In response to Hamas’ ongoing rocket fire against Israel, Israel launched Operation Pillar of Defense on Nov. 14, 2012, aimed at crippling the terrorist infrastructure in Gaza. On Nov. 21, Israel and Hamas agreed to a ceasefire. This video was one of many broadcast by Hamas during the conflict, as part of their campaign to scare Israeli soldiers and civilians. Here are the lyrics.
Music video by Hamas’ Al-Qassam Brigades:
“Bless Al-Qassam men, guardians of Palestine
Oh pride of Salah Shahada, oh wisdom of Immad (Hamas leaders killed by Israel)
the explosives of Ayyash, (Hamas bomb maker killed by Israel), Martyrdom,
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 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.'”
