Song lyrics: "Expel the thieving occupier from the enraged land of Jerusalem,
Rid your house of that one, that Zionist in his humiliation,
Write ‘death, death, death to Israel ’ with flowing blood,
And with the bleeding body cause death, death, death to Israel."

Text onscreen in Hebrew: “Death to Israel”

Hamas leader Nizar Rayan: "Khaibar, Khaibar, O Jews
The soldiers of Muhammad have started to return."

Visuals: Funeral of Israeli terror victims

Song lyrics: "Be red death. Have no mercy on the army of aggression that wears the clothes of the soldier and the settler.”

Khaibar is the name of the last Jewish village defeated by Muhammad's army in 628. Many Jews were murdered in the battle, which marked the end of Jewish presence in Arabia. There are Muslims who see this event as a precursor to future wars against Jews. At extremist gatherings and rallies, this slogan is often chanted as a threat to Jews implying that they should expect to be defeated and murdered again by Muslims.
