Nasser Abu Hmeid (i.e., terrorist) – the young lion who nursed from the breast of Khansa of Palestine [Um Nasser Abu Hmeid] and became a revolutionary, resistance member, and fighter – stands firm and free despite the prison... Our tall mountain and our handsome revolutionary, our sick prisoner, rise from your bed for the path is long, and for Palestine [we should sacrifice] the most precious of all.
