This video, entitled "The Roof of the Bus Goes Flying," was released for the anniversary of the death of master bombmaker Yahya Ayyash.
|The bomber approaches the "Jews" waiting for the bus|
At least 40 people were involved in the production of this video.
It is a reflection of how truly sick Palestinian Arab society is that such a video can be produced to begin with, let alone praised and popularized.
Oh bearer of good tidings, wrap the explosive belt around your waist. Oh bearer of good tidings, wrap the explosive belt around your waist. The story of the Intifada will only be told when the roof of a bus goes flying.
Oh Martyrdom-seeker, heed the call of the Al-Aqsa Mosque, make the blast of the bomb reach further and further. Make Netanyahu flee in shame, unable to count the number of casualties. Scatter them all over, strike fear among their people. Show no mercy to their settlers. Dispatch them to Hell. Nothing awaits them but the grave.
Oh martyrdom-seeker, the Al-Aqsa Mosque has called: Oh son, come to martyrdom! Blow yourself up, oh you with strong resolve. We will defend the soil of the pure Al-Aqsa.
Oh martyrdom-seeker, it is our duty to defend our people. You are the voice of honor within us.
With your explosive belt, we will defend our free women. We want the dead to fill the streets, and the blood to intensify the pain. Make the Zionist withdraw from the wrath of my avenging people.
Disclose your secrets to the Compassionate. Oh martyrdom-seeker, the Lord has chosen you. Our Prophet Muhammad will be your neighbor. In Paradise, your home has already been built. Step up and take revenge on behalf of your religion. Blow it up – may you be successful. Oh you who wears the explosive belt, your head is held high, when we bring the good tidings.
Oh Martyrdom-seeker, put on your explosive belt, and blow it up. This is your finest hour. How sweet are your bombs and explosives. Blow up the shameless Zionist.
Of course, one cannot find any Arabic language disavowals or criticisms of this video coming out of Palestinian media or social media. I would love to find a single Palestinian in the territories who is unabashedly anti-terror and against such incitement arguing with the masses of Arabs who praise it - but so far I have not found that single person. I have not even seen a single example of anonymous criticism.
The only conclusion is that the apologists are wrong - there is broad support for the most heinous terror attacks across all levels of Palestinian society. The disavowals of terror are said in English to the gullible idiots of J-Street and the White House. The polls that show reluctance to use terror show not that the people are against terror for moral reasons, but that they don't believe that blowing up Jews is tactically wise at this time.
Yahya Ayyash is a hero in Palestinian society. Period. Not a terrorist, not a flawed hero, not a product of his times - but a role model.
Make no mistake - the vast majority of Palestinians support the depraved message of videos like this, both explicitly and implicitly, by refusing to say a single negative word about them. And that is a message that Western media and politicians simply refuse to acknowledge.
We have lots of ideas, but we need more resources to be even more effective. Please donate today to help get the message out and to help defend Israel.
