JERUSALEM, ISRAEL (Worthy News)– Although a tense ceasefire is in effect, the friction is far from over. On Al-Aqsa TV, Hamas' official media outlet, continued its call to kill Jews and such acts were a form of worshiping Allah according to Palestinian Media Watch.
“Killing Jews is worship that draws us close to Allah,” one of the music videos played during the recent conflict is translated as saying. The same song, by Hamas‘ Al-Qassam Brigades, going on to praise “the martyr’s blood” and the act of “terrifying the Jews.” Here are more of the lyrics:
“Bless [Hamas'] Al-Qassam men, guardians of Palestine
Oh pride of Salah Shahada, oh wisdom of Immad [Aqel] (Hamas leaders killed by Israel)
[Oh] the explosives of [Yahya] Ayyash, (Hamas bomb maker killed by Israel), Martyrdom,
[oh] lovers of the trigger:
Killing the occupiers is worship that Allah made into law.
(Arabic text: “Killing Jews is worship that draws us close to Allah”)
Arise, oh determined men.
The color of [the Martyr's] blood protects the land.
Oh masked one wearing a keffiyeh (Arab head scarf), terrifying the Jews…call out in Zionism’s face: ‘Muhammad’s army has begun to return.’”
In a separate clip, another song on Al-Aqsa TV, again, touted the killing of Jews. In addition to violent lyrics, the video also featured Hebrew words on the screen and images of Israelis being attacked.
“Brigades — we kidnap soldiers, Brigades — we kill Jews,” the song proclaims. ”Your body parts are scattered everywhere. The cemeteries await you.”
Last week, the day after Israel and Hamas agreed to a ceasefire, Al-Aqsa TV aired a music video calling for the destruction of Israel.
“Destroy the throne of Zion, the house of absolute evil
Raise the banner of victory
Be like the fire of a volcano
Repeat in the name of your Jihad: Death to Israel!
With blood and fire, resist until freedom
Defeat the soldiers of aggression the enemies of humanity.”
