The Monitor will return next week to the subject of veteran Israel-basher Mike Wallace. This week, though, with yet another horrific suicide bombing in Jerusalem, it seemed more relevant to focus on the fanatical hatred inculcated in Palestinian young people by their elders.Last week in Washington, the Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI) screened a videotape compilation, with English subtitles, of programs seen on Iraq Television, a global satellite channel run by the Saudi-based Arab Radio and Television Network. The tape is full of examples of the lunatic anti-Semitism one regularly encounters in the Arab media, but one program is particularly nauseating: The May 7 broadcast of “Muslim Woman Magazine,” whose anchor, Doaa ‘Amer, begins that day’s show with the following introduction:

“Our report today will be a little different, because our guest is a girl, a Muslim girl, but a true Muslim. Allah willing, may our God give us the strength to educate our children the same way, so that the next generation will turn out to be true Muslims who understand that they are

Muslims and know who their enemies are. This girl will introduce herself immediately. She is the daughter of my sister in faith and of the artist, Wagdi Al-Arabi….”

The camera focuses on Ms. ‘Amer’s guest, who, viewers now see, is actually a toddler.

Toddler: Allah’s mercy and blessing upon you.

‘Amer: What’s your name?

Toddler: Basmallah.

‘Amer: Basmallah, how old are you?

Toddler: Three and a half.

‘Amer: Are you a Muslim?

Toddler: Yes.

‘Amer: Basmallah, are you familiar with the Jews?

Toddler: Yes.

‘Amer: Do you like them?

Toddler: No.

‘Amer: Why don’t you like them?

Toddler: Because…

‘Amer: Because they are what?

Toddler: They’re apes and pigs.

‘Amer: Because they are apes and pigs. Who said they are so?

Toddler: Our God.

‘Amer: Where did he say this?

Toddler: In the Koran.

‘Amer: Right, he said that about them in the Koran….

‘Amer: …. Did [the Jews] love our master, Muhammad?

Toddler: No.

‘Amer: No. What did the Jews do to him?

Toddler: [Looking unsure of herself] The Prophet Muhammad killed someone…

‘Amer: Obviously, our master Muhammad was strong and could have killed them. All right, you know the traditions about the Jews and what they did to the Prophet Muhammad?

Toddler: [Mumbles]

‘Amer: Is there a story you know?

Toddler: Yes, the story about the Jewish woman.

‘Amer: The Jewish woman? What did she do to our master, the Prophet Muhammad?

Toddler: The Jewish woman?

‘Amer: Yes.

Toddler: There was a Jewish woman who invited the Prophet and his friends. When he asked her, “Did you put poison (in my food)?” she said to him, “Yes.” He asked her, “Why did you do this?” and she replied, “If you are a liar you will die and Allah will not protect you; if you speak the truth Allah will protect you.”

‘Amer: And our God protected the Prophet Muhammad, of course.

Toddler: And he said to his friends, “I will kill this lady.”

‘Amer: Of course, because she put poison in his food, this Jewess.

Toddler: Oh.

‘Amer: …. Allah be praised…. No one could wish Allah could give him a more believing girl than she…. The next generation of children must be true Muslims. We must educate them now while they are still children so that they will be true Muslims.

With 2013 marking half a century since Kennedy’s fateful limousine ride in Dallas, the current revels are exceeding the revisionist frenzies of years past, with a seemingly endless parade of books, articles and television specials designed to assure us that, despite everything that has come to light about him since his death, JFK was a great president, or at least a very good president who would have been great had his life not been so cruelly cut short.

As someone who for the past fifteen years has been writing a column that largely focuses on the news media, I’ve read what is no doubt an altogether unhealthy number of books on the subject. Most of them were instantly forgettable while some created a brief buzz but failed to pass the test of time. And then there were those select few that merited a permanent spot on the bookshelf.

George W. Bush has been getting some positive media coverage lately, with recent polls showing him at least as popular as his successor, Barack Obama, and a big new book about the Bush presidency by New York Times chief White House correspondent Peter Baker (Days of Fire, Doubleday) portraying Bush as a much more hands-on chief executive than his detractors ever imagined.

Readers who’ve stuck with the Monitor over the years will forgive this rerun of sorts, but as we approach the fortieth anniversary of the Yom Kippur War – and with the stench of presidential indecisiveness hanging so heavily over Washington these days – it seemed only appropriate to revisit Richard Nixon’s role in enabling Israel to recover from the staggering setbacks it suffered in the first week of fighting.

Shakespeare had it right. The evil that men do indeed lives after them. Case in point: Nahum Goldmann, who served in a variety of Jewish and Zionist organizational leadership posts from the 1920s through the 1970s.

Oscar “Ossie” Schectman, who scored the first basket in the history of the league that evolved into the National Basketball Association, died last week at age 94.

It’s certainly been a while, hasn’t it? And yet it seems like the conversation was never really interrupted, as I’ve enjoyed, in the three and a half months since this column last appeared, many an interesting exchange, via e-mail and phone, with some very intelligent readers.
