Mahmoud Abbas’s 'Run Them Over' Intifada

“Run [them] over, destroy,

annihilate, blow them up;‎

Don’t let the Zionist live long

O Al-Aqsa, we’re your defenders

O son of Jerusalem, cry ‘Allah is great!’”

‎“Wait for them at the intersection

Let the settler drown in red blood

Terrorize them”‎

Those quotes are from Palestinian Media Watch’s translation of a song that is now a big hit among Palestinians. PMW notes that:

One video version of the song “Run over [the settler]!” ‎by singers Muhammad Abu Al-Kayed and Anas Jaradat has more than ‎‎385,000 viewings on the “Quds News Network” Facebook page. On one of the singers’ ‎YouTube channel the song has more than 71,000 viewings.‎

What has evoked this enthusiasm is a spate of murderous Palestinian attacks on Israelis over the past few weeks. The fatalities have been a three-month-old Israeli girl and a 22-year-old Ecuadorian woman, both killed in a car-ramming attack in Jerusalem; a 38-year-old Israeli Druze border patrol captain killed in another car-ramming attack in Jerusalem; a 20-year-old off-duty Israeli soldier stabbed to death in Tel Aviv on Monday; and a 26-year-old Israeli woman stabbed to death beside a Judea community that same day.
