A talking animal on a Palestinian children’s television show has advocated starting a massacre with AK-47 firearms.
The violent suggestion came in response to a question from a child moderator on the program, which runs on official Palestinian TV, reported Palestinian Media Watch.
The recently aired episode was dedicated to the importance of trees. The moderator asked “Tarabisho,” a talking chick, what he would do if someone, specifically a “little boy,” were to chop down his tree. In his squeaky little voice, Tarabisho answered that he would shoot the little boy with an AK-47 automatic rifle, create a massacre and make a riot.
The following is the full text of the translated dialogue between the child moderator and Tarabisho:
Girl: If a boy comes in front of your house where a tree is planted, and cuts it down, what would you do?
Talking chick: I have two trees in front of my house.
Girl: If a little boy cuts them down, what will you do to him?
Talking chick: What I’ll do to him? I’ll fight him and make a big riot. I’ll call the whole world and make a riot. I’ll bring AK-47s and the whole world. I’ll commit a massacre in front of the house.
Palestinian Media Watch, which features a video of the exchange, reported the moderator twice checked her notes while asking the questions, suggesting this was not a spontaneous discussion but was a deliberate educational message planned by the writers and producers of the show.
The program aired shortly after the Israeli army leveled many of the trees used by Palestinian terrorists in Gaza to hide rocket launchers.
As WorldNetDaily reported, Palestinian Authority television produced a “Sesame Street”-like children’s program called the “Children’s Club” – complete with puppet shows, songs, Mickey Mouse and other characters – focused on inculcating intense hatred of Jews and a passion for engaging in and celebrating violence against them in a perpetual “jihad” until the day the Israeli flags come down from above “Palestinian land” and the Palestinian flag is raised.
In one song on the “Children’s Club,” very young children are shown singing songs about wanting to become “suicide warriors” and to take up “a machine gun” to direct “violence, anger, anger, anger” against Israelis.
During the show, which featured children aged 4-10, one young boy sings, “When I wander into Jerusalem, I will become a suicide bomber.” Afterward, other children stand to call for “Jihad! Holy war to the end against the Zionist enemy.”
In another segment, a boy who appears to be no more than 8 or 9 years old chants: “My patience has run out. All Arab existence cries for revenge” against the Jews in Israel.
Last week, WND reported a music video urging children to become suicide bombers and which was removed from circulation last year returned to official Palestinian television.
The words in the music video are sung by a woman vocalist wearing an army uniform, and the visuals include children in frenzied war dances, interspersed between scenes of children participating in violence incombat zones, explained PMW.
