PALWATCH – A glimpse of the world of education in Sur Baher in East Jerusalem was recently made available by Hamas TV. A broadcast showed how the Jerusalem children in the Islamic Riyad (Gardens of) Al-Aqsa School were taught to sing about desiring death: “May our blood be shed.
They also sang the following in front of the cameras: “How strong is the army of Al-Aqsa. I am a soldier, defending its protected area. How precious is the land of Al-Aqsa. I shall give up my life for its sake.”
This footage of young children singing and being taught these lines in the Islamic Riyad Al-Aqsa School in Sur Baher appeared in a documentary program entitled “The Shahids’(Martyrs’) Wedding” on Hamas’s Al-Aqsa TV.
In the past, Palestinian Authority TV has also shown children in PA schools reciting poems glorifying Martyrdom death, for example including the words: “I have let my land drink my blood,I love the way of Martyrdom.”
Daughter of suicide bomber Reem Riyashi sings to her mother: “Now I know what was more precious than us” – your bomb was more precious than your children! Girl then vows to follow in her Mommy’s footsteps and picks up a stick of TNT.
