    (by Aldo Baquis)  - TEL AVIV - ''Those who believe are never afraid''. These words, written by a rabbi two centuries ago, have been recycled by the military wing of Hamas in a 'psychological war' video calling for an uprising against ''Zionist usurpers'', using mockingly an Israeli song popular a decade ago. In the new video (ynetnews.com/articles/0,7340,L-4707797,00.html), the armed believers are members of Hamas's Ezzedin Al-Qassam Brigades and the young Palestinians that have been killed in recent days in attacks in East Jerusalem and the West Bank. ''We are God's fighters,'' say the copywriters of the Palestinian Islamic movement. ''We have been sent to eliminate Zionists with fire, swords and missiles.'' Against a fast-paced 'Mi-Shema'amin' - performed in its heyday by Israeli singer Eyal Golan - are images that show the Palestinians' ever more intense fight against the ''usurpers'' who have ''black days'' in store for them. Images of well-known Israeli generals such as Moshe Dayan and Ariel Sharon are shown going up in flames. The message of the video is that ''the future belongs to Palestinian fighters''. The last scene shows an El Al plan taking off, implying that Israelis who cherish their lives have time to leave Palestine of their own accord. Another video has been circulating on Palestinian social networks in recent days showing a young Palestinian stabbing two Orthodox Jews repeatedly in the Old City of Jerusalem, as well as one that ''teaches'' how best to attack victims.

    The incitement to a 'new intifada' - warn several analysts - by now comes more online than through Palestinian politics, rendering it more difficult to contain.
