"Allah created me and formed me He made me prouder and made me a Palestinian He made defiance flow like blood in my veins And I made the revolution burst forth like clay stones I raised the flags of certain victory: Allah's book [the Quran] and the tradition of the most esteemed among prophets [Muhammad]. I called in the voice of hidden justice I lit a fire like volcanoes under their feet I refused to be submissive and degraded I rejected [everything] but dying with the honor that will give me life From a nation that has forgotten the Muslims' heroism - Omar ibn al-Khattab and Saladin - [Muslim fighters who conquered Jerusalem] from between the whistles of the bullets I sing: 'Long live the nation of Fatah and Yasser Arafat' Allah's enemies, the sons of pigs (i.e., Jews, in Islamic tradition) Destroyed and uprooted the olive and fig trees They murdered children with guns, like snakes They cut off their limbs with stones and knives They raped the women in the city squares They defiled Allah's book [the Quran] in front of millions Where is the nation of Islam? Where are the nation of Islam and the Jihad fighters? Where is the fear of Allah in Jerusalem, which has been defiled by the Zionists?" PA TV host: "Bravo, applause, applause, applause to Hadeel." [Palestinian TV (Fatah), Mar. 22, 2013]
