Fatah Airs Video Urging Killing Israelis By Any Means
Fatah, the party of Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas, has called for killing all Israelis throughout the country — “in all their neighborhoods” — in a music video broadcast on the Fatah-run Awdah TV channel last week, Palestinian Media Watch (PMW) reported.
“Pick up your weapon and advance, Jerusalem is calling in pain,” the song’s lyrics say. “Come on, strike them, you have the strength. Turn your anger into the fire of Hell… Besiege them in all their neighborhoods. Drown them in a sea of blood. Kill them as you wish.”
Young Arabs are depicted knocking over and a beating a Jewish man running down a street in Jerusalem wearing a prayer shawl.
This song is yet another blatant example of violent Palestinian incitement emanating from across the societal and political spectrum that continues to encourage near-daily attacks against Jews and Israelis.
The music video also praises two Palestinian terrorists, including Muhammad Halabi, who killed two Israeli civilians in an October stabbing attack. Fatah and the Palestinian Authority (PA) have honored Halabi and other terrorists in the past.
Last April, Abbas awarded medals to the first male and female Fatah members and the group’s first “martyred” terrorist. Abbas has often directly contributed to the violent Palestinian incitement that fuels the ongoing wave of terrorism targeting Israelis.
The latest example of incitement comes amid another terrorist attack, as a Palestinian man was killed after attempting to stab an Israeli soldier in the Hebron area on Tuesday, the Times of Israel reports. Last week, another Palestinian terrorist was killed after seeking to stab Israeli soldiers near the same site — Beit Anun Junction.
