Mohammed Assaf

My blood is Palestinian.
My promise and my oath,
On my land, you will find me,
I belong to my people, I sacrifice my soul for them

My blood is Palestinian, Palestinian, Palestinian
My blood is Palestinian

We stand up for you, our homeland
With our pride and our Arabness.
The land of Al-Quds called us
(Like) my mother’s voice is calling me

Palestinian, Palestinian
My blood is Palestinian

My promise and my oath,
On my land, you will find me,

I belong to my people, I sacrifice my soul for them
My blood is Palestinian, Palestinian, Palestinian
My blood is Palestinian

Oh mother don’t worry
Your homeland is a castle
For whom I sacrifice my soul
And my blood, and my veins
My promise and my oath,

On my land, you will find me,
I belong to my people, I sacrifice my soul for them
My blood is Palestinian, Palestinian, Palestinian
My blood is Palestinian

I am Palestinian, son of a free family
I’m brave and my head is always held high
I keep my oath to you my homeland
And I never bowed to anyone

Palestinian, Palestinian
My blood is Palestinian
My promise and my oath,
On my land, you will find me,

I belong to my people, I sacrifice my soul for them
My blood is Palestinian, Palestinian, Palestinian
My blood is Palestinian
