“All Jews hate all Arabs and want to kill them” - Hamas demonizes Jews in TV series

Nan Jacques Zilberdik  |

In order to promote its antisemitic and anti-Israel messages, Hamas uses its TV channel to demonize Jews. In a recent episode of a TV series, Hamas portrayed Jews as inherent haters of all Arabs, suggesting Jewish parents teach this hate to their children.

In a scene in the TV series Self-Sacrificing Fighter (Fida’i), a Jewish family sits by the hospital bed of a relative, discussing who might have injured him. They reach the “conclusion” that this could only have been an Arab. The son exclaims that he “hates Arabs” and “wants to kill them.” His statement receives instant support from the adult relatives: “We all hate Arabs”:

Ultra-orthodox Jewish woman: “You don’t know who hit you?”
Uri: “No, it was night and the person who hit me left. I want to know who it was.”
Man: “Uri, do you suspect anyone?”
Uri: “Not anyone in particular. But I want to know who would dare to hit Uri. Definitely someone from the filthy neighborhood.”
Child: “Definitely an Arab. I hate Arabs. I want to kill them!”
Man: “My dear Noam, I want you to be like this. You should always hate Arabs. All our lives we hate Arabs. We don’t love Arabs.”
Woman: “We all hate Arabs, dear. All of us.”
