A graphic and disturbing Hebrew music video advocating for the violent, bloody murder of Jews has gone viral on Palestinian social media, inciting young Arabs to commit genocide for the sake of the al Aqsa Mosque.
The video, translated by the Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI), includes real footage of terror attacks and car rammings, as well as graphic illustrative animations depicting bloody stabbings as the singer croons, “I will attack you, tear you apart, and stab you.”
“I will do what’s never been done before for the sake of the al Aqsa Mosque, so that the Jews will know who I am – a Muslim, an Arab, a Palestinian.”
The upbeat, Middle Eastern-style tune continues, “I will kill you, I swear by my religion.”
The video, clearly made by anti-Israel Arabs, is in perfect Hebrew, aiming at threatening a Jewish audience. In fact, it specifically identifies top targets, such as Shin Bet (Security Agency) agents, soldiers, “settlers”, and policemen, accompanied by unflattering illustrations.
“You will be killed, I guarantee,” the singer promises. “An axe, a gun, or a rifle will kill you.”
The video ends with a genocidal vow to “cleanse my country of every Jew.”
The creator of the video has not come forward, though terror groups Hamas and Islamic Jihad both promoted it on their websites and social media, Channel 2 reported. It was also shared by Palestinian media outlet Ma’an News, though the wire service denied any involvement and removed the video from its YouTube channel.
Though not the first of its kind, the video closely follows on the heels of the latest bout of turmoil on the Temple Mount, the historical location of the Jewish Temples and current home to the al Aqsa Mosque and the Dome of the Rock, two iconic Muslim holy sites.
Following a July 14 terror attack in which two Israeli policemen and three Palestinian terrorists were killed at the Temple Mount, tensions over increased security at the site engendered riots, violence, protests, and, in a horrifying escalation, a brutal terror attack against a Jewish family. The unrest sparked international consternation and condemnation, with world Muslim leaders accusing Israel of using the terror attack to claim sovereignty over the Mount, where an Islamic Waqf is currently in control.
Despite the fact that Israel backed down and gave in to Arab demands, including removing all extra security measures on the Temple Mount, the Arab world has continued to foster unrest by inciting violence on the strength of imagined threats against Muslim sovereignty on the Temple Mount.
