Pregnant mothers all over the world are busy imagining the future of their unborn child and wishing him/her the best.

The Palestinian Authority is promoting a song lately in which mothers are taught to see their unborn fetus as a future “Martyr for Palestine.” The song has been broadcast on official P.A. radio, Fatah’s Awdah TV, and now official P.A. TV.

“Our martyrs are convoys and our bones are mountains
We don’t surrender to the lowly
We aren’t deterred by imprisonment
Palestine is etched on the heart of the fetus
A proud martyr in his mother’s womb
And the Arab state will remain ours—Arab, Arab Palestine …
We [hold] the rifles to our chests and our eyes are raised to you
Our homes are trenches and our souls are the sacrifice for you
O Jerusalem, you will not remain stolen.”
[Official P.A. TV, June 19 and 26, 2018]

“Martyrs” (Shahids) are those who die for Allah. “Martyrdom” has been presented by the Palestinian Authority as the most honorable status achievable in Islam.
