Hamas’ væpnede fløy, Qassam-brigadene, har lagt ut en musikkvideo som har blitt en «hit» i Israel; det de ikke klarer med raketter tar de igjen i selvtilfredse vrangforestillinger og utilsiktet humor.

Sangen har den fengende tittelen: «Utslett alle zionister, utrydd kakkerlakk-bolet.» Teksten er myntet på arabere, men siden den er på hebraisk er det mye innsats på vegne av et ikke-eksisterende publikum. Eller kanskje Hamas hadde en anelse om at sangen ville bli populær i Israel allikevel?

Hamas hadde nok ønsket å få en litt annen «superhit» på discotekene i Tel Aviv. Uansett, her er den engelske oversettelsen, men gå for all del ikke glipp av den musikalske nytelsen:

 
 
Attack! Carry out bombings! Shock them!
Annihilate all the Zionists! Rock Israel’s security!
Strive to engage the Zionists in combat.
Burn their camps and their soldiers.
Rock Israel’s security, and expose it to flames and volcanos.

It is a feeble state, built on illusions. They cannot endure war. They turn out to be like cobwebs, when they encounter knights.

Rock Israel’s security! Light furnaces in its heart. Raze it to the ground, exterminate the cockroaches’ nest, and banish all the Zionists.

The Zionists’ hearts turn in different ways. They are terrified of dying, so they hide behind walls.

Their illusion of an army is incompetent. It is a thing of the past. Their soldiers are like mice in a dry field, draw them near and open fire.
