Hamas has released a new video depicting the "liberation" of Israel by jihadists. Ynetnews reports that the film, created by a pair of Hamas operatives in the West Bank and Gaza, vividly depicts the burning down of the High Court of Justice and the Bank of Israel building in Jerusalem. Cars with Palestinian flags are shown driving across Ayalon Highway, a major road in the Tel Aviv area, celebrating Israel's demise.
"Inshallah, the Jihad will take back the homeland," a Palestinian refugee says at the start of the video. A subsequent image depicts Palestinian students telling their teacher they want to join the resistance. A small boy is depicted growing into adulthood and describing the liberation operation. Victorious Palestinians are shown walking along the Tel Aviv promenade and city streets.
Later, the opening credits to Channel 2's evening newscast appear, but Israeli anchorwoman Yonit Levy is gone. In her place is a Palestinian anchorman declaring the "liberation of Tel Aviv and Palestine."
Eieman Hijazi, one of the creators of the film, said he and his partner, Muhammad al-Amriti, used their own funds to finance it. Hijazi told Ynetnews the pair could produce such videos every three months and urged television stations to finance more jihadist films.
