Hamas song mocks missing Israeli soldier Oron Shaul:

"We've taken a second [Gilad] Shalit,

a young, blond-haired boy

Congratulations on this Ramadan victory.

This is the most beautiful holiday gift."

 

"Netanyahu... we blunted your Protective Edge"

 

PA TV: 

"Joyous and cheerful crowds" in all Palestinian cities

"Great joy indeed... fireworks"

"Cries of joy over this achievement...

of the Palestinian Resistance (i.e., Hamas)"

 

by Itamar Marcus and Nan Jacques Zilberdik

 

 


 

Hamas TV broadcast a song celebrating their claimed kidnapping of missing Israeli soldier Oron Shaul. Shaul has been MIA since his Armored Personnel Carrier was destroyed during combat in Gaza on July 17, 2014. In a mocking video, Hamas calls the "kidnapping" their "Ramadan victory" and "the most beautiful holiday gift." The song also addresses Israeli PM Benjamin Netanyahu: "You retard, you will accept [our] terms and drink from the cup of humiliation." The song opens with a fictitious phone call of someone trying to call the missing soldier:

 

[Phone rings]

(Israeli:) "Hello?"

(Hamas:) "Yes."

(Israeli:) "Am I speaking to Shaul Oron?"

(Hamas:) "What Shaul, my dear? You are talking to the Resistance. The number you dialed is temporarily kidnapped, thank you. Sincerely, the Palestine Defense Forces."

 

SONG BEGINS:

"Hurray! Hurray! The self-sacrificing fighters did it!

We've taken a second [Gilad] Shalit, a young, blond-haired boy

Congratulations on this Ramadan victory. This is the most beautiful holiday gift.

 

Hurray! Hurray! The self-sacrificing fighters did it!

6092065 is poor Shaul's number - the Palestinians broadcast it.

 

Hurray! Hurray! The self-sacrificing fighters did it!

Get out of here [Israelis] wherever you are, your face is changing colors

You lost Shaul Oron in Gaza

 

Hurray! Hurray! The self-sacrificing fighters did it!

Wait your turn, Shaul. There are others in line

We have taken your entire army prisoner. Be patient

 

Hurray! Hurray! The self-sacrificing fighters did it!

Netanyahu, before you go to sleep, go to the toilet

Put a rubber sheet under the blanket and have the potty next to you

 

Hurray! Hurray! The self-sacrificing fighters did it!

Netanyahu, your hair has turned white, and you still keep lying all the time

We've given the answer and confirmed the news

 

Hurray! Hurray! The self-sacrificing fighters did it!

Netanyahu, we weren't afraid, we blunted your Protective Edge

We kidnapped a second soldier - good news for the prisoners of freedom

 

Hurray! Hurray! The self-sacrificing fighters did it!

You think you're an octopus, Netanyahu, you retard

You will accept [our] terms and drink from the cup of humiliation

 

Hurray! Hurray! The self-sacrificing fighters did it!

We're not afraid of threats even if we all become Martyrs

We've kidnapped a new soldier and soon 1,100 [prisoners will be freed]

 

Hurray! Hurray! The self-sacrificing fighters did it!

Zionist, how wrong you are! My nation is free and won't be humiliated

We have a general staff and an army of self-sacrificing fighters

 

Hurray! Hurray! The self-sacrificing fighters did it!

We've blown up tanks, Merkava [tanks] and jeeps

We've flown drones

 

Hurray! Hurray! The self-sacrificing fighters did it!

Netanyahu, damn you, listen to a message that will shock the world:

We have a quarter of a million hand grenades

 

Hurray! Hurray! The self-sacrificing fighters did it!

Occupation army, there's not a single man among you

You became men by confronting children, and bombing the Shuja'iya [neighborhood]

 

Hurray! Hurray! The self-sacrificing fighters did it!

Your way, occupation, is to uproot and kill children

You can't fight, your actions are criminal

Hurray! Hurray!"

