Music video celebrates suicide bombings and Hamas bomb maker Ayyash: “Strap on an explosive belt... O Martyrdom seeker, respond to Al-Aqsa’s call... send them to Hell... Let fire burn them, turn them into body parts, roast them”
Video shows a band preforming in front of a smoking, blown up bus, and shows a reenactment of events leading up to the bus exploding: Terrorists plan the attack, the suicide bomber who carries out the attack prays, waits for the bus and then boards the bus together with other passengers, some of whom are Orthodox Jews. The bomber is seen clutching his stomach before the sound of an explosion is heard.

Blow yourself up, call for [the end of] your days
How wonderful is your bomb which blows up the immoral Zionist...
O bearer of good news, strap on an explosive belt
Nothing will be told about the Intifada except for the roof of the bus that flew off."
