PA TV Children’s Show from Tel Aviv: One Day We Will Regain Jaffa, Haifa, Acre, and Nazareth

In a children's show that aired on May 22 on the official Palestinian Authority TV channel, a puppet called Marwan is filmed visiting Tel Aviv, where he says: "It used to be Jaffa, and it became Tell Al-Rabi'." The studio host then says: "I am certain that Jaffa - and not only Jaffa, but also Haifa, Acre, Nazareth, and all the Palestinian cities occupied in 1948 - will return to us one day."

Marwan (puppet): "My friends, my home is in Jaffa. Behind me, you can see a city called Tell al-Rabi' ('Tel-Aviv'). Do you know it? Look how beautiful. Look at the sea. Take a picture of what's behind me. It's Tell Al-Rabi'. Check it out. They named it Tell al-Rabi' after they occupied Jaffa. Can you believe it? Take a look. It used to be Jaffa, and it became Tell al-Rabi'."


Host: "We're back dear children. Indeed, you had a great trip, Marwan. You went to Jaffa, saw it, and liked it. Allah willing, we will soon go to Acre. Soon, we will bring flowers to our friends in Acre. I would like to thank my co-host Jihad. My friends, I am certain that Jaffa - and not only Jaffa, but also Haifa, Acre, Nazareth, and all the Palestinian cities occupied in 1948 - will return to us one day, my dear children."
