Headline: Palestinian Authority launching TV channel for Israeli Arabs

Sub-Headline: Survey shows 40 percent of Israeli Arab youth feel part of Israeli society

The Palestinian Authority has launched a television channel targeting Israel's 1.6 million Arab citizens. Named F48 – short for Falastin 1948 (Palestine 1948) - the channel will air mainly cultural and social affairs programs designed to forge a connection between the descendants of the Arabs who stayed in Israel after it was established in 1948 and those who left or were expelled...

Meanwhile, the latest broadcast of a children’s program on official Palestinian Authority television shows a young girl reciting a hate poem filled with degrading expressions and insults against Jews, Palestinian Media Watch (PMW) reported on Monday.

On the show called "The Best Home," a Palestinian girl invoked Qur’anic language by calling Jews 'barbaric monkeys,' 'the most evil among creations,' and those 'who murdered Allah’s pious prophets.' Jews are also said to be 'throngs… brought up on spilling blood… impure… [and] filth.' The girl continues her recital saying she is not afraid of the Jews’ 'barbarity' because Jerusalem will “vomit out” the impure Jews.

The expression 'barbaric monkeys' is taken from a verse in the Qur’an that says, '…those whom Allah has cursed and with whom He became angry and made of them apes and pigs,' PMW reported. The Qur’an also teaches that the Jews murdered Allah’s prophets, with the verse, 'Say, then why did you kill the prophets of Allah before, if you are [indeed] believers?'”
