A Palestinian child sings about victory over Israel and the US: "Daddy gave me a present, a machine gun and a rifle"

Violence is the ideal means to solve conflict. For years this has been the repeated message from both the Palestinian Authority and Hamas - from glorifying violence by honoring terrorists as role models to directly calling for the killing of Jews.

Israel, which is denied any legitimate right to any part of "Palestine," is presented along with the US as the arch-enemy against whom this violence should be directed.

Palestinian children have absorbed the message and know by heart how to sing praises to violence. In the latest episode of the weekly children's program Tomorrow's Pioneers on Hamas TV, a Palestinian boy chose to sing the following children's song:

"Daddy gave me a present, a machine gun and a rifle. When I am a big boy, I will join the Liberation Army. The army of [Izz Al-Din] Al-Qassam (Hamas), which has taught us how to defend our homeland. Our homeland is precious, precious. We [are] victorious, victorious over America and Israel. [Improvises:] Son of a bitch - what brought you to this land?"

It is worth noting that the two hosts, the young girl Saraa and Nassur, an adult in a bear costume, approved of the boy's choice of song and let him sing it. Only when the boy cursed ("Son of a bitch") did the young girl cut him off, pointing out that the "program is a program for children, not for anything else." The objection was to the boy's cursing, not to the content of the song. The adult inside the puppet ended the exchange by defending the boy: "He didn't say anything else, Saraa. He said the truth."

A Palestinian girl singing the same song was once broadcast on PA TV. To see the video, click here.

The following is the transcript of the Palestinian boy's song about victory over Israel and the US on Hamas TV:

Boy named Raad calls in from Hebron to the children's program Tomorrow's Pioneers and recites a popular song:

"Daddy gave me a present, a machine gun and a rifle. When I am a big boy, I will join the Liberation Army. The army of [Izz Al-Din] Al-Qassam (Hamas), which has taught us how to defend our homeland. Our homeland is precious, precious. We [are] victorious, victorious over America and Israel. [Improvises:] Son of a bitch [lit. "daughter of a dog" - apparently a reference to Israel] - what brought you to this land?"

Child host Saraa interrupts: "Thank you very much, Raad from Hebron, for your participation. Of course, our program is a program for children, not for anything else."

Nassur [adult host in bear costume]: "Yes, but he didn't say anything else, Saraa. He said the truth."

[Al-Aqsa TV (Hamas), Feb. 5, 2010]