Hamas TV called its military wing's announcement of the alleged kidnapping of the soldier "a painful surprise" for "the Zionist occupation" [Al-Aqsa TV (Hamas), July 22, 2014]

 

A PA TV reporter in Gaza said there was "widespread joy, a feeling of satisfaction" among people when they received the news of the Israeli soldier being held by Hamas. A courtyard in a hospital became "a courtyard of celebration":

 

Official PA TV reporter: "There was widespread joy, a feeling of satisfaction... We received the news while we were in the Al-Shifa Hospital, and this rear courtyard [indicates the courtyard] literally became a courtyard of celebration: Cheers, shouts of 'Allah is greater,' cries of joy over this achievement, this achievement of the Palestinian resistance (i.e., Hamas)... We've seen wounded people leaving their rooms [and coming] to this courtyard to celebrate this revenge, as they call it - the revenge of the Palestinian resistance for this massacre (i.e., civilian casualties from Israeli bombing of Hamas' terror infrastructure and tunnel network in the Shuja'iya neighborhood). There was great joy indeed; and there were also [celebratory] shots fired into the sky, as well as fireworks, through which the public expressed its great joy over this achievement.

[Official PA TV, July 21, 2014]

 

Palestinian Media Watch has reported activists from Abbas' Fatah movement handed out candy upon hearing of the "kidnapping."  Fatah has also supported Hamas during the war. Abbas' official PA TV also shows support for Hamas by consistently referring to the Hamas terror organization as "the resistance." For example, when PA TV reported on the Palestinian joy over the alleged kidnapped Israeli soldier:

 

PA TV host: "Yesterday, the resistance (i.e., Hamas) announced the capture of the Israeli soldier Shaul Oron and even showed the soldier's [ID] number to prove the reliability of the resistance. In all the cities, joyous and cheerful crowds took to the streets to welcome the news: There were crowds in Jerusalem, Ramallah, Jenin, Hebron, Tulkarem - meaning, in almost all [the cities]."

[Official PA TV, July 21, 2014]

 

The following are longer excerpts of the items reporting on Palestinian joy over the allegedly kidnapped Israeli soldier Oron Shaul:

 

Al-Aqsa TV host: "Joy and particularly good news for the Palestinian resistance (i.e., Hamas). Now the occupation is forced - despite its attempts to hide and not publicize [it], and despite the fact that the Qassam [Brigades'] announcement was a painful surprise for them, and the Zionist occupation looked for all kinds of excuses, counting the name of the [kidnapped] soldier among those killed, and then removing his name and picture - now it is forced to admit that there is a missing soldier in the hands of the resistance."

[Al-Aqsa TV (Hamas), July 22, 2014]

 

Official PA TV report from Gaza:

Official PA TV host: "Yesterday, the resistance announced that it had captured an Israeli soldier. How did the people on the street in Gaza receive this news, in light of the disaster in Gaza... how has this news affected the mood on the street in Gaza?"

Official PA TV reporter: "Not only the mood on the street in Gaza [has been affected]: The news has affected all Palestinians in all areas, in the West Bank and in the Gaza Strip - meaning: There was widespread joy, a feeling of satisfaction... We received the news while we were in the Al-Shifa Hospital, and this rear courtyard [indicates the courtyard] literally became a courtyard of celebration: Cheers, shouts of 'Allah is greater,' cries of joy over this achievement, this achievement of the Palestinian resistance (i.e., Hamas) - especially because most of the people here in the Al-Shifa Hospital are from among those who suffered from the Shuja'iya massacre (i.e., civilian casualties from Israeli bombing of Hamas' terror infrastructure and tunnel network)... We've seen wounded people leaving their rooms [and coming] to this courtyard to celebrate this revenge, as they call it - the revenge of the Palestinian resistance for this massacre. There was great joy indeed; and there were also [celebratory] shots fired into the sky, as well as fireworks, through which the public expressed its great joy over this achievement, and they hope there will be an additional achievement (i.e., kidnapping), so that [pauses] - a small contribution on the part of the resistance, to restore some of the rights of the citizens who suffered so much in Shuja'iya."
