Only four days after the kidnapping of Eyal Yifrah, Gil-Ad Shayer and Naftali Frenkel, a Palestinian Authority television station broadcast an video produced by the Abu Mazen’s Fatah movement promising Israelis “Death is near.”
According to Palestinian Media Watch, the official Fatah Facebook posted the video, which promotes violence and destruction in the name of Allah, on June 16. The song calls on Palestinian youth to “smash the fortress of the hopeless” and “shout: ‘Allah is Greater'” and states that “the remains of our bodies and our blood are a song of rage.”
PMW says the Fatah military wing, known as the Al-Aqsa Martyrs’ Brigades, describes Israel as “the rival in the land who burns the foreign enemy” and who will “reach the enemy everywhere.” Israelis and/or Jews are addressed directly and promised death:
“Stop and consider, sons of Zion, that death is near…
All you’ll get from us is death
Stop and consider a thousand times
That a revolution sparks with a flame
Fatah is like a rock, whose soldiers love to fight”
In addition, the video features video images of Palestinian fighters holding weapons and fighting Israelis. The video also shows pictures of grieving Israelis, a wounded Israeli soldier and Israeli medics with a stretcher at the scene of a terror attack.
