PA incites terror: “This great people fights with daggers, knives and cannon shells”

Nan Jacques Zilberdik and Itamar Marcus  |

  • PA: “Allah is stronger and greater than the Children of Zion”

  • PA: By Allah, I will redeem Jerusalem with my children

The PA is actively inciting the Palestinian street to violence and terror against Israel in numerous ways. One method is by broadcasting a constant stream of music videos and fillers that demonize Israel, encourage violence, and justify terror. Israel and the Jews are said to be threatening Islam, its holy sites, and Palestinian and Muslim “honor.”

“This great people fights with daggers, knives and cannon shells”
One song broadcast on the PA-controlled PA TV Live describes the Palestinians as “the great people” that “fights with daggers and rocks, with knives and cannon shells” against “Allah’s enemy”:

Lyrics: “Your face is Arab and will not change, and your eyes are Palestinian.
The revolution will never change its fighting identity.
You are the source of water, you are the torch
– an olive branch and a rifle…
This is the great people, it fights with daggers and rocks,
With knives and cannon shells,
with a poem and a song.
The more Allah’s enemy acts tyrannically,
O Jerusalem, you will remain Arab”

As Palestinian Media Watch reported yesterday, the PA has broadcast similar songs calling for the murder of Jews in suicide bombings and stabbings to “restore honor.”

“Allah is stronger and greater than the Children of Zion”
Another song also describes the conflict as Allah's battle against the Jews – “the -Children of Zion.” This song, “Where are the millions,” is famous for being used to motivate Palestinians to take to the streets and wage “intifada,” i.e., engage in violence and terror against Israelis:

“Where are the millions?
Where is the Arab people?
Where is the Arab rage?
Where is the Arab blood?
Where is the Arab honor?
Where are the millions? Where?
Allah is with us. He is stronger and greater than the Children of Zion
Even if they hang, kill and bury [me],
my land will not be humiliated
My red blood waters the greenery
with lemon flavor
The fire of revolution is getting stronger
and flaring up. We are the victors...
My chest is a machine gun’s magazine,

where are you, my brothers? Where?”

This version of the song was performed by Lebanese singer Julia Boutros at a concert in Dbayeh in Lebanon in 2016. PMW recently documented that this same song calling for terror was played at a Fatah rally protesting US President Trump’s Middle East peace deal.

That Palestinians are in an eternal battle for Allah against evil Israel has been taught at length by PA top religious official, Mahmoud Al-Habbash, who explained PA TV viewers that “this a conflict between two entities, good and evil, between two projects: Allah's project vs. Satan's project.”

“By Allah, I will redeem Jerusalem with my children”
In another of its broadcasts, the PA is instructing Palestinians to even sacrifice their children and “redeem” Jerusalem with them:

Lyrics: “The people declares and calls:
Jerusalem is my country's capital!
By Allah, I will redeem [it] with my children, and Al-Aqsa is the place.
Allahu Akbar! Allahu Akbar!”

This song, “Slap of the Century,” was produced by official PA TV Live in protest against US President Trump’s Middle East peace plan “the Deal of the Century,” which among other things would leave Jerusalem under Israeli sovereignty. The PA transmitted the same message in a similar song exposed recently by PMW in which Palestinians were urged to die for Al-Aqsa, and “redeem its soil with their blood.”

This message isn’t new to Palestinians, but lately the intensity and frequency have risen dramatically. Palestinians have been told for decades to aspire to die as “Martyrs” for “Palestine” and Allah, and the PA habitually reminds them that nothing is too precious a sacrifice, not even children. A similar video broadcast recently by official PA TV taught Palestinians that “Al-Aqsa is more precious than my children and more precious than my family – Al-Aqsa is my life.”

The videos above join the many other hate and violence promoting music videos being broadcast daily on official PA TV stations at the moment. The PA’s efforts to create an atmosphere of war and terror comes in anticipation of Israel's presumed future annexation - i.e., application of Israeli law - to the Jordan Valley and Jewish cities and towns in Judea – Samaria/ West Bank.
