    Abbas' Fatah movement to Israelis:

"Stop and consider, sons of Zion, 

that death is near,

All you'll get from us is death"

 

by Itamar Marcus and Nan Jacques Zilberdik

 

Only four days after the kidnapping of the three Israeli youths, Mahmoud Abbas' Fatah movement posted a video on its Facebook page promising Israelis: "Death is near." [Facebook, "Fatah - The Main Page," June 16, 2014]

 

The song promotes violence and destruction in the name of Allah, as it calls to "smash the fortress of the hopeless" and "shout: 'Allah is Greater'" and states that "the remains of our bodies and our blood are a song of rage."


Fatah's military wing, the Al-Aqsa Martyrs' Brigades, is described as "the rival in the land who burns the foreign enemy" and who will "reach the enemy everywhere." Israelis and/or Jews are addressed directly and promised death:


"Stop and consider, sons of Zion, that death is near...

All you'll get from us is death

Stop and consider a thousand times

That a revolution sparks with a flame

Fatah is like a rock, whose soldiers love to fight"

The visuals of the video promote violence through numerous images of Fatah fighters engaged in fighting and holding weapons. The video also shows pictures of grieving Israelis, a wounded Israeli soldier and Israeli medics with a stretcher at the scene of a terror attack.


Palestinian Media Watch has documented other explicit threats made by Fatah against Israelis. In January, a video promised to "turn the beloved [Gaza] Strip into a graveyard for your [Israel's] soldiers," and to "turn Tel Aviv into a ball of fire."


In May, Fatah posted a film glorifying some of the most lethal terror attacks against Israelis as "
great operations" -- including the Coastal Road massacre, in which 37 were murdered, and the killing of 11 Israeli athletes at the Munich Olympics.

 

Fatah is headed by PA Chairman Mahmoud Abbas. Its military wing, the Al-Aqsa Martyrs' Brigades, has been declared a terrorist organization by the US, Canada, the EU and others.

The following is a longer excerpt of the Fatah song promising death to Israelis:

"Fatah, mother of men 

Smash the fortress of the hopeless 
And shout: 'Allah is Greater' 
Every chain will break... 
The remains of our bodies and our blood are a song of rage... 
For you, sun of truth, gallop forward... 
Gallop and fight bravely 
Today you'll achieve your victory 
Fatah soldiers, rise and saddle the noble steed 
Announce that [you are] the rival in the land who burns the foreign enemy 
O [Al-Aqsa Martyrs'] Brigades, draw your determination from us and react 
Announce that [you will] reach the enemy everywhere... 
Stop and consider, sons of Zion, that death is near... 
All you'll get from us is death 
Stop and consider a thousand times 
That a revolution sparks with a flame 
Fatah is like a rock, whose soldiers love to fight... 
Cry out loud with me 
Cry out loud with me: Long live Fatah! 
Long live Fatah!"
