The video above shows dozens of children in Gaza chanting:

“Millions of Martyrs are marching to Jerusalem!”

They are living proof (at least for now) that kids in Gaza, as in the PA areas, are taught that death as a “Martyr” is an ideal, and that seeking death in confrontations with Israel is what is expected of them. This is further stressed by the fact that an adult is heard encouraging the children in the background and chanting the slogan together with them.

Statements by two Hamas leaders – who live safely abroad, far from the Gaza Strip -also emphasize that they completely disregard Palestinian civilian lives, and are happily “sacrificing” them as “Martyrs” in the war against Israel, as was published yesterday by Palestinian Media Watch.

The video of the children was posted by the official PA daily Al-Hayat Al-Jadida on its Facebook page, which stresses the fact exposed for decades by PMW that the PA, just like Hamas, encourages children to seek death for “Palestine.” Text on the screen throughout the video also repeats the mantra:“Millions of Martyrs are marching to Jerusalem.”
