Hate speech continues on official PA TV

Girl on PA TV:
"I was taught... our enemy is Satan, Zion with a tail"

by Itamar Marcus and Nan Jacques Zilberdik

Official Palestinian Authority TV continues its policy of broadcasting and promoting hate speech against Israelis and Jews, as documented by Palestinian Media Watch. Recently a young woman recited a poem including the words:
"Our enemy is Satan, Zion with a tail."

The lyrics of the poem, which were written by Egyptian poet Hesham El-Gakh, promote Pan-Arabism and explain that the speaker "has been taught" that "our wars" are religious in nature, being fought "for the Al-Aqsa Mosque" and that the enemy is Jews - "Zion, Satan with a tail."

Twice before, PMW documented that official PA TV had young children recite this hate speech.

In the latest version the young woman switched the words from "Zion, Satan with a tail" to "Satan, Zion with a tail":

"When I was young I was taught that Arabness is my honor...
and that our lands extend from one
end to the other,
and that our wars were for the Al-Aqsa Mosque,
and that our enemy is Satan, Zion
with a tail,
and that our nation's armies are outstanding."

In July, PA TV invited two small girls to recite a poem that included Islam-based hate speech and Antisemitism:

"You who murdered Allah's pious prophets (i.e., Jews in Islamic tradition)
Oh, you who were brought up on spilling blood
You have been condemned to humiliation and hardship
Oh Sons of Zion, oh most evil
among creations
Oh barbaric monkeys, wretched pigs."

The following are the different transcripts of the "Zion is Satan" poems recited on PA TV:

Girl: "When I was young I was taught that Arabness is my honor...
and that our lands extend from one end to the other,
and that our wars were for the Al-Aqsa Mosque,
and that our enemy is Satan, Zion with a tail,
and that our nation's armies are outstanding."

PA TV host: "Laila, what do you want to recite next?"
Laila: "When I was young I was taught that Arabness is my honor...
and that our lands extend from one end to the other,
and that our wars were for the Al-Aqsa Mosque,
and that our enemy, Zion, is Satan with a tail...
Our division is by your hands [Arab rulers]. May your hands be cut off.
We are fed up with our division, while all people are uniting."
Host: "Bravo, bravo, bravo."
