Fatah TV music video with footage of stabbing attack encourages Martyrdom for Al-Aqsa: “O our Martyr, we must follow in your footsteps”
Fatah-run Awdah TV, new music video “Heroes of Al-Aqsa" by singer Firas Al-Burini
Lyrics: "Our Jerusalem, we’re at your service when you ask...
Our Jerusalem is a jewel of gold in the crown of the Arabs
O sun that lights up the homeland and is not extinguished
O [Israeli Prime Minister] Netanyahu, listen or we'll make you listen
Your army needs to disappear from Palestine..."
Visuals of: Stabbing attack by terrorist Muhammad Sa’id Ali, who wounded 3 Israeli police officers
Clashes between Palestinian rioters and Israeli soldiers
"No matter how wide our Al-Aqsa is, there will be no place for you (i.e., Israel)
It won't allow a division (i.e., of prayer times for Muslims and Jews)
If you are not convinced, we'll convince you by force...
O our Martyr, we must follow in your footsteps
The homeland’s wound has been healed by your blow [against Israel]."
Muhammad Sa’id Ali - a 19-year-old Palestinian terrorist who stabbed Israeli police officers near Damascus Gate in the Old City of Jerusalem on Oct. 10, 2015. 3 officers were wounded, one of them severely. The terrorist was shot and killed by Israeli Security Forces during the attack.
"Division" of the Al-Aqsa Mosque refers to a proposed law (May 2013) being reviewed in Israeli Parliament that would allow for both Jews and Muslims to pray on the Temple Mount - what the Palestinians call the Al-Aqsa Mosque plaza. The law seeks to designate separate prayer times and areas of the site for Muslims and Jews. However, Israeli PM Netanyahu has stated on many occasions that the Israeli government has no intention of changing the status quo on the Temple Mount, which means Jews are allowed to enter the Temple Mount, but cannot pray there or engage in any type of worship.
