    Hamas TV teaches children to kill ‘all Jews’

    Anyone who hasn’t seen Hamas TV is missing a treat. Of course the low production values are part of the fun. But for the Palestinian audiences, most entertaining of all seems to be the sight of watching Palestinian children being taught to murder every Jew. Often by an adult dressed up as a giant bumble bee. Because one of the most popular characters in the death-fest that is ‘Al-Aqsa TV’ is indeed ‘Nahul’, the giant cuddly bee.

    Anybody who still thinks that Hamas is a legitimate ‘resistance’ organisation, or that the recent Hamas-Fatah unity deal could in any way help bring about a peaceful resolution to the Israeli-Palestinian border dispute, should just spend one a half minutes watching the clip above. It is from a programme broadcast on Hamas's 'Al-Aqsa TV' earlier this month. And I know, I know, I am sure Nahul and the children he is indoctrinating meant to say ‘Struggle against the Zionists until such a time as we can come to a peaceful two-state solution’. But instead official Hamas TV once again teaches Palestinian children to kill ‘all Jews’ instead.

    Transcript (courtesy of PalWatch):

    Child host: "OK, so what does a policeman do?"

    Nahul (adult in giant bee costume): "He catches thieves, and people who make trouble."

    Child host: "And shoots Jews. Right?"

    Girl: "Yes."

    Child host: "You want to be like him?"

    [Girl nods]

    Child host: "Allah willing, when you grow up."

    Girl: "So that I can shoot Jews."

    [Nahul the bee cheers]

    Child host: "All of them? All of them?"

    Girl: "Yes."

    Child host: "Good."
