On February 8, 2020, Lebanese singer Ali Al-Attar uploaded a performance of a song titled "We Will Pray in Jerusalem" to YouTube and Facebook. The song was performed at the Hujeir Festival in August 2019 and Al-Attar was accompanied by the Lebanese National Orchestra. Al-Attar sang: "There will be no trace of Zionism left on the land [...] We will understand the meaning of being a martyr [...] The final war will soon be waged upon the land, and Zionism will suffer the most horrible holocaust [...] Oh Israel, the Temple will be destroyed when we meet, and the Star [of David] will be burned to the ground [...] The sheikhs of blind normalization will be sentenced to stoning."

Ali Al-Attar: "We will restore justice to Jerusalem and remove the wound. Our nation's time is coming - it is just around the corner.

[...]

"There will be no trace of Zionism left on the land and the nations of the world will praise Al-Aqsa. You shall see. We will pray in Jerusalem and we will fulfill the wish of Al-Aqsa as soon as possible. We will pray in Jerusalem and we will liberate its sublime pulpit from the shackles of silence.

[...]

"There, we will understand the meaning of being a martyr. There, freedom will meet the prisoners. There, a father and his sons shall get together and the mother will be the lady of all the happy people. We will pray in Jerusalem. We are the hidden secret, we are the people of courage. Oh Zionism, we have become your angel of death, we will play in Jerusalem. The axe is in our hands and with it, oh Al-Aqsa, we shall sever Israel's history.

[...]

"The final war will soon be waged upon the land and Zionism will suffer the most horrible holocaust. The final war will soon be waged upon the land and Zionism will suffer the most horrible holocaust. Oh Israel, the Temple will be destroyed when we meet and the Star [of David] will be burned to the ground, for it is [the symbol of] misery.

[...]

"We will pray in Jerusalem. America's Embassy in Jerusalem is nothing but an illusion. We will pray in Jerusalem, and the sheikhs of blind normalization will be sentenced to stoning.

[...]

"Israel has fallen, Allah brought it down. The oppressed Al-Aqsa [Mosque] does not cry anymore. We long to meet Al-Aqsa and to bow down in prayer over its soil. We will pray in Jerusalem. The order 'be and it becomes' is clear as daylight, and the peoples of the world are coming to liberate [Jerusalem]. We will pray in Jerusalem. We will never have a doubt. The sound of 'Allah Akbar!' will crush Zionism."
