Palestinian Authority media and schools have escalated incitement of violence against Israel by interviewing children who justify killing Jews for the objective of boycotting Israeli products.
Of course, if the children kill all the Jews, there won’t be any Israeli products to boycott, and that is precisely the point.
Palestinian Media Watch (PMW) translated and published a video of an official PA broadcast of a Hebron school’s theater activity aimed at promoting a boycott against Israel.
One charming boy, with a kefiyeh headdress, said:
I came to rehearse the play in order to boycott Israeli products and fight the Jews, kill them, and defeat them. The goal is to boycott Israeli products.
A PA television reporter explained to anyone, such as the U.S. State Dept., who might not understand what was going on, “Instilling the culture of boycotting occupation products in the hearts of children and adolescents was the goal that led the Ministry of Education to place this issue at the center of all school activities throughout the homeland… Through creative activities, [students] expressed different views about support for national products and resistance through boycott.
It is no wonder that Palestinian Authority children think the way do. PMW pointed out that the Palestinian Authority Ministry of Education last year “held a sporting event named after a terrorist who placed a bomb in a refrigerator in the center of Jerusalem, murdering 15 and injuring 60.”
Also last year, “The Minister of Culture last year presented an award at a cultural event to Egyptian poet Hesham El-Gakh after he read his poem with the words ‘our enemy is Zion, Satan with a tail.'”
The head of the PA Sports Authority sponsored a ping-pong tournament named after Dalal Mughrabi, who led a bus hijacking that ended with the murder of 37 Israelis.
Boycotting Israel justifies killing Jews, ping-pong honors terror, poetry is awarded for defining Zion as Satan, athletic events memorialize terrorists, and the Obama administration insists that peace will come to Israel when it runs out of Judea and Samaria and half of Jerusalem.
President Obama has to think that way. Otherwise, how could he justify sending American taxpayers’ dollars to the PA?
