"Let them taste instant death" - Terrorist's poem on Facebook prior to his car ramming attack

Nan Jacques Zilberdik  |

Palestinian terrorist Sanad Al-Turman decided earlier this month to carry out a terror attack and rammed his car into a group of Israeli soldiers, wounding 12 of them.

It is possible to say that “the writing was on the wall” - literally on Fatah’s Facebook wall. Before the attack, Al-Turman uploaded a video of himself reciting a poem inciting murder of Israelis, including the phrases “tear the gangs of invaders into pieces” and “let them taste instant death.” Abbas’ Fatah, which Palestinian Media Watch has shown regularly promotes terror and glorifies terrorists, also uploaded Al-Turman’s murder incitement on both their Facebook and Twitter accounts. 

Terrorist Sanad Al-Turman: “Stand proud and tall like the minarets.
Send your bullets like the 'stones of hard clay' [Quran, Sura 105:4].
Tear the gangs of invaders into pieces, and let them taste instant death, by [angel] Gabriel.
Burn the tyrants’ corpses and their filth, and pour gasoline on their organs.
Let them burn all the palm trees in our courtyards – we will rise like palm trees above the palm trees.
If they destroy all of the minarets above us – we [will be] like the minarets, then you will hear the call: Praise Allah.”

This is another example of Facebook's double standards. Since it is Facebook’s policy to allow Fatah’s terror promotion on Facebook as PMW has documented, the terrorist’s video promoting violence is still up and viewable on Fatah’s Facebook page. So is another video he made with this poem:

Terrorist Sanad Al-Turman: “Do you think that you – when you burned me, danced like a devil on my body, and let the winds scatter me before the gaze of the sun in desolateness. 
Do you think that with this you erased my right, my history, and my faith? You will try in vain. It is impossible to eradicate a revolutionary – today I am the resurrection of the dead – one day I will come!”

PMW has shown that Fatah and Facebook previously have promoted this poem as part of a video honoring a suicide bomber who murdered one and wounded over 100. 

Sanad Al-Turman – Palestinian terrorist who ran over and wounded 12 Israeli soldiers with his car outside of the First Station in Jerusalem on Feb. 6, 2020. Al-Turman fled the scene but Israeli security forces arrested him later the same day. Al-Turman is awaiting trial as of Feb. 9, 2020.
