Palestinian Puppet Show Teaches Kids: Replace Cigarettes With Machine Guns
If the children are our future, this story suggests a dark one for the Palestinians.
Imagine if the U.S. Surgeon General were to launch the following campaign to combat the scourge of youth smoking. Creating an “educational” puppet show for children and have the puppets teach the kids that smoking is not cool, but assault weapons are super-cool.
That’s pretty much what happened in East Jerusalem, according to the Israeli research institute Palestinian Media Watch:
A Palestinian NGO [non-governmental organization], the Burj Luq-Luq Social Center Society organization, performed a puppet show for children in East Jerusalem to promote non-smoking. The educational message delivered by the puppets instructed children to replace cigarettes with machine guns:
Puppet: “I, and many other youth like me, think that cigarettes will help us to grow, to turn into men. Jerusalem doesn’t need men who hold cigarettes. It needs men who hold machine guns, not cigarettes.”
Because apparently no health lesson would be complete without some anti-Semitic incitement to violence:
In addition to teaching children not to smoke, the puppet show glorified death and violence and educated children to see Jews as “enemies” who kill the Palestinian youth of Jerusalem:
Puppet: “I wanted to stand before the audience and sing to Jerusalem, which is being kept from us. Jerusalem, whose youth are being killed by the Jews, to sing and to say:
Jerusalem, we are coming, Jerusalem, the time of death has arrived.
Jerusalem, we will not surrender to the enemies or be humiliated.”
Palestinian Media Watch reports that “the Burj Luq-Luq Social Center Society is or has been supported by various branches of the UN, including UNICEF and UNESCO, in addition to international donors,” including the governments of France and Switzerland.
As reported by The Blaze in December, this is not the first case Western aid money has been used by the Palestinians to promote violence. As discovered by Palestinian Media Watch, the children’s magazine Zayzafuna published a fictional submission by a teenage girl who described Hitler’s actions as positive, because he killed Jews to help the world. The magazine is funded by the Palestinian Authority, and the Authority receives U.S. taxpayer dollars. UNESCO stopped funding the magazine after the Hitler article was publicized overseas.
This and other discoveries are detailed in the book “Deception: Betraying the Peace Process” by Itamar Marcus and Nan Jacques Zilberdik of Palestinian Media Watch who combed through Palestinian television, newspaper and magazine items looking for signs the Palestinian Authority is influencing public opinion toward peace with Israel but instead found a multitude of terror-glorifying messages including “streets, schools, sporting events and more [named] after Palestinian terrorists who have killed hundreds of Israeli civilians.”
With suicide bombers presented as role models, encouraging Palestinian youths to violently cut their own lives short, the question might be raised: why bother with the anti-smoking campaign?
