Child recites poem:
Jews – “Allah’s enemies, the sons of pigs”
“murdered children,” “cut off their limbs,”
“raped the women in the city squares”
and “defiled Allah’s book”
Earlier this month, Palestinian children were taught Islam-based hatred of Jews on the weekly PA TV children’s show The Best Home. A young girl recited a poem filled with both Islamic hate messages and other libels demonizing Jews. The poem taught Palestinian children that Jews, “Allah’s enemies, the sons of pigs,” defiled the Quran and Jerusalem, both crimes against Islam, and “murdered children,” “cut off their limbs,” and “raped the women in the city squares.” Palestinian Media Watch has documented that this weekly PA TV children’s program teaches hatred and denial of Israel’s existence.
The suggested response to Jews and Zionists offered in this hate poem is military and Islamic:
Where are the nation of Islam and the Jihad fighters?”
At the end of the recital of the hate poem, the young program host applauded enthusiastically and said:
The poem also included a tribute to Mahmoud Abbas’ Fatah organization and Arafat:
This Islam-based hatred that in the past was associated exclusively with Hamas is now appearing in mainstream PA children’s education as well.
The following is the text of the hate poem recited by a young girl on PA TV’s children’s program:
Girl: “Allah created me and formed meHe made me prouder and made me a PalestinianHe made defiance flow like blood in my veinsAnd I made the revolution burst forth like clay stonesI raised the flags of certain victory:Allah’s book [the Quran] and the tradition of the most esteemed among prophets [Muhammad].I called in the voice of hidden justiceI lit a fire like volcanoes under their feetI refused to be submissive and degradedI rejected [everything] but dying with the honor that will give me lifeFrom a nation that has forgotten the Muslims’ heroism- Omar ibn al-Khattab and Saladin – [Muslim fighters who conquered Jerusalem]from between the whistles of the bullets I sing:’Long live the nation of Fatah and Yasser Arafat’Allah’s enemies, the sons of pigs (i.e., Jews, in Islamic tradition)Destroyed and uprooted the olive and fig treesThey murdered children with guns, like snakesThey cut off their limbs with stones and knivesThey raped the women in the city squaresThey defiled Allah’s book [the Quran] in front of millionsWhere is the nation of Islam?Where are the nation of Islam and the Jihad fighters?Where is the fear of Allah in Jerusalem, which has been defiled by the Zionists?”PA TV host: “Bravo, applause, applause, applause to Hadeel.”
