Fatah youth movement song: "Hold your weapon and load it… Pour the fire of rage on the enemy... Hand me the weapon... Our enemy will pay with his blood"

Awdah TV, Fatah-run  |

This song promoting violence against Israelis started to appear on social media with the beginning of the Palestinian wave of attacks against Israelis which began in September/October 2015, lasted 6 months and killed over 30 Israelis

Lyrics: "Go out against the treacherous enemy
Even if you hold [only] a rock in your hand
O you, who will never forget a blood revenge
O vigorous person, get up and strap on the belt of fire
And sound for us the voice of the attack
Go out against the enemy, go out, resist, hit, go out
Through rocks [the child Martyr] Faris [Ouda] stood against the arsenal and defeated a tank...
Challenge the enemy
He who humiliates us will not live...
Hold your weapon and load it, leave the revolution burning...
O Fatah fire, burn, constantly and victoriously
Pour the fire of rage on the enemy...
Hand me the weapon and the equipment
Place thousands of cartridges on me
Our enemy will pay with his blood...
I marched determinedly through desert and forests
Holding a submachine gun in my hands which arises out of the rock"
Production – “Fatah Shabiba movement in Palestine”

Faris Ouda - 14-year-old Palestinian who was presented by Yasser Arafat as a role model for Palestinian children because he sought and achieved death as a Martyr in confrontations with Israel. According to the official PA daily, on Nov. 8, 2000, the day he was killed, before heading towards the areas where Palestinian and Israelis were involved in fighting, Ouda left a wreath around his picture in his room with the words: "The brave Martyr Faris Ouda." The PA daily wrote that Ouda had said to his mother, "Don't worry, mother, Martyrdom is sweet." [PA TV, Aug. 4, 2003]
