British Foreign Office Olympics promotion includes 'Palestinian' singing about 'occupation'

One of the clips uploaded to a British Foreign Office website, which is designed to promote the Summer 2012 Olympics in London, features a British 'Palestinian' rapping about how she is free from 'occupation' in Britian.
In Mansour's clip, which has been published on the website, she expresses how proud she is of the fact that she can "walk around comfortably in Britain" and that she has the right to choose her own path.

She describes her childhood in Britain and the values and Arab music she grew up on while at the same time, videos of the separation fence, Arabs squeezed together at a checkpoint and Israeli soldiers checking their ID cards as well as images of an Arab mother carrying her baby and children waiting at the checkpoint are shown as she speaks.

The words of the song playing in the background describe how Mansour identifies with the Palestinian people's "pain" and the forgotten children who had no one to care for them "during the cruel operation" -she is most likely referring to 1948 as images from that time also appear in the clip.

"Growing up, living in Britain, I used to feel very British. Now I feel very Palestinian," she declares in the clip and adds "going to Palestine really made me appreciate the privileges we have here, you do actually have a chance here to have your voice heard."

Mansour's voice is heard throughout the world – in the US she performed in New York, Chicago, Milwaukie, San Francisco and Los Angeles, she also went on tour in Holland. In songs she uploaded to Youtube she calls on the Arab nation to unite.
Let's go to the videotape.

Well, I hope she'll stay in Britain.

Here's some garbage from the FCO page:
"In an unprecedented show of support, all 193 UN Member States co-sponsored the Resolution, signing up to the ideals of peace and conflict resolution and the premise that individuals, not countries, compete against each other in sport in peaceful competition without the burden of politics, religion, or racism."http://www.fco.gov.uk/en/global-issues/london-2012/olympic-truce
A veritable cess-pit of anti-Israel orgs!!

"Occupied Palestinian Territories Profile

Israel is a country in which a number of religions and cultures mix. People feel strongly about their beliefs and customs, and you should be aware of this at all time. For example, it is not wise to go into Jewish ultra-orthodox areas of Jerusalem on Shabbat (from sunset on Friday to sunset on Saturday). Dress modestly in Jerusalem, the West Bank, and Gaza.

Be aware that during the Muslim holy month of Ramadan eating, drinking, and smoking between sunrise and sunset are forbidden for Muslims (though not for children under the age of eight). Although alcohol will be available in some hotels and restaurants, drinking alcohol elsewhere may cause offence. As a courtesy, you may wish to avoid drinking, eating, and smoking in public places in the OPTs during Ramadan. See our Travelling during Ramadan page."

Shy Guy,

Britain is a nice country. We have our problems and idiots in power like everyone else. Give us a break.
