Video: Hamas TV glorifies child jihadis

posted at 2:11 pm on April 2, 2007 by Allahpundit

Here’s the latest excrescence from Al-Aqsa Television, better known as Hamas TV. This is no local station, according to the Telegraph: they transmit region-wide thanks in part to plentiful funds from mysterious sources smuggled in via suitcase across the Egyptian border with Gaza. Remember that the next time you hear a sob story about Palestinians starving from a lack of humanitarian aid. A taste of the programming:

Mr Shtaiwi insists that it broadcasts a range of opinions – the new Palestinian Authority information minister Mustafa Barghouti, a politician from the secular Third Way movement is a frequent guest. But programmes also include strident religious lessons from bearded sheikhs in red keffiyah scarves, advice from headscarved women on dealing with polygamy, newscasts that refer to “Zionist aggression” and commercials that entreat viewers to resist Israeli occupation, using shots of masked men with guns and Qassam rockets.

They were also responsible naturally enough for that child-bomber PSA we posted a few weeks ago. The Telegraph claims they’re gaining ground in the ratings war with Al Jazeera and Al Arabiya, too, so look for those two to jihad-up their programming even further to compete.

No reason to be offended. It is allah’s wish to have little kids blow up all of the infidels.

This is one of the strongest reasons why will lose this fight. How can you fight an enemy that does this with its own children. And as Mark Steyn has pointed out the palestinians one resource they have plenty of is young men.

Scary world Now and to come Lock n Load folks its gonna get a lot bumpier

Because they’re not white. Lefties have knee-jerk sympathy for people of color, regardless if they are religious supremacists or not.

Kevin raises a great question. How do you fight an enemy who places so little value on life? Allah unites them but power divides them. Look at the fighting between Fatwa and Hamas, or Shia and Sunni. I’m convinced the best way to end western terrorism is to let them kill each other. Find ways to covertly incite them and let nature take its course. Western military action seems only to temporarily distract them.

Nope. I think it’s time to take the blinds off the falcon. Isreal is not defenseless; they’re hamstrung.

the use of children in the world of Islamic warfare is nothing new, in fact it is featured prominently in their war fighting manuals.
During the 10 year Iraq – Iran war the Iranian ayatollahs used children wrapped in carpets to locate and blow paths through minefields. At first they didn’t use the carpets but they found the scattered body parts a little hard to deal with. They also gave the kids little keys which they were told were keys to heaven to makde them feel better about rolling across landmines.

LakeRuins on April 2, 2007 at 3:10 PM

*sigh*

And it’s not even surprising anymore. Neither is the perennial response by the left, “Hey! Look at Israel! They’re evil too!”

At what point exactly will the world wake up to this madness? When Jews start disappearing in the night worldwide? If then?

spmat on April 2, 2007 at 3:17 PM

This is getting frightening. Not teaching the holocaust for fear of offending…allowing Islamists to behave any way they want when boarding/attempting to hijack airliners…giving US constitutional rights to terrorists captured in the battlefield…

The leftists will soon have the Supreme Court “discover” a constitutional right to gather and offer up Jews for slaughter, to appease the Islamists, right next to the right to abortion…what’s next?

stonemeister on April 2, 2007 at 3:44 PM

Carbon offsets….. oops. Nevermind.

What’s a little kid supposed to do with 72 virgins? Virgins don’t lactate.

For a good look into the pychotic mind of middle eastern parents, read “Now They Call Me Infidel” by Nonie Darwish. It’s something we’ll never quite understand … and may have to some day be destroyed if the Bush Doctrine of spreading democracy doesn’t work. And that may be the problem, we need to spread Representative Repulicanism: not democracy. We saw what happen when the Pali’s voted in “democratic elections”.

There is no word in the english language (or any other language I can think of) that could begin to describe the contempt I have for these people. Scum, would be a compliment.

Answer: protesting your own government’s actions presumably can affect change. Protesting your country’s enemies’ actions? What’s the point? I am much more disgusted that the Muslim world doesn’t object and speak out against these monsters.

Hope the lawn hasn’t been totally annihilated. Plants are our friends!!!

Gross but a good idea for a band name: The Lactating Virgins…
