Palestinian Authority TV interview: Palestinian children aspire to death as Martyrs



http://palwatch.org/main.aspx?fi=111&...
This Palestinian Authority TV interview with children shows the extent to which the PA has successfully indoctrinated Palestinian youth to love and seek Shahada (Martyrdom for Allah). One girl views Martyrdom for Allah as preferable to life and asks, "What could be sweeter than going to Paradise?" Another girl prefers Shahada to "peace and full rights," and a third girl says that suicide terror is "natural" and that it is a Palestinian "right." 

Transcript:
Host: "You described Shahada (Martydrdom) as something beautiful. Do you think it is beautiful?"
Walla, age 11: "Shahada (Martyrdom) is a very, very beautiful thing. Everyone yearns for Shahada. What could be sweeter than going to paradise?"
Host: "What is better, peace and full rights for the Palestinian people, or Shahada?"
Walla: "Shahada. I will achieve my rights after becoming a Shahid (Martyr)."
Host: "OK, Yussra, would you agree with that?"
Yussra, age 11: "Of course; Shahada is sweet. We don't want this world, we want the Afterlife. We benefit not from this life, but from the Afterlife."
Host: "Do you actually love death? "
Yussra: "Death is not Shahada."
Host: "No, I mean the absence after death. "
Yussra: "No child loves death. The children of Palestine adopted the concept that Shahada is very good. Every Palestinian child, say someone aged 12, says: O Lord, I would like to become a Shahid."
Host: "We've got a call, Sabrine from Ramallah."
Sabrine (on telephone): "Ayyat al-Akhras was 17 when she blew herself up --
Host: "Sabrine, are you for it or against it?"
Sabrine (on telephone): "Of course I support blowing up, it is our right."
Host: "Sabrine, now, is it natural that Ayyat al-Akhras blows herself up?"
Sabrine (on telephone): "Of course it's natural."

Founded in 1996, Palestinian Media Watch is an Israeli research institute that studies Palestinian society from a broad range of perspectives by monitoring and analyzing the Palestinian Authority through its media and schoolbooks. PMW’s major focus is on the messages that the Palestinian leaders, from the Palestinian Authority, Fatah and Hamas, send to the population through the broad range of institutions and infrastructures they control.

PMW’s many reports and studies on Palestinian summer camps, poetry, schoolbooks, crossword puzzles, religious ideology, women and mothers, children's music videos and the PA’s indoctrination of adults and children to seek Shahada (Martyrdom), have had significant impact on the way the world sees the Palestinians. PMW has presented its findings before members of US Congress and to members of Parliament in numerous countries, including the European Union, Britain, France, Norway, Sweden, Holland, Switzerland, Canada and Australia, and has lectured at universities and conferences world wide.

PMW material has been presented before the Foreign Affairs Committee in the US Congress and the US Senate Appropriations Committee. In addition, PMW reports regularly on how foreign aid is misused by the PA for terror promotion. These reports have led to changes in legislation and funding procedures. Through its bulletins and reports, PMW continues to give the world a precise understanding of the reality of the Palestinian Authority.
