Hate Music Video on PA TV: Israeli Soldiers Shoot at Kids

Music videos around the world are intended for children's entertainment. But the Palestinian Authority (PA) uses music videos as a tool to promote hatred and violence among Palestinian children. In recent months, PA TV has increased the frequency of hate broadcasting aimed at children.

One example of this escalation is the repeated broadcast this month of a 30-second music video depicting Israeli soldiers as cold-blooded murderers.

In this fictitious scene, children are seen playing soccer, while actors portraying Israeli soldiers wearing yarmulkes (skullcaps) watch them from the side. Suddenly one of the soldiers moves over to the children and, after attempting to steal the ball, hits one of the children. The other children turn against the soldier and chase him away. He then grabs his automatic rifle, takes careful aim and fires at the children.
Other fictitious PA hate videos directed at children include:

- Scenes of children playing soccer when the ball explodes in their faces;

- A girl on a swing who turns into a burning inferno;

- Soldiers throwing an old man to the ground and then shooting him in the head;

- A blind infant carried by his mother; when she is murdered by Israeli soldiers, they fall to the ground together;

- and many others.

The result of all this hate indoctrination is a generation of Palestinian children who have been convinced by the PA leadership that Israel is intentionally murdering civilians, especially children. The PA is creating for its children a moral equivalence between PA terror, which deliberately targets civilians in buses and cafes, and Israel's defensive war, in which some civilians have been inadvertently killed. This hate promotion is creating a generation of children who are filled with hatred for Israelis, and who see killing Israelis as legitimate because they are convinced that Israel is also targeting civilians.

The more this hate promotion continues, the more entrenched the Palestinian children's hatred becomes, and the bleaker the prospects for peace in the next generation.
