“The blood of the Martyrs flows in my veins… I harvest the souls… The Dark-Eyed [Virgins] yearn for me” – poem honoring terrorist on PA TV

Official PA TV program Good Morning Jerusalem

Official PA TV host: “About the Martyr from Jerusalem Abd Al-Rahman Abu Jamal (terrorist, wounded 4 -Ed.) we say:
I am the Palestinian lion cub
I was planted in my land, like the olive and fig tree
My roots reach Canaan
The blood of the Martyrs flows in my veins,
I am like a lion in the fields [of battle]
If the drums of war call,
I harvest the souls in the fields
I guard the Al-Aqsa [Mosque] and the [Dome of the] Rock
My eyes will not close, and my head will not bow
I am the Palestinian lion cub
The armies of treachery fear me
The Dark-Eyed [Virgins] yearn for me
I have not sold my homelands, and have not given up my assault rifle.
Today I carry my shrouds, and in my heart my faith strengthens
Because victory and liberation are coming at the hands of the lion cubs."

The Dark-Eyed” refers to the 72 Virgins in Paradise who the Martyr marries according to Islamic tradition.
