Song lyrics:  "Because it is the dagger’s sheath and the love of the rifle 
(Text on screen: "The [Fatah] Shabiba Student Movement – volunteering, giving, sacrifice") 
Because it is the [Fatah] Shabiba Student Movement 
Because it is the Shabiba of the Elder [Yasser Arafat] 
And because it is the light and the fire 
Because it is the letter Y [on the ballot], the promise and the loyalty to the Martyrs 
Because its number is 3 [on the ballot] 
Allah! Palestine! Fatah! 
Shabiba's voice thunders while the voice of the delusional fades… 
When you walk on the land, you make it tremble, and you have ascended to the stars in the heavens 
O son of Shabiba, you have reached them, you make the world tremble and you do not tremble… 
Where you walk with it [Shabiba], the world trembles 
We are standing in the line of fire in the dark of the black night 
Facing death like great ones, and pushing away the one who disobeys 
The letter Y is the symbol of honor, O our movement, do not be weakened 
From Birzeit to Gaza, Fatah's victory is certain"

Omar Abu Laila – 19-year-old Palestinian terrorist who stabbed and murdered Israeli soldier Gal Keidan, and shot and murdered Rabbi Achiad Ettinger, a father of 12, at Ariel Junction on March 17, 2019. Abu Laila was killed on March 19, 2019, during an exchange of gunfire with Israeli soldiers who attempted to arrest him.

Yasser Arafat – Founder of Fatah and former chairman of the PLO and PA. During the 1960s, 70s and 80s Arafat was behind numerous terror attacks against Israelis. Although he received the Nobel Peace Prize in 1994 together with then Israeli Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin and then Israeli Minister of Foreign Affairs Shimon Peres “for their efforts to create peace in the Middle East" after signing the Oslo Accords peace agreement, Arafat launched a 5-year terror campaign - the second Intifada (2000-2005) – in which more than 1,000 Israelis were murdered. Arafat died of an illness in 2004.
