EU-funded NGO glorifies violence and hijackings - on PA TV program for youth

TV host 1: "People of Israel, don't get caught up in arrogance, the hands on the clock will surely come round.
Theft of the land does not scare us... The long thirst does not scare us, for there is water still in the depths of the rocks.
You defeated the armies, but you did not defeat the feelings.
You cut off tree tops, but the roots remained."
TV host 2: "Expect us always, expect us where least expected.
We're in every airport, and in every ticket.
We emerge in Rome and in Zurich from under the rock.
[Note: Reference to PLO/PFLP hijacking of El Al plane in Rome in 1968 and the attempted hijacking of El AL plane in Zurich in 1969.]
We emerge from behind statues and flowerpots.
Our men arrive without warning, with the fury of thunder and the pounding of rain.
They come in the Prophet's robe and with Omar's sword (Muslim conqueror).
Remember, always remember that America, important as it is, is not Allah the Almighty and Omnipotent, and that America with all its strength will not stop the birds from flying.
A small rifle in the hand of a small boy can kill the big one."
TV host 2: "Good evening, dear viewers, and welcome to our youth program Speak Up. Tonight you have greetings from the Palestinian Youth Association -- PYALARA and from PA TV. Today we greet the NGO Development Center -- NDC that helps us discuss youth affairs."
