In a recent Hamas TV children's show, a young boy recites a song titled "I Do Not Fear the Gun," in which he says: "Oh sons of Zion, oh the most evil of creatures, oh barbaric apes, Jerusalem rejects you and vomits your filth."
Following are excerpts from the show, which aired on Al-Aqsa TV on December 5:
Child interviewer: Let's turn to Abd Al-Rahim Abu Ubeida. Please give us your message to the enemy, by reciting the poem: "I Do Not Fear the Gun."
Abd Al-Rahim Al-Zarad: I do not fear the gun. I do not fear the gun.
You are all nothing but herds of deluded idiots.
Jerusalem is my land, Jerusalem is my honor, Jerusalem is my life and my dew-covered dreams.
Oh you slayers of Allah's pious prophets, you who have been raised on the shedding of blood – humiliation and suffering have been decreed upon you.
Oh sons of Zion, oh the most evil of creatures, oh barbaric apes, Jerusalem rejects you and vomits your filth.
Oh impure ones, Jerusalem is like a pious virgin.
Oh filthy ones, Jerusalem is pure and clean.
I do not dread barbarism, as long as I have my holy book and my city in my heart, as long as my arms [can throw] stones, and as long as I am free and do not sell out the cause.
I will not dread your masses and will never fear the gun. I will never fear the gun.
