PA TV kids program promotes boycotting Israeli goods, including from “Palestinian brothers in the Interior (i.e., Israeli Arabs)”

Official PA TV program The Best Home, on boycotting Israeli goods, hosting boycott campaign spokesman Ma'arouf Al-Rifai. This program aired on Sept. 29, 2017; Oct. 27, 2017; and Oct. 28, 2017.  

Girl: "It is forbidden for us to buy Israeli goods, because we are giving the racist occupation [money] to buy bullets and explosives in order to kill our Palestinian families and children."
PA TV host Walaa Al-Battat: "Bravo, that is right. As my friend said, if we support the Israeli goods, God forbid, we are buying from them indirectly - we are supporting their [efforts] to kill us." […]
Puppet Raed: "Uncle Muhammad Hajj Ahmed told me that we have Palestinian brothers in the Interior (i.e., Israeli Arabs) who have factories where delicious things are manufactured. How can we tell the difference?"
Walaa Al-Battat: "Right. Our brothers in the Palestinian Interior (i.e., Palestinian term for Israel) are our brothers, Raed, and we support them. Raed, what I want to say to you is that they are Palestinians and they are our brothers, but the Israelis prevent them from using Palestinian goods. Do you understand how far things have gone?"
Ma'arouf Al-Rifai: "Even the factories owned by our Palestinian brothers in the Interior, in the '48 lands (i.e., Israeli lands), even these factories pay taxes to the occupation [State of Israel], and they employ Palestinian and Israeli workers."
Walaa Al-Battat: "They are forced to do this, it is not done willingly."
Ma'arouf Al-Rifai: "Right, it is not done willingly. Therefore, support for these factories leads to a final result of supporting the occupier and the occupation's economy. Therefore, we focus only on products that are manufactured on the lands of the West Bank and solely by Palestinian workers, Palestinian owners, and Palestinian funding."
Walaa Al-Battat: "Bravo, bravo, a round of applause for Mr. Ma’arouf."
