Essay in youth magazine describes Israelis as "Allah's enemies"

“With its green color [on the flag] my country will be a sister to Tunisia, and with its white – a sister to Lebanon and Syria… and with its red color a sister to Algeria, the ‘land of a million Martyrs’. And the black [color], which was our point of weakness, will be for you, oh enemies of Allah [Israelis/Jews], the color which will never leave you, by day or by night, and even in your dreams. That is a promise from a Palestinian girl – beware, just wait for me.”

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.
