This is the Hamas that the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) was named an unindicted co-conspirator for aiding in the Holy Land Foundation jihad funding case. “Arab kids in Sur Baher, Jerusalem taught to sing: ‘May our blood be shed,'” by Itamar Marcus and Nan Jacques Zilberdik for Palestinian Media Watch, January 4:
A Hamas terrorist arrested last month for planning to shoot a missile at a sports stadium in Jerusalem, was a resident of the Sur Baher neighborhood in East Jerusalem.
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.” […]
The following is the transcript of the words of the songs Arab children were taught in Sur Baher in East Jerusalem:
[Sign on school:] “The Islamic Riyad (Gardens of) Al-Aqsa Schools – Sur Baher” (Jerusalem)
Young children in school sing:
“How beautiful are the gardens of Al-Aqsa.
I am a bud atop its hills.”
Footage of children doing “V” signs while others try to hide their faces as they hold up stones and a rifle bullet.
“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.”
Young children in classroom sing:
“In the way of Allah we proceed aspiring to raise the flag.
May the glory of the religion (Islam) return, and may our blood be shed.”
