The Israeli song was accused of instilling hatred of Palestinians in the hearts of children and encouraging their extermination (social media)

A song entitled "Children of the Generation of Victory" by a group of young people in Israel recently went viral on Hebrew social media platforms, urging the occupation soldiers to exterminate everything in Gaza.

Israel's state broadcaster Kan aired the song under the title "We will annihilate everyone in Gaza," but was later forced to remove the clip after it sparked angry global responses.

The lyrics of the song "Children of the Victory Generation" express support for IDF soldiers and security forces, and urge children in Israel in particular, and all Jews in general, to destroy the Islamic Resistance Movement (Hamas).

The Israeli body described the racist song as a "song of friendship," stressing that "its new lyrics express the children of the victorious generation, and that within a year there will be nothing left there (referring to the annihilation of everything in Gaza), and these children will return to their homes (the settlements surrounding Gaza), and the world will see how we eliminate our enemy (the Palestinians)."

According to Hebrew media, the new song is an adaptation of the song "Evils," written by the late Israeli Haim Ghouri.

The new version of the song is performed by Israeli children between the ages of 6 and 12, and "all of these children were evacuated from their homes in the settlements surrounding the Gaza Strip about 45 days ago," according to Hebrew media.

The new song was processed and produced by Rosenbaum Communications Group, with lyrics written by Ofer Rosenbaum and Shulamit Stolero, who stressed their keenness not to change the choir (a band) from the song "Evils" known in every home in Israel.

The author of the new song, Ofer Rosenbaum, told Hebrew media that "the children of the clip are the generation of victory, these children stand strong, proud, love their homeland, and they have only one request, which will not be repeated again: the State of Israel owes security, to them, their families and to all citizens, and we will only achieve this security by achieving a complete victory in Gaza without any concessions."

One of the children participating in the song, Aden Nezof, 11, from the settlement of Sderot, said, "I know and believe that our soldiers will triumph over the terrorists, my city will return and prosper and I will be able to return home."

Lyrics to the modified song "Evils":

Autumn night falls on the coast of Gaza

Planes bomb destruction

Here the Israeli Army crosses the line

To eliminate swastika holders

Another year there will be nothing

And we will return safely to our homeland

In a year, we'll eliminate them all

Then we go back to plowing our fields.

And we will all remember

The beauty and purity of crystal

Because such evil

He won't let our hearts forget

Holy love with blood

He'll come back to bloom among us.

And now the words are over

And our souls would be screaming

Because our soul is not only our homeland

Because our souls today are also fighting

With one nation, with eternity forever

We will not stop and protect our homes

We will not be silent and we will you will never see

How our enemies are being destroyed today

And we will all remember

The beauty and purity of crystal

Because such evil

He won't let our hearts forget

Holy love with blood

He'll come back to bloom among us.

The new song included an explicit call for genocide called "friendship", punctuated by scenes of tears shedding and funerals for soldiers, and likening airstrikes on Gaza to autumn.

The video of the song received harsh criticism and sparked wide controversy, as activists considered that Israel's drift and persistence in its crimes had reached the point of inciting hatred on the lips of its children as well, denouncing the lack of humanity in the lyrics.

Journalist Dan Cohen, on his X account, questioned why the occupation indoctrinated hatred of children.

Why do they teach their children to hate?

Geopolitical analyst Patrick Henningsen commented, "Americans need to understand that Zionism is a racist ideology and genocide, just like any other movement or sect of racial superiority."

Activist Lima Pal said that what "children learn from the methods of war is to prioritize destruction and killing, and to endorse war and genocide!"

Children in the Gaza Strip are suffering greatly as a result of the war waged by the Israeli occupation on the Strip, where thousands of them were killed and injured due to the heavy shelling targeting homes, schools and hospitals.

The tragedy of children in Gaza is compounded by the suffocating Israeli blockade and the policy of starvation practiced by the occupation against them, as electricity, water and food have been cut off from them.

The United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF) condemned the grave violations suffered by children in the Gaza Strip during the Israeli war, stressing that there is no safe place for them to take refuge, and that the number of children killed in the Gaza Strip since the beginning of the war exceeded 5,9, while the number of injured young people exceeded <>,<>.

UNICEF Executive Director Catherine Russell said violations against Gaza's children include killing, maiming, abduction, targeting schools and hospitals and denying humanitarian access, which the UN condemns.
