Palestinian TV To Children: When You Grow Up, Shoot All Jews

A children’s television show on a Hamas-run TV station is encouraging kids to massacre Jews when they grow up.

A young girl on Al-Aqsa TV’s “Tomorrow’s Pioneers” told a child host that she wants to grow up to be a policeman so she “can shoot Jews,” according to a translation of the May 2 episode by Palestinian Media Watch.

The host then excitedly asked: “All of them?”

“Yes,” the young girl replied, to which the child host responded, “good.”


At another point during the episode, a second host dressed in a friendly bee costume told a boy who called into the show to attack any Jews that come near him.

“Listen, friend, do like this with your hands, and when they come to you, punch them,” he explained. “Make their face red like a tomato.”

Israel has long criticized Palestinian television for inciting hatred and violence against Jews.

Hamas, which is designated by the State Department as a terrorist organization, currently controls the Gaza Strip. Their founding charter calls not only for the destruction of Israel, but also the murder of Jews more broadly.

“The Hamas has been looking forward to implement Allah’s promise whatever time it might take,” the charter reads. “The prophet, prayer and peace be upon him, said: The time will not come until Muslims will fight the Jews (and kill them); until the Jews hide behind rocks and trees, which will cry: O Muslim! There is a Jew hiding behind me, come on and kill him!”

The Los Angeles Times is reporting that Hamas and its rival Fatah, which controls the West Bank, have come to terms on forming a unity government for the first time since 2007.
