The Israel Border Police, a branch of the Israel Defense Forces, has been making headlines lately, due to its major role in combating the surge of Palestinian terrorism that began in September. Known in Israel by its abbreviation, “Magav,” not only has it foiled many attacks, it has suffered casualties as well.

Today, however, it provided some comic relief for the Israeli public, in the form of a music video.

The three-minute clip — posted by the Israeli news site nrg on Monday — is the Border Police’s response to a video uploaded to YouTube last month by Hamas, the Palestinian terrorist organization that controls the Gaza Strip.

The Hamas video is a jihadist rendition of Israeli hit “Mi She Ma’amin Lo Mefahed” (“He who has faith is not afraid”), sung by Mizrahi pop star Eyal Golan, with lyrics in Hebrew and subtitles in Arabic, warning the “Zionists” that they will be killed.

The Border Police video, which also uses Golan’s music, opens with an Israeli guy watching the Hamas clip on his computer. When he’s done, he shuts his laptop and begins donning his uniform.

In the next scene, he is seen flanked by two other Border Policemen, and he begins to sing. (Note: English lyrics here translated by The Algemeiner. The original rhymes.)

We heard your song, and we’ve also got a message for you.
If you lay a hand on any rabbi of ours again,

You’ll instantly feel the strength of the Border Police.
You’ve made a bit of a mess here, forgetting how dangerous it is for you.

We haven’t used the big guns yet;
Selfie sticks and nunchakus are enough for you [a reference to different Israeli civilians who used both items to help subdue terrorists in the recent wave of stabbing attacks].
There is no balance of power here,
Like in a match between Sahnin and Real Madrid [a local Israeli-Arab soccer team and Spanish champions].

Border Police, both conscripts and reserve soldiers,
Are letting all civilians know: We will defend you everywhere,
In war and in peace. You listen here, terrorists:
Stop ruining our songs. If you touch another song of Eyal’s [Eyal Golan],
We’ll send you Keren and Meital [here they show two female border policewomen who became famous for thwarting terrorist attacks].

And all for a few virgins,
Who never shave,
And even if you have sex with them,
They’re looking for serious relationships.

We’re giving you guys one last chance,
Because our response will not be moderate.
Border Police, both conscripts and reservists,
Are letting all civilians know:
Just know that during war or peace
We’ll defend you everywhere.

You listen here now, terrorists:
Stop singing songs off-key.
If you touch a song by Eyal again,
We’ll send you back to Gaza on a camel.

The video concludes with the men singing the Border Police anthem.
