According to the watchdog group Palestinian Media Watch, recent programming on state-run Palestinian Authority television starkly showcases the genocidal, anti-Semitic, jihadist-in-training propaganda into which the Palestinian-Arab youth population has long been indoctrinated. Here is how Palestinian Media Watch lays out the setting:
During the current month of Ramadan, official Palestinian Authority TV is broadcasting a series called Children of the Village Chief. The series portrays Arab life around the creation of the State of Israel in 1948 and afterwards in a village in what was until the Six-Day War in 1967, the “West Bank” of the Kingdom of Jordan.
The first program starts with the so-called Palestinian “Nakba” — the “catastrophe” of the creation of Israel — and continues until the 1980s. In the series, which deals primarily with daily life during this period, attitudes to Israel and Jews are likewise expressed.
In one episode, a boy around the age of 10 asks his uncle to teach him how to use a rifle because he wants to shoot at “the Jews.” The uncle willingly answers his nephew’s request, explaining that he should only aim at “your enemy,” who the boy then identifies as “the Jews” …
Palestinian Media Watch then records the full television exchange between the Palestinian-Arab boy and his uncle:
Nephew Fares: “Uncle Ibrahim, I want you to teach me how to use the rifle”
Uncle Ibrahim: “Why do you want to learn to shoot?”
Fares: “So that if the Jews come to the village, I’ll shoot them like you shot them at Khirbet Al-Loz.” …
Ibrahim: “Fares, your weapon will only be pointed at your enemy, and you know who your enemy is.”
Fares: “The Jews, who removed us from our land and our homes, like they removed us from Khirbet Al-Loz.”
Ibrahim: “Therefore, Fares, immediately when you see your target, aim at it well and shoot it. Are you ready?”
Ibrahim: “Go ahead, hero.”
The watchdog group then elaborates on other Jew-hatred disseminated in the same television series: “In a later episode, Jews are portrayed as potential rapists and ‘impure schemers.’ Set during the Six-Day-War in 1967, the villagers discuss running away before ‘the Jews’ arrive, because the villagers ‘have wives and honor is precious’ and they fear the Jewish soldiers will rape the village women.”
As Aaron Bandler of Jewish Journal observes, this is hardly the first time that Palestinian Media Watch has unmasked virulent Jew-hatred emanating from Palestinian Authority state-run television: “Palestinian Media Watch has extensively documented the anti-Semitism promulgated on PA TV, which included a sheikh calling for Jews to be ‘killed one by one’ in December 2018 and an October sermon stating that Adolf Hitler was punishing Jews for their ‘mentality of superiority over other people.'”
Polls consistently demonstrate that the Palestinian-Arabs are among the most virulently anti-Semitic group of people in the world. For example, a landmark 2014 global survey from the Anti-Defamation League showed that a whopping 93% of Palestinian-Arabs harbor anti-Semitic views.
A report in The Forward last September highlighted the extent of Palestinian-Arab textbook indoctrination for impressionable young children being educated in Palestinian-Arab schools:
Textbooks created as part of the Palestinian Authority’s new K-12 educational curriculum “are teaching Palestinian children that there can be no compromise” and “indoctrinat[e] for death and martyrdom,” according to an analysis by a watchdog group. …
For example, fourth graders learn addition, and ninth graders learn multiplication, by counting the number of Palestinian “martyrs” killed by Israel over the years. And a physics textbook uses the example of a Palestinian wielding a slingshot against Israeli soldiers to teach Newton’s Second Law of Motion.
The textbooks also use “Jews” and “Zionists” interchangeably when criticizing Israel’s actions, the report continued. The report also found that Israelis are almost never depicted positively and that Israel is almost always referred to as the “Zionist Occupation.”
