A Palestinian family in Gaza have named their baby boy "Knife of Jerusalem," in "solidarity" with the wave of violent stabbing attacks against Israeli Jewish civilians and security forces.
In a video translated by MEMRI, 31-year-old Mohammed Abu Shebika of Rafah, Gaza, explained that he felt it was "the least he could do" to express his support, presumably given that he himself was unable to actually take part in the stabbing spree.
“Allah has given me a new baby, and I’ve named him ‘Knife of Jerusalem’ after the intifada of the knives, because we are now witnessing a new kind of revolution,' Abu Shebika said.
"Allah willng the third intifada will not stop," he continued, adding that the name was given specifically "in support of the martyrs" - that is, Arab terrorists killed while carrying out attacks.
The idea for the name was actually given to him by a friend.
"It was my idea and I published the post on Facebook," his proud friend told the camera. "I felt that this would gain a lot of attention on social media."
"He was over at my shop and he told me that he was going to the hospital, because his wife was having a baby," he recounted.
"He said that he did not know what name to give the baby. We were watching the music video 'Lovers of Stabbing' on TV, and I said 'how about Knife of Jerusalem?'"
"This is a really sweet name," he beamed "It's the least we could do for Jerusalem."
