Song on PA radio: "We strapped ourselves with explosives... and praised [Allah] for the Martyrdom"
Introductory narration of song:
"We have accepted [our] death, so that Jerusalem will return
We are bombs, friends, when the homeland calls
My heart, with fury, exploded and scattered
The shrapnel of this life flew, and the enemies were beheaded
Grieve not, Mother, shed no tears over my torn flesh
Gather [my] bones, Mother, return them to the earth...
Allah Akbar (Allah is Greater)!
If you summon: 'Come to self-sacrifice'
You will meet heroic men who mock death..."
Palestinian singer, Abu Arab:
"We praised the Lord, and set out for Martyrdom
We strapped ourselves with explosives, and trusted in Allah
Carry the load, heroes, show disaster to the settler
Neither day nor night will be sweet for him – until he leaves us
Raise your fire. Raise! Burn the settler with it
For the sake of Jerusalem and our holy place
We strapped ourselves with explosives
We trusted in [Allah] the Merciful and praised Him for the Martyrdom
Onward, onward, men, on the roads to glory
We praised the Lord, and set out for Martyrdom
We strapped ourselves with explosives, and trusted in Allah"
