Hamas song: "Fire your rockets... blow up Tel Aviv"
Hamas TV song:
"Fire your rockets, make them explode...
victory is from Allah...
O Martyrdom-seeker, O blaze, hurry,
blow up Tel-Aviv"
by Itamar Marcus and Nan Jacques Zilberdik
In a song on Al-Aqsa TV, Hamas promises to launch more rockets at Israel and encourages Palestinians to seek Martyrdom death for Allah through suicide bombings in cafés and buses.
The song calls to "destroy" and "blow up Tel-Aviv" and to "return" the Israeli coastal city of Ashkelon to Palestinians, while the video shows rockets being fired.
Addressing Hamas' military wing, the Izz A-Din Al-Qassam Brigades, the song affirms that "victory is from Allah" and that "in Paradise there is a Garden [for Martyrs] calling to you." The video shows a café and a bus destroyed by a suicide bomber, along with the words, "Martyrdom-seeker (i.e., suicide bomber), O blaze, hurry, blow up Tel Aviv."
The following is the text of the song entitled "O [Izz A-Din] Al-Qassam [Brigades], Fire Your Rockets":
"O [Hamas'] Al-Qassam [Brigades],
Fire without asking on (southern Israel's) Eshkol
To return (the Israeli city) Ashkelon
Let the thieving [Israeli] army lament and go down to the shelters
Let them go down to the shelters
O Al-Qassam, fire your rockets
Make them explode and write your history
O Al-Qassam, victory is from Allah
In Paradise there is a Garden [for Martyrs] calling to you
Fajar 5 [rocket], O blaze, hurry, destroy Tel Aviv
O Martyrdom-seeker (i.e., suicide bomber), O blaze, hurry, blow up Tel Aviv
(Image: a café and a bus destroyed by a suicide bomber)
The free [Hamas'] Al-Qassam say: 'Allah willing, we will hit and will not fail'"
