Two children have made an appearance on Hamas Television’s children’s show called “Liberate” to exhort a liberation of the Al-Aqsa Mosque on the Temple Mount in Jerusalem, and to promise to “wipe out” Zionists.

The new video captured from Hamas Television is being made available by the Middle East Media Research Institute, which monitors and publicizes media reports throughout the Middle East.

MEMRI also has a web page that is devoted to Al-Aqsa television clips.



Young boy on Hamas television tells audience how to “rescue” the Al-Aqsa Mosque “from the shackles of the Zionist entity.”

The boy, in the Dec. 3, 2007, appearance, launches the message:

“My beloved brothers, as you know, today the Al-Aqsa Mosque is crying out: ‘Where are the people of the frontline, the Palestinian people?’ Yes, my dear brothers, that is the Al-Aqsa Mosque. The subject of our lesson today is Jerusalem, to where your Prophet made his nocturnal journey – the Al-Aqsa Mosque,” he says.

“Yes, my beloved brothers, as you know today, and as you knew yesterday and the day before, the Al-Aqsa Mosque has fallen into oppressing and malicious hands, the hands of those who know nothing but injustice. But let me tell you how the Al-Aqsa Mosque will be returned, how we shall rescue it from the shackles of the occupation, from the shackles of the Zionist entity.

“Will it be through conferences? No, not through conferences, but by means of force, because the Zionist entity, your enemy, the enemy of Allah, the enemy of Islam, knows nothing but injustice and the killing of Palestinians, the persevering people on the frontline. Indeed, the [mosque] will be returned only by means of force,” he says.

He continues to warn about “what the Zionist enemy has done,” lumping Israel and America together.

“But is it too late? No, it is not too late. If we all unite, the Al-Aqsa Mosque will not remain in the hands of the Zionist enemy, it will not remain in the hands of your enemy, despite all their conspiracies against the Palestinian people…” the boy says.

The girl then takes over, saying, “To Al-Aqsa, to Al-Aqsa – we shall unite our ranks. We will wipe out the people of Zion, and will not leave a single one of them.”



Young girl on Hamas television promises with “wipe out” the people of Zion.

The mosque has been the subject of discussion in recent weeks, as President Bush’s Annapolis summit was held with the intention of getting a focus on the issues that remain to be negotiated for a two-state Middle East, a goal he has set to reach before his second term expires in a little more than a year.

Jerusalem and the Temple Mount have been included in those talks, and Palestinian leaders have told WND Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert has expressed a willingness to give up control of the Temple Mount.

That is the location of the Al-Aqsa Mosque, which was built on the location where the first and second Jewish temples, once housing the Holy of Holies and the Ark of the Covenant, stood.

The Temple Mount currently is under Israeli control, but both Jews and Christians are barred from praying there. It was opened to the general public until 2000, when Palestinians launched an intifada by throwing stones at Jewish worshipers.

The Israeli government closed the Mount to non-Muslims, but reopened it in 2003. The mosque, however, falls under control of the Waqf, which monitors and enforces its rules against visitors.

The mosque was built around A.D. 709.
