Hamas TV Encourages Kids to Become Journalists

nahoul_killers.jpe

We regularly hear about Palestinian television shows indoctrinating children to become "martyrs." Therefore, any sign of Palestinian television promoting bona fide professions with a future would be welcome, right?

On Friday, Nahoul the bee, cousin of the slain Farfur, appeared in a segment in which a young girl professed her interest in becoming a journalist.

PMW translated:

A young caller, Sabah, is asked what she wants to be when she grows up.

Sabah: “Journalist.”

Saraa', girl in studio: “Wow, journalist! Nahool, we need journalists.”

Nahoul: "Why? So that… so that they will photograph the Jews when they are killing Farfur and the little children?

Saraa’: “Yes, Nahoul.”

Another young caller says: “We will go on [the path] of Jihad when we grow up.”

Nahoul: “Yes, we are all Jihad warriors.

Saraa’: “Allah willing.” [Al-Aqsa TV (Hamas), July 20, 2007]

The bottomline message: Before you die while killing others for Allah, pick up a camera in service of Palestine. If you're really good, maybe you can get your propaganda into a foreign news outlet, just like the Hamas man who reportedly worked for the BBC.
