Poem in PLO youth magazine praises children who wage Jihad

Poem by a girl in 8th grade, published in PLO youth magazine Zayzafuna:
“The doors began to call… the houses began to call: Palestine, [Your] time of liberation is yet to come
Here are your children who are waging Jihad
Fighting [for] liberty with red [blood] – No submission!
A free and Arab Palestine…
I am the Palestinian girl.”

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.
