Teaching children to love death. “Arab song for kids: Allah loves martyrs,” by Roee Nahmias for Ynet News, June 22 (thanks to Sr. Soph):
Anti-Israel television for children: The Birds of Paradise band has released a new song in which children express their desire to be shaheeds (martyrs).
The song, sung by young children on the Birds of Paradise television channel, includes the lyrics, “When we die as shaheeds we’ll go to paradise. No, don’t say we’re young. This life has made us old. Without Palestine, what significance is there to our lives? Even if they give us the whole world, we’ll never forget her (Palestine).”
During the song, an older man appears. “Children, we must keep our religious commandments,” he sings. “There is no god but Allah, and Allah loves shaheeds.”
At the end of the song, the children sing, “Allah watch over the children of Palestine. Allah will make our prayers come true.”…
