Fatah branch posts video promoting Martyrdom: “Welcome the Martyr… bring the groom… the joy of his mother and father”


Text and video posted on the Facebook page of the Fatah Movement – Nablus Branch

The screenshot shows a scene from the video with a Palestinian woman with her arms raised making cries of joy.

Posted text and lyrics of song heard in the video:
"Welcome the Martyr (Shahid), welcome [him]
Bring the Martyr, bring [him]
Bring the groom (i.e., Martyr's funeral is considered wedding to the 72 Virgins in Paradise in Islam), bring [him]
And wrap him in the flag of the revolution
O the joy of his mother and father
#Palestinian_Martyrs'_Day"

The video shows funerals of "Martyrs," together with the reactions of their mothers, some of whom are making cries of joy, and some of whom are crying. It also shows people throwing rocks. At the end of the video is a logo in Hamas’ colors, green, black and red, a circle made up of a circle divided into three sections, with a dot on each, and in the center the PA map of "Palestine" that presents all of Israel as "Palestine" together with the PA. Below the logo is the following caption, in Arabic and English: "Campaign for Palestinian National Representation"
