Palestinian Authority Welcomed Obama With Communist Song

Daniel Greenfield, a Shillman Journalism Fellow at the Freedom Center, is a New York writer focusing on radical Islam. He is completing a book on the international challenges America faces in the 21st century.


Obama’s arrival in Ramallah began with a really horrible musical rendition of the National Anthem, then it continued with a bad rendition of the terrorist national anthem pledging eternal war against the Jews whose music was composed by a Greek leftist who claimed that Jews run everything.

And then just to make matters worse, as noted by Maria Meylikhova, the Palestinian band launches into Polyushko Pole aka Meadowlands, a song about the Russian Civil War between the Reds and Whites.

The lyrics for Polyushko Pole come from Viktor Gusev’s “A Poem about a Komsomol Soldier”. The Komsomol was the All-Union Leninist Young Communist League. The music for Polyushko Pole was composed by Lev Kniper, an NKVD agent, a predecessor of the KGB.

The lyrics include such lines as “The heroes ride over the field/Hey, the heroes of the Red Army” and “Hey, while on the collective farms/The work is efficiently progressing.”

The music has gone around and been used in a number of other places since then, but it’s still a startling choice to greet the head of the American government.

But then again it might be one of the few things that Obama and Abbas have in common. Abbas was a graduate of the Patrice Lumumba University in Moscow aka the Peoples’ Friendship University of Russia. And Obama has his own Red background. An old Communist song playing while Obama shakes hands with the leaders of terrorist groups started up with KGB input and guidance is just one of those subtle bonding references.

      The facts of the matter are: the progenitor of the PA Arab "identity", Arafat", the godfather of suicide bombing, was given his tutelage by the communists in the Soviet Union and Romania. In fact, he and his protege, Abbas, aka Abu Mazen, were schooled in the Soviet Union, so much so that Abbas wrote his thesis on Holocaust denial there!
      Moreover, communism and Islamism are twin ideologies, whose basis is totalitarian in nature. People get confused, they believe that Islam is a religion, therefore, it can't join hands with atheist communism. Nonsense. Islam is, first and foremost, a set of political constructs, wholly based on submission, hence, its totalitarian nature.
      In any case, the "red/green" alliance is more than self evident, as Obama is devoted to both, as are the Islamists – http://adinakutnicki.com/2012/08/17/valerie-jarre

      If that was a picture of Jesus or a cross he would make them cover it up like he did here.

    The irony is that although Islam and Communism are theologically and politically in conflict with each other, they are also cut from the same cloth.
    It's not surprising then that they exchange and share symbols, music, mottoes and whatever.

    Nothing unites foes like a mutual enemy and the common enemy to Islam and Communism is freedom and the word of God!

      Commies and Muslims both have the same type ideology.
      They both demand submission

      Yeah, why doesn't he just go do the Calipha he is itching to do so bad and leave us alone

    I just read the translation of the song. And I'll say this,it ain't anything I'd ever want to listen too.

    • jakespoon

      Bet you Barack sang along.

      • beez

        Oh yeah he did. He was clapping with the tempo too.

    I was wondering why the Palestinians didn't sing their own national anthem instead of a communist song? Interesting.

    • Steeloak

      Because the entire "Palestinian" movement was a creation of the Soviet KGB, as described in this article by Ion Pacepa, former acting chief of the Romanian Foreign Intelligence service: http://www.weizmann.ac.il/home/comartin/israel/pa
