During her opening monologue on a November 23, 2018 morning show on Palestine TV (Palestinian Authority), TV host Dana Abu Shamsiya said about Abd Al-Rahman Abu Jamal, a Palestinian from Jerusalem who stabbed four Israeli policemen: "I am a Palestinian lion cub, planted in my land… The blood of the martyrs throws through my veins… I harvest souls on the battlefield. I am a guardian of Al-Aqsa and the [Dome of] the Rock… I am feared by the armies of betrayal. I am desired by the black-eyed virgins [of Paradise]… Liberation shall come at the hands of the lion cubs." Abu Shamsiya is also the editor of the show.

 

Dana Abu Shamsiya: We say about the Palestinian martyr from Jerusalem Abd Al-Rahman Abu Jamal [who stabbed four Israeli policemen: "I am a Palestinian lion cub, planted in my land like the olive and fig trees. I have solid roots that go back to the Canaanites. The blood of the martyrs flows through my veins. I am like a lion in the battlefield. When the drums of war are beaten, I harvest souls in the battlefield. I am the guard of the Al-Aqsa [Mosque] and of the [Dome of] the Rock. I never close my eyes or bow my head. I am a Palestinian lion cub and I am feared by the armies of betrayal. I am desired by the black-eyed virgins [of Paradise]. I have not sold out my country, nor have I surrendered my machine gun. Today, I carry my shrouds as the faith grows stronger in my heart that victory and liberation shall come at the hands of the lion cubs."
