PA TV plays song honoring “heroic” murderer of 7

Visual:

Lyrics: “Fatah, arise and take pride in yourself 
Victorious one, arise, take pride in yourself, and fill your lighters 
Heroic Nasser Abu Hmeid (i.e., terrorist, responsible for the murder of 7 people) 
Heroic Nasser Abu Hmeid 
Here are the people of Al-Amari [refugee] camp…
Our bullets glitter and shine,
O Nasser, O son of Hmeid, 
Nasser the enduring one, gird yourself with endurance, our leader,
Our lighter is full, thus it remains, and so too our weapons are loaded…
O Nasser… bear your wound and your prison with endurance,
The homeland is ours.”

Captions on signs:
“We are with you and will never forget you. Save Nasser Abu Hmeid” “Freedom and a speedy recovery for prisoner commander Nasser Abu Hmeid”
