Song lyrics: "Salute the first bullet, the revolution, and the heroism,
This is heroic Fatah"

Visual:  Pictures of terrorists holding weapons.

"Salute its heroes, stab a stake into the eye of the traitor,
Say that we are the guardians of the land, there is no one among us that will ever betray you, O Fatah,
And we are its heroes, the first who raised the rifles and spent our lives in the bushes…
All of the squares will bear witness, will tell of the heroism and retell it"

Visual: A picture from a newspaper article about the 1978 terror attack led by Dalal Mughrabi.

Title above picture: "Three groups hijacked a bus between Haifa and Tel Aviv, Israel, 30 killed and 60 injured (sic., 37 murdered, 12 of them children, and over 70 wounded) in the greatest self-sacrificing operation until now"

Visual: Picture of PA Chairman Mahmoud Abbas.

"Fatah member throughout time
Returned the ruse by slaughtering the enemies, salute the one who does not fear death, [who] sacrificed for Jerusalem…
We do not fear war, we attack the tank, we are the victorious wing"

Visual: Picture of two masked people waving a flag featuring the PA map of “Palestine" that presents all of Israel as "Palestine" together with the PA areas in the colors of the keffiyeh (i.e., Arab headdress), and the text: "Returning."

"Woe to anyone who stands before [Fatah], we are Fatah and proud,
We have dug a tunnel in the rocks, and if zero hour arrives, we will bring disarray to the world."

Dalal Mughrabi led the most lethal terror attack in Israel’s history, known as the Coastal Road massacre, in 1978, when she and other Fatah terrorists hijacked a bus on Israel's Coastal Highway, killing 37 civilians, 12 of them children, and wounding over 70.
