You’ve got to be taught To hate and fear,
You’ve got to be taught From year to year,
It’s got to be drummed In your dear little ear
You’ve got to be carefully taught.
Oscar Hammerstein II South Pacific
In some ways the media in the Arab world is similar to the mainstream media in the US, both promote the policies of their leadership. The differences are that in the US only the policies of progressives are pushed. While in the Arab world they always push the polices of the despot in power. Unlike here in the US where their love of the Democrats is purely voluntary, the Arab media has no choice as they are owned and run by the ruling party.
Even in the areas controlled by the supposedly moderate Palestinian Authority, run by the supposedly moderate Fatah party, children are taught to the venom of hatred. And that hatred is not simply directed at Israelis but all Christians and all Jews. Take a look at this example clipped and translated by Palestinian Media Watch:
PA TV host: “You are going to recite a poem, which also teaches us responsibility and belonging.”
“… The occupier stole my land and my grandfathers’ land…
Where is your sword, Khaled (Arab warrior)?
Where is your courage, Saladin (Muslim conqueror)?
But no one answered me.
Where is my weapon? I found it – a stone. I took it and threw it at the enemies of destiny. I taught the world that the Muslim in the name of Allah cannot be defeated…
They challenge us with the White House, and we challenge them with the [Islamic] awakening and the Kaaba [in Mecca]. They aren’t stronger than Khosrau and Caesar (rulers of Persian and Byzantine Empires).
They [Christians and Jews] are inferior and smaller, more cowardly and despised. They are remnants of the [Christian] crusaders and Khaibar (i.e., Jewish village destroyed by Muslims in 629)…
Oh Muslims of the world: Awaken, you have slept too long.
Your fathers and your sons are being massacred, your Al-Aqsa [Mosque] is defiled and destroyed.”
Host: “Bravo! Applause for our friend Lara.”
There will never be peace as long as the Palestinians teach their children hatred.
