Abbas’ Fatah urges its followers on Facebook to “reshare” a video of a small Jordanian boy, Amir, who is off to Jerusalem to avenge Palestinian terrorist murderer Omar Abu Laila who was killed by Israeli soldiers when he resisted arrest after having murdered 2 Israelis in 2019.
The child soldier, Amir, who is wearing a military uniform, carrying a slingshot in one hand and holding a toy rifle, explains to his mother that he wants to “shoot the Jews who shot Omar” – the Palestinian terrorist murderer – and if necessary to “die for Jerusalem and the Al-Aqsa Mosque” because they “deserve” that “we die for [them].”
Stressing its support for the indoctrination of children exemplified in this video, which urges children to act as soldiers and to die as “Martyrs” for Allah, Fatah pinned the video to its official Facebook page to make sure it stays at the top of the page:
Fatah’s posted text: “Reshare the video.
A video of a Palestinian (sic., Jordanian) child gets 11 million views, and the YouTube management removed it.”
PMW points out that in the video the child is speaking his lines from memory whilst the mother appears to be reading a script.
The following is a transcript of the entire video, which also includes statements by murderer Omar Abu Laila’s mother and an unidentified man. In addition, the original version on Gaza TV Media also included this opening:
Speaker followed by audience repeating his words: “Here we are at your command, O Al-Aqsa Mosque… we are answering your call, Martyr, we are answering your call, Palestine.”
Mother: “Amir darling, where are you going?”
Jordanian boy Amir Al- Khasawneh: “On a long path, I might not come back.”
Mother: “My dear, your father will look for you!”
Amir: “Give my farewell to my father; tell him: “Forgive Amir and pray for Amir.”
Mother: “You’ve scared me, where does this path lead?”
Amir: “To Jerusalem.”
Mother: “It is far, my dear Amir.”
Amir: “No, mother; here it is behind the mountain. You go, go.”
Mother: “Who are you going to?”
Amir: “To Martyr Omar Abu Laila (i.e., terrorist, murdered 2) and his comrades. I will shoot the Jews who shot Omar. I will go to Omar’s mother, I will kiss her head. I will tell her: “I am Omar. We are all Omar. We are your children.”
Mother: “The Jews will shoot you, my dear Amir, and you will die.”
Amir: “What’s new, mother? I will die for Jerusalem. It is Jerusalem – doesn’t it deserve that we die for it? It is the Al-Aqsa Mosque – doesn’t it deserve that we die for it? It is the place of Prophet [Muhammad’s] Night Journey – doesn’t it deserve that we die for it?”
Mother on murderer Omar Abu Laila: “May Allah be pleased by him and illuminate his path. Allah willing, I will see him in Paradise, may Allah be pleased by him” …
A man: ” One Palestinian boy is still alive and defending Al-Aqsa. The Palestinians are the guardians of the honor and they are the Arab honor.”
Amir: “This is Jerusalem, O Arabs! For Allah, O Arabs! For Allah, O Arabs! This is Jerusalem, the place of Prophet [Muhammad’s] Night Journey! They have sold Jerusalem! Awaken, O Saladin! They have sold Jerusalem! For Allah!”
The video was placed on YouTube on 7 April 2019 and deleted later. Fatah shared it on their Facebook page on 17 February 2020.
