Palestinian Television teaches hatred

The IDF (Israel's army, www.idf.il) has published a report on how Palestinian kids are taught to hate at a young age:

Lessons in Hatred, in Palestinian Schools

A program broadcast on Palestinian television featured young Palestinian girls describing the central role of the armed struggle (against Israel) in their lives.

One small girl described how in her Palestinian elementary school, the physical education teacher directs the game "Soldier and Arabs". The children take various objects and pretend that they are weapons. They use these "weapons" to "kill" other girls, playing martyrs. They then grasp the "martyr" and shout, "Martyr, wait! Wait! Take us with you to Paradise!"

Another child spoke of her 6 year-old brother, who spends the entire day playing with toy weapons. He has revolvers, machine guns, and heavy arms. The girls explained that "The children imitate what they see on television. My brother tells my sisters: 'I am a martyr. You should now escort me and rejoice."

[David adds: "Martyrs" are what the Palestinian call their genocide bombers that murder unarmed civilians including babies and children]

I add such reports to the "Palestinian Terrorism" section since it shows how Palestinians can bring themselves to commit suicide bombings - it is not because they are poor and desperate, but more because their hate overcomes their survival instinct. They are taught to hate at a young age.
