A partner in peace? The Palestinian Authority systematically trains children to hate Israel and embrace Jihad.
A popular children’s show on PA official TV teaches Palestinian children to deny Israel’s existence and anticipate the destruction of the Jewish State.
In the clip below, a Palestinian boy says that he had never visited Israel. The host immediately interrupted him, saying: “What Israel? It’s our land.”
The boy responded: “Israel is our land – the 1948 lands,” and the host reiterated, “It’s our land, occupied Palestine.”
It didn’t stop there – the host continued with his anti-Israel propaganda:
“Our land, occupied Palestine. It’s Haifa, Jaffa, Acre (i.e., Israeli cities). These are our occupied lands, the 1948 lands that Israel occupied in 1948… Allah willing, they will return to us some day and will not be under the rule of the occupation.”
This form of education basically negates any chance for a peace process or a possible territorial compromise as part of that course of action.
PA Propaganda: “What Israel? It’s our land.”
Television shows that teach Palestinian youth to view Israel as illegitimate with no right to exist, deny the Jewish historical connection to the land and portray Israel as a colonialist implant.
The Official PA daily, Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, wrote in August that “Israel is a “colonialist, settler and Orientalist state, which fabricated a historical narrative in order to colonize Palestine.” The editorial further alleges that Israel and the US created the Islamic State (IS or ISIS) terror group to actualize their colonial aspirations.
How can we ever have peace if Palestinian children are taught to expect Israel’s annihilation?
