Holiday toy glorifies 9-11

As family members of Sept. 11 victims brace for a third holiday season without

their loved ones, the celebration of the hijackers’ atrocity continues among

Palestinians in the West Bank through the sale of children’s toys.

StrategyPage.com, a military

insiders’ newssite and forum, has posted a photograph of one of the toys

being sold in the streets of Gaza and Ramallah.

The toy depicts a joyous Osama bin Laden holding a replica of the

Pentagon in one hand and gesturing to miniature Twin Towers crowned with

flames and smoke with the other.

Palestinians glorifying the 9-11 massacre is nothing new, as hundreds

danced in the streets of the West Bank in reaction to the first reports of the

news. Palestinians blame the United States for condoning and assisting their

perceived oppression by Israel.

WorldNetDaily has

reported on the association between the head of the al-Qaida terror

network responsible for the 9-11 attack and Palestinian Authority leader

Yasser Arafat. Prior to Sept. 11, bin Laden was set to join Arafat’s uprising

against Israel. According to an intelligence report, the U.S. tipped off Israel that

al-Qaida cells in Lebanon were complete and ready to launch strikes in Israel.

They operated under the command of Imad Mughniyeh, terrorism and

intelligence consultant to Iranian spiritual leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, said

the report.

The 9-11 toy represents a tribute to bin Laden and reflects the

deep-seated hatred toward Israel manifested in scores of suicide bombings aimed at Israelis.


reported high-ranking public officials and prominent columnists in the

Middle East even promoted a claim that Jews perpetrated the terrorist attacks on New York City and the Pentagon.

Conspiracy theorists latched onto false reports in Jordan’s Al Watan

newspaper and on Lebanon’s Al-Manara

Television that 4,000 Israelis who worked in the World Trade Center didn’t

report for work on Sept. 11.

The alleged conspiracy was even touted among prominent

Muslim leaders within the United States.

“All the signs indicate that the Jews have the most to gain from an

explosion like that,” Egyptian Sheikh Muhammad Al-Gamei’a, the imam of the

Islamic Cultural Center and Mosque of New York City, told the website

alazhar-gaza.edu, an unofficial Al-Azhar University site. “They are the only

ones capable of planning such acts.”

Propagating a hate for Israel among Palestinian children is nothing new.

WorldNetDaily has reported on programs broadcast by Palestinian television

that demonize Israelis as murderers and encourage young Palestinians to

take up arms against the Jewish state.

Music videos played on

Palestinian television earlier this year suggested Israelis kill both elderly

and infant Palestinians and presented the message to children that throwing

stones at Israelis is honorable.

A recent

Syrian-produced prime-time show aired an age-old anti-Semitic libel on

Hezbollah TV that purports to tell the story of the Zionist movement by

depicting Jews murdering a Christian boy to drain his blood for use in the

special bread eaten at the Jewish Passover feast.
