A Palestinian living in France has written a song that has arguably become the anthem for the upcoming Palestinians bid for statehood in the United Nations later on this week, according to a Ma’an report.

The songwriter, Ahmed Dari, who worked for the United Nations’ Educational, Social and Cultural Organization until recently, composed “Mestani Dawla be Aylol” – “I Am Waiting for a State in September” – in a witty way, using a tortoise to symbolize the slow pace of the Palestinian quest for statehood, Ma’an said.
