When they immigrated from Palestine. Yes. They didn't immigrate. -When Israel occupied Palestine. -Right, Israel occupied Palestine in 1948. We have a performance at the Arab Palestinian Center. Mr.Khaleel, Abd Allah, Miss Isra'a...at Burj al-Barajneh. Is there anyone who doesn't know the Arab Palestinian Center?...They don't know? It's like Al-Sha'ab Front. No, not like Al-Sha'ab Front. This is called a center. A center means... A center means events are held there...cultural and athletic competitions... Let's get down to the details. We have a performance on the 22nd, next Friday... ...at the Arab Palestinian Center. We, Atfal Al-Sumoud Center from Burj al-Barajneh... ...will be participating. This is the program. Our priorities are the dance numbers "Wahda wa Noss"... ..."Shamaliah" and "Draw the Swords." Go ahead, take my place and explain the program! This is the ugliest habit ever! To talk without permission! I am explaining the details. What time should you be here? The performance will be at five o'clock. So you will have to be here after the mid-day prayer. At two o'clock. At two o'clock you all have to be here at the center. We can't on Friday! -What time can you come? -Five. Five. At five we will already be performing. -I have an appointment. -I don't care. You know the performance is on Friday. -Ask permission, ask permission. -We can't. I want to draw your attention to something that, last time, no one listened to. That is, I want all the boys to wear white socks. Next Friday, I want all the boys to wear white socks. The girls should wear beige leggings. That's one thing. When we are done today, I want to get the shoe sizes of those who are new. Like Dua'a, Aya, Isra'a, Aya, Jamila. Those who came recently, I want to know their shoe sizes. Remind me to take down your shoes sizes, okay? I am explaining the program. So our priorities are "Wahdah wa Noss," "Shamaliah," and "Draw the Swords." As for "Al-Karadia," if we finish it today, we will perform it. If we don't finish it, we won't perform it. Because Burj Al-Barajneh is going to perform "Al-Karadia." But the adult group is going to perform it so, if we did it, it wouldn't affect the program. We haven't learned it! What language am I speaking? I'm speaking Arabic here! If we finish it today, we'll perform it. If we don't finish it, we won't. That's the first thing. The second thing... Do you remember the time we went to Vista School? You were very, very disciplined. I want the exact same discipline. The same thing, especially as far as your clothes. I don't want you to play with your belts or clips. We will change costumes twice at the Arab Palestinian Center. Once for "Sharpen the Swords"... Twice... At two o'clock you should be here... ...the boys wearing white socks and girls must bring pins. Each girl should bring six or seven pins. I will bring them for you tomorrow. Another thing... Don't come wearing a suit. Wear a pajamas or shorts because you will get dressed here. Don't come here wearing a suit, or hair gel, or whatever. Do you hear me? You will get dressed here and leave from here dressed in your costume. This is not a discussion! Do you understand me? I'm speaking Arabic! Do not come dressed up. Because you will practice here before going to the Arab Center. Do you hear me? You'll sweat and you'll want to change your clothes. Do I make myself clear? Put the sword down. I've told you 20 times, 20 times... Let's quickly do "Sharpen the Swords." Quickly, "Sharpen the Swords." I want four girls, four. Four girls. Who has memorized it? -Get up. -Go ahead. Come on! I will put on "Sharpen the Swords." I don't want a single mistake. Here we go. Shalabi, when I say "Come on, let's practice," I don't mean for you to move all over the place. Isn't it enough that you were absent last Friday? And you know you have two warnings, not just one. -You told me not to come! -I told you not to come! Here we go. Spread out, spread out. Sharpen the swords, come one press it to the flint ♫ Jerusalem, Jaffa, and Haifa, the most beautiful of lands ♫ Sharpen the swords, come one press it to the flint ♫ Jerusalem, Jaffa, and Haifa, the most beautiful of lands ♫ Oh beautiful woman, oh sweetheart. How beautiful she dances! ♫ Oh beautiful woman, oh sweetheart. How beautiful she dances! ♫ Let's go and help ♫ Let's go and help ♫ Speak, don't keep a secret and don't be afraid ♫ And tell our story to the whole world ♫ Speak, don't keep a secret and don't be afraid ♫ And tell our story to the whole world ♫ The first spark came from Jaffa...♫ Let's go and help ♫ Blow, wind of my beloved country ♫ Speak, don't keep a secret and don't be afraid ♫ And tell our story to the whole world ♫ Sharpen the swords, come one press it to the flint ♫ Jerusalem, Jaffa, and Haifa, the most beautiful of lands ♫ Sharpen the swords, come one press it to the flint ♫ Jerusalem, Jaffa, and Haifa, the most beautiful lands ♫ How beautiful the rocks of my country and how beautiful the soldiers' dance ♫ How beautiful the rocks of my country and how beautiful the soldiers' dance ♫ Soldiers, destroy the advancing army ♫ Soldiers, destroy the advancing army ♫ Soldiers, destroy the advancing army ♫ Soldiers, destroy the advancing army ♫ Sharpen the swords, come one press it to the flint ♫ Jerusalem, Yafa, and Haifa, the most beautiful lands ♫ Sharpen the swords, come one press it to the flint ♫ Jerusalem, Yafa, and Haifa, the most beautiful lands ♫ Sharpen the swords, come one press it to the flint ♫ Jerusalem, Yafa, and Haifa, the most beautiful of lands ♫ Sharpen the swords, come one press it to the flint ♫ Jerusalem, Yafa, and Haifa, the most beautiful of lands ♫ Give me the swords. It's clear who is familiar with the folklore. This is folklore, not decor! Get back in line. First of all, a pointer for the boys. Draw the sword. I told you this is a sword not a decoration. If it were a decoration, I would hold it like this. Your sword should be here, held in this fashion. This sword, when I walk out, it should be like this. I come out as a soldier, not just walking. I come out one, two, three, four, five, six.
