A song dedicated to Palestinian terrorist Khairy Alqam, who murdered seven people near a Jerusalem synagogue and wounded two others, titled "Sacred Retaliation" was posted on Alaa Qadouha's YouTube account on January 29, 2023. The lyrics laud Alqam, stating: "Blessed be your hand." The lyrics further state: "Make them tremble in fear [...] fighting is our hobby [...] the beginning is in Jerusalem." The lead singer is Ramze Alokk (also spelled Ramzi Al-Ak), who was sentenced by Israeli authorities to 30 years in prison for his involvement in attempted bombings and in sniper attacks in the Jerusalem neighborhood of Gilo, but was released in the 2011 Shalit Deal and banished to Gaza.

Singers: "The first retaliation was like an earthquake. Retaliate! Retaliate! Retaliate! Retaliate! It brought you down to your knees, you occupiers. Make them tremble in fear! Tremble! Tremble! Tremble! Tremble! When we join the fray, you see 'breaking news.' Retaliate! Retaliate! Retaliate! Retaliate!

"The first retaliation was like an earthquake. Retaliate! Retaliate! Retaliate! Retaliate! It brought you down to your knees, you occupiers. Make them tremble in fear! Tremble! Tremble! Tremble! Tremble! When we join the fray, you see 'breaking news.'

"War is our game, and the battlefield is ours. We deliver blows, so don't play games with the heroes! War is our game and the battlefield is ours. We deliver blows, so don't play games with the heroes!

[...]

"Fighting is our hobby. The beginning is Jerusalem. Don't play games with the greats.

[...]

"Blessed be your hand, oh Khairy Alqam. Our people salute you to the highest degree. Oh son of Shuafat, let them taste bitterness! You are a sniper, and nobody survives your shooting.

[...]

"The first retaliation was like an earthquake. Retaliate! Retaliate! Retaliate! Retaliate! It brought you down to your knees, you occupiers. Make them tremble in fear! Tremble! Tremble! Tremble! Tremble! When we join the fray, you see 'breaking news.' Retaliate! Retaliate! Retaliate! Retaliate!
