War Song on Palestinian Websites: "Strike a Blow at Tel Aviv"

On November 17, 2912, a music video was posted on various Palestinian websites threatening Israel and promising to attack Tel Aviv. The music, sung by Shadi Al-Bourini and Qassem Al-Najjar, was accompanied by still images of rockets being fired, a plane being shot out of the sky, and Israelis injured and bracing for imminent landing of rockets, among others. Following are excerpts:


Strike a blow at Tel Aviv.


Strike a blow at Tel Aviv.


Strike a blow at Tel Aviv and frighten the Zionists.


The more you build it the more we will destroy it.


Strike a blow at Tel Aviv.


Strike a blow at Tel Aviv.


You need to know, oh occupier, that the Palestinians won’t be humiliated.


We don't want no truce or solution.


All we want is to strike Tel Aviv.


We will strike a blow at Tel Aviv.


Oh oppressive Israeli army, you can take on anything but Gaza.


Here comes the decisive response:


Strike a blow at Tel Aviv.


Strike a blow at Tel Aviv.


You sent a bomber to shell us neighborhood by neighborhood.


But we downed the airplane.


Strike a blow at Tel Aviv.


Strike a blow at Tel Aviv.


Here is the breaking news:


We shot down the airplane, and the pilot is missing.


Strike a blow at Tel Aviv.


Strike a blow at Tel Aviv.


We have downed their airplane, and filled up their air raid shelters.


Oh Palestinians, you can be proud.


Strike a blow at Tel Aviv.


Strike a blow at Tel Aviv.


Oh you settler, with your sidelocks, in your shelter you cower with fear.


My entire people cry out loud:


Strike a blow at Tel Aviv.


After the raid, after the strike – Netanyahu, you son-of-a-$@#$%,


How come you are hiding in the shelter?


Strike a blow at Tel Aviv.


Strike a blow at Tel Aviv.


Netanyahu, son-of-a-whatever, we will wipe out your entire army.


You can stick your operation up your ass.


Strike a blow at Tel Aviv.


Strike a blow at Tel Aviv.


Oh Gulf states, shut up. All you are good at is convening conferences.


Those lowlifes are not the same blood as me.


We want to strike a blow at Tel Aviv.


We want to strike a blow at Tel Aviv.


The Gulf states and all their billions are tough only with NATO's support.


Their statements are of no use to us.


We want to strike a blow at Tel Aviv.


We want to strike a blow at Tel Aviv.


We don't want no truce or bargain.


We have sworn in Gaza only to wage resistance.


Strike a blow at Tel Aviv.


Strike a blow at Tel Aviv.


Strike, oh Qassam missile, do not let the Zionists sleep.


Even if they beg for mercy – be sure not to show Tel Aviv any mercy.


Don't show Tel Aviv any mercy.


Oh Fajr missile, explode in the Knesset and the army base.


Allah Akbar, Allah Akbar – terrorize Tel Aviv.


Blow up, blow up Tel Aviv.


Upon hearing the air-raid sirens, Akko and the valleys sing out:


Oh Arafat, your people are striking a blow at Tel Aviv.


Let's strike a blow at Tel Aviv.
