The Voice of Palestine radio broadcast a song glorifying suicide bombing just two days after the PA was granted observer status at the UN. According to Palestinian Media Watch, the official Palestinian Authority radio station played the song that included these words:

“We are bombs… the enemies were beheaded… Grieve not, Mother, shed no tears over my torn flesh… heroic men who mock death… We praised the Lord, and set out for Martyrdom (Shahada). We strapped ourselves with explosives, and trusted in Allah… Onward men, on the roads to glory.”

Transcript of song (provided by PMW):

Introductory narration of song:

“We have accepted [our] death, so that Jerusalem will return
We are bombs, friends, when the homeland calls
My heart, with fury, exploded and scattered
The shrapnel of this life flew and the enemies were beheaded
Grieve not, Mother, shed no tears over my torn flesh
Gather [my] bones, Mother, return them to the earth…”

Palestinian singer, Abu Arab:

“Allah Akbar (Allah is Greater)!
If you summon: “Come to self-sacrifice”
You will meet heroic men who mock death…
We praised the Lord, and set out for Martyrdom (Shahada)
We strapped ourselves with explosives, and trusted in Allah
Carry the load, heroes, show disaster to the settler
Neither day nor night will be sweet for him – until he leaves us.
Raise your fire. Raise! Burn the settler with it.
For the sake of Jerusalem and our holy place
We strapped ourselves with explosives
We trusted in [Allah] the Merciful and praised Him for the Martyrdom (Shahada)
Onward, onward, men, on the roads to glory…
We praised the Lord, and set out for Martyrdom (Shahada)
We strapped on the explosives, and trusted in Allah.”

    It is sad, very sad to feel the need to push your children to seek destruction and death to achieve glory instead of glorifying life and push them on the path of of positivism and construction,so that they can find their place in the world respected by everyone for what they do.
    It is also a lack of respect for Allah, God, Adonay or whatever name you want to give to the creator of this wonderful Universe we live in, by not respecting our lives and not protecting the lives of others,or the nature that surround us we spit on his creation, and mock his idea that created different creatures, different beliefs.

    An Israeli organization is helping wounded U.S. veterans move past their physical and psychological challenges by connecting them with injured Israeli soldiers who understand what they’ve been through. “What we discovered very early is that there’s no ‘professional, psychiatrist, social worker’ or anything like that [or] pills that can come even close to helping a soldier who fought in combat, who was wounded, who lost his friends. No one can help him like another person who’s been through exactly what he has,” Rabbi Chaim Levine, […]
