Parable in PLO youth magazine depicts Israeli soldiers as killers of Palestinian children

A parable describes a donkey that on TV sees a group of lions brutally devouring a zebra. The donkey wants to ask the UN to save the forest animals from the predators, but then remembers the following:
 “He [once] saw on TV Israeli soldiers who open fire on Palestinian children in the streets and in their bedrooms and at the doorways to their homes, and the UN Secretary-General is unable to defend the children.”

Note: Zayzafuna is a PLO magazine for children funded by the PA. The magazine, which includes material written by both the magazine’s staff and child readers, represents the values of the educators and serves as a window into the minds of the Palestinian children submitting material to the magazine. PMW’s book Deception includes a chapter on Zayzafuna. Following PMW’s exposure of Hitler glorification in the February 2011 issue, UNESCO halted its funding of the magazine. View UNESCO’s statement and PMW's bulletin on the December 2011 issue of the magazine.
