Song used to praise Arab murderers from the 1929 Arab Riots, repurposed to glorify Fatah terrorists

Video posted on the Facebook page of the Fatah Commission of Information and Culture

 

The video shows three men aiming assault rifles as the song “From Acre Prison” is played in the background. The song, written for Arab murderers Muhammad Jamjoum, Fuad Hijazi, and Ataa Al-Zir from the 1929 Arab Riots, is evidently dedicated to the three Fatah terrorists Adham Mabrouka Al-Shishani, Muhammad Al-Dakhil, and Ashraf Mubaslat, who were planning an imminent shooting attack when they were killed by Israel earlier on Feb. 8, 2022 – see note below.

 

Lyrics: “There were three men who competed among themselves over death. Their feet rose above the neck of the hangman, and they became role models.”

 

 

 

Muhammad Jamjoum, Fuad Hijazi, and Ataa Al-Zir “committed particularly brutal murders [of Jews] at Safed and Hebron,” according to the report by British Government to the League of Nations. They were convicted of attacking British soldiers and murdering Jews in the 1929 Hebron Massacre, in which 65 Jews were murdered. They were executed by the British in 1930.

Adham Mabrouka Al-Shishani, Muhammad Al-Dakhil, and Ashraf Mubaslat – Palestinian terrorists and members of the Al-Aqsa Martyrs’ Brigades (Fatah’s military wing) who were shot and killed by Israeli security forces in Nablus on Feb. 8, 2022. When killed the terrorists were armed with two M-16 semi-automatic assault rifles and intelligence indicated that they were planning an imminent terror attack. The terrorists had already committed six shooting attacks against Israeli civilians and soldiers in previous weeks, among them: Jan. 25, 2022 - shooting on an Israeli military post near Nablus. Jan. 27, 2022 - shooting on a military post between the Israeli towns of Elon Moreh and Itamar east of Nablus. Jan. 29, 2022 - shooting on an Israeli military vehicle as it drove next to the PA village of Tell southwest of Nablus. Feb. 2, 2022 - shooting on a military post at an entrance to Nablus. PMW was unable to determine the details of the remaining two attacks, which reportedly targeted Israeli towns.
