Documents have been uncovered just in recent days describing how al-Qaida recruits children as young as 14 for suicide missions, and now a report has been released revealing Muslims using television to indoctrinate even toddlers and school-age children into a culture of death.

The new report comes from the Middle East Media Research Institute, which monitors media in the Middle East, translating reports and offers a commentary perspective on the meanings.

Its new report, released today, is about a recent broadcast to children on Egypt’s Al-Khaleejiyah Television. The organization has posted a video clip of the comments.

According to MEMRI’s excerpts of the “Ammo Alaa” children’s show, which aired on Dec. 29, 2010, the host said, “Let’s see how we should answer the disgusting Jews, who say that Jerusalem belongs to them. What proof do we have that Jerusalem is Islamic? We tell our friends that … Am I making you fall asleep, Mr. Sa’d, or what? Wake up Sa’d … Have a carrot … First of all, we tell the Jews that the Arabs lived in the blessed city of Jerusalem, more than 2,000 years before the first Jew settled in there.”

His monologue continues, “Two thousand is a very big number. Not one year, not two, not 10, not 100 – 2,000 years. That’s the first thing. We tell them that the Arabs lived in Jerusalem 2,000 years before the first Jew set foot in it. Okay? Okay!”

Then he tells his audience Jews are teaching “disgusting” practices and advocating for the deaths of Muslims.

“The disgusting Jews are getting ready, and they let their little children do many disgusting things, so that they will hate Islam, and kill all our Muslim brothers there,” he said. “My advice to you is to place Jerusalem inside our hearts, learn and be smart. When we take exams, we must kill ourselves memorizing. We must do well and be very good Muslims, so we can use our knowledge to liberate Jerusalem.”

He said, “Scientists know how to make weapons and things that serve Islam. They can make the Muslims have a strong state, and make a nuclear bomb and an atom bomb, and all those things that make [the Jews] stronger than us.”

It was just days earlier when a federal document obtained by Judicial Watch revealed how al-Qaida actively recruits children to be suicide bombers by having its loyalists hang out at mosques and Islamic schools and offering books, flyers and magazines and occasionally money.

“Juveniles as young as 14 years of age are used for martyrdom operations,” stated the document, obtained by Judicial Watch under a Freedom of Information Act request. “Juveniles are more willing to martyr themselves due to their lack of reasoning on taking innocent lives.”

The documents, from the Department of Defense’s Defense Intelligence Agency, came in response to a request for records relating to children as intended targets of terrorism and the terror threat against children.

A letter from Paul Jacobsmeyer, chief of the Office of Freedom of Information for the DoD, explained that other information that was redacted “concerns intelligence activities (including covert action), intelligence sources or methods, or cryptology.”

“Extremist groups in Saudi Arabia and Yemen used religion as the main mechanism for recruiting juveniles,” the first report said. “These groups would take juveniles to mosques to listen to religious lectures. More time was spent with the youths who appeared susceptible to the ideology of the extremist group.”

Individuals were identified by al-Qaida recruiters at “street soccer games, schools, colleges and mosques.”

The report continued, “Juveniles are also solicited for recruitment after they buy extremist videos at local markets.”

Young people who get into trouble also are prime candidates, it said.

“The extremist groups have connections with, or are members of, local law enforcement. … These groups will arrest targeted youths for their illegal activities. Once the youths are jailed for a few days, a member of the extremist group would visit the youths. The extremist member would offer to help the youths get out of jail and clean up their lives if they joined the group.”

Kids also were asked to recruit their friends, the report said.

“The method [of recruitment] that generates the most responses from recruits is showing videos of Muslims fighting jihad in Bosnia, Chechnya or Afghanistan.”

While juvenile males make up an estimated 20 percent of al-Qaida, the juvenile females “become brides for extremist members,” the report said.

WND previously reported when Islamic kids’ cartoons praised by President Obama drew a terse warning.


New Shariah-compliant Islamic cartoon “superhero”

It was the series of “superhero” cartoons promoting the tenets of Islam under the title “The 99” – which had been praised by President Obama.

“These are not the types of heroes you want your children to have,” Ted Baehr, publisher of MOVIEGUIDE,” told WND. “These heroes, at their core, because they represent values contrary to humanity, at the core these heroes are more villain than hero.”

Reports by Family Security Matters and others already have circulated about the plans by The Hub, formerly Discovery Kids, to produce the series featuring characters portraying the 99 attributes of Allah.

The New York Post ran a column describing plans for the Shariah-compliant Muslim superheroes – “including one who fights crime hidden head-to-toe by a burqa.”

“These Islamic butt-kickers are ready to bring truth, justice and indoctrination to impressionable Western minds,” the report said.

That’s the problem, according to Baehr, with the Middle East cartoon that reportedly is being picked up and scheduled for a launch by Hasbro toys and Discovery Communications.

“Curiously (or not so curiously considering his track record), President Obama, who was raised as a Muslim by his stepfather in Indonesia but supposedly converted to Christianity, praised this work created by Kuwaiti psychologist Naif al-Mutawa, saying at an April meeting with Arab entrepreneurs, ‘His superheroes embody the teachings of the tolerance of Islam.'”

Adrian Morgan of Family Security Matters, a think tank, wondered, “Are we going to see a**-kicking Christian superhero nuns called Faith, Hope and Charity … sending Satan into Hell? It’s doubtful!”

WND also previously has reported the content of Islamic children’s TV programs.


Kids play at “jihad” in new Hamas television presentation

For example, the terror group Hamas’ Al-Aqsa Television has “martyred” a children’s bunny character named Assud and knocked off a Mickey Mouse-lookalike for the cause of jihad.

Also in a report documented by the Middle East Media Research Institute, an Al-Aqsa program features a children’s choir that opens with: “Dad, we put on our new clothes. Give us our pocket money. Today is a holiday. … Me, my brother, and the neighborhood kids want to arm ourselves with guns.”

MEMRI explained that the message is an excerpt of a holiday video aired on Hamas Al-Aqsa Television called “Holiday Gun.”

According to MEMRI, the lyrics continue with the father singing:

“My children, I’m worried about you.

“This toy might harm your eyes.

“My children, I’m worried about you.

“This toy might harm your eyes.

“Think about another toy.

“You are the apple of my eye, may Allah protect you.”

And the children return:

“Dad, we are a steadfast people.

“These guns need hands to carry them.

“Dad, we are a steadfast people.

“These guns need hands to carry them.

“Today we play, tomorrow we will wage Jihad.

“How joyous my heart will be on the Day of Return.”
