(IsraelNN.com) This week, a show on Palestinian Educational TV called for an Arab â€œreturnâ€ to Jaffa, Akko, Caesarea, Ashdod and Ashkelon.
The program, which was about Jaffa and its Palestinian connection, concluded with the following words of a song by poet Muhammad Darwish: â€œThe time has come for you [the Israelis] to leave. Live wherever you want, but just donâ€™t live among us. The time has come for you to leave. Die wherever you want, but donâ€™t die among us. We have the past here, and we have the present, the present and the future. Leave our land, our continent, our sea, our wheat, our salt, our wound. Everything! Leave our memory behind.â€
