“Ah, now I get it.” As do so few in the West. “Terror TV: Latest Hamas kiddie hate show outrage,” from the New York Daily News, March 20:
Get this straight: Whether Israel builds 0 or 1,300 or 13,000 homes in Jerusalem, it is a democracy ready to return to the negotiating table in good faith tomorrow.
But Hamas, the terror organization that controls Gaza, has no such interest. Witness the rocket fired from Gaza into Israel on Thursday, killing a man. Witness the incitements to hatred that Hamas refuses to relinquish.
This last is most vividly seen on children’s television. There, the folks who brought you the jihadist bee and the martyr mouse are pushing full-steam ahead.
This month, Hamas’ Al Aqsa TV aired a children’s puppet show that told the tale of a sweet little boy, Alloush, who learns about a mosque that Jews seek to turn into a synagogue. The innocent child reports this news to his wise Uncle Hassan, who sets Alloush straight about what’s in store for the mosque:
“The Jews come to defile it,” he declares, announcing “a real catastrophe for the Arab and Islamic world.”
Hassan issues a rallying cry:
“Alloush and dear children, each one of you must tell his father, his grandfather and the rest of his family that they should all arise as one. They must rise up against the criminal Zionists, who are planning to destroy Jerusalem and to turn the Islamic waqf [a building or land used for Muslim religious purposes] into something bad. We must rise against the Zionist criminals, the enemies of Allah, and liberate Jerusalem and all the holy places. Do you hear, Alloush?”
The little boy responds: “Ah, now I get it.”
Of course he does. But does the Obama administration?…
