Palestinian children's song: Daddy's present is a machine gun and a rifle, sings to victory over Israel and the US

Al-Aqsa TV, Hamas  |

Boy named Raad calls in from Hebron to Hamas TV’s weekly children's program "Tomorrow's Pioneers" and recites a popular song:
Boy: "Daddy gave me a present, a machine gun and a rifle.
When I am a big boy, I will join the Liberation Army.
The army of [Izz A-Din] Al-Qassam (Hamas),
which has taught us how to defend our homeland.
Our homeland is precious, precious.
We [are] victorious, victorious over America and Israel.
[Improvises:] Son of a bitch [lit. "daughter of a dog" – apparently a reference to Israel] – what brought you to this land?"
Child host Saraa interrupts: "Thank you very much, Raad from Hebron, for your participation. Of course, our program is a program for children, not for anything else."
Nassur [adult host in bear costume]: "Yes, but he didn't say anything else, Saraa. He said the truth."
