Headline: Palestinian children's television: Jews are "evil," "barbaric monkeys"

by Jordan Schachtel

The official Palestinian Authority television network aired a children’s program over the weekend in which a schoolgirl recited a poem that described Jews as "monkeys" and the “most evil of creations."

Palestinian Media Watch translated the May 29 episode on PA TV from Arabic to English. The poem describes Jews as the people who “
murdered Allah’s pious prophets” and “barbaric monkeys.”

On a show called “The Best Home,” she recited into the camera:

"I do not fear the rifle
because your throngs are in delusion and are ignorant herds...
O, you who murdered Allah’s pious prophets
O, you who were brought up on spilling blood
O sons of Zion, O most evil among creations..."

The camera then switches over to the Palestinian television host, who, clapping enthusiastically, states, “Bravo! Jerusalem is the eternal capital of Palestine, we will never forget it.”

Palestinian Media Watch
also found that on the same day the television program aired, a prominent cleric at Jerusalem’s Al-Aqsa mosque was teaching students of Islam that Jews "prepare their matzah… with the blood of children."During his sermon, Sheikh Khaled Al-Mughrabi also claimed that Jews represent the "Devil or Satan." The cleric told his students, “It’s known that the Jews were behind” the 9/11 attacks on the World Trade Center.

Overt Jew-hatred remains a widespread epidemic in the Palestinian territories. A recent survey conducted by the Anti-Defamation League found that 93 percent of Palestinians in the West Bank and Gaza harbor anti-Semitic attitudes.
