UNRWA bestowed new honors on their official youth idol, Muhammad Assaf, who promotes insurrection and violence.

The United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees (UNRWA) congratulates its Goodwill Ambassador, Mohammad Assaf, on the launch of the film, The Idol, which chronicles his life and the struggles he and his family faced during his childhood, as well as the many challenges that Palestinians face every day in Gaza.

Around 350 people attended the screening of the film at the launch event, which was held on Saturday, 23 January, at the Ramallah Cultural Palace. The film has already been screened at several prestigious international film festivals, including in Toronto, London and Doha.

“We are very excited about the launch of this film, which celebrates the life of a truly remarkable individual,” said Uta Böllhoff, the UNRWA Director of External Relations and Communications, who attended the event. “His story inspires young Palestinians everywhere, and we are proud to have him as our Goodwill Ambassador. His support and dedication have been monumental in our efforts to spread the message of UNRWA and young Palestine refugees to new audiences throughout the region and around the world.”

Mohammad Assaf and the film’s director, Hani Abu Assad, were also in attendance at the event. The video for the ongoing UNRWA campaign, #shareyourwarmth, was also screened before and after the film to encourage viewers to support the Agency’s winterization efforts for Palestine refugees in Syria, Gaza, the West Bank, Lebanon and Jordan.

​The Question remains: Are the lyrics of the UNRWA youth Ambassador not lethal?

How are such honors bestowed upon Mohammad Assaf consonant with the UNRWA motto: “Peace Begins Here”?

Songs of Mohammad Assaf:
“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…”​

Oh motherland these are your sons they will stand by you in hard times.

They rose to fight the conquerors.

Your plains and mountains are witness.
Oh mother be strong.
The resistance will win and victory will come and Al Aqsa will be free.
There is no perseverance like yours in Jerusalem and Afoulah in Nablus, Hebron, and Ramallah.
The legends of your struggle were written by your heroes.
Oh motherland these are your sons.

They will stand by you in hard times.
They rose to fight the conquerors
Your plains and mountains are witness In Nazareth, in Bethlehem, in Jerusalem, in Gaza in Galilee and Um Alfa hem

Oh Jerusalem. I salute your resistance.
You broke your bonds with dignity.

Fight back until you defeat the aggressor.

Oh mother, don’t accept the conqueror from North to South.
Oh motherland, these are your sons.
They will stand by you in hard times.
