News the HP Doesn't Cover: Teach the Children to Hate

While the Huffington Post did cover the news of the anti-African riot in Tel Aviv, it missed this latest Palestinian Media Watch released about what Palestinian children are taught:
"Television programs aired on stations owned by the Palestinian Authority are teaching children that both Christians and Jews are enemies of the Palestinian people and "inferior," according to Palestinian Media Watch.

PMW, an Israeli research institute that studies Palestinian society from a broad range of perspectives and monitors the Palestinian Authority through its media and schoolbooks, reported on Wednesday that a young Palestinian girl was asked to recite a poem during a children's program. According to PMW, the show's host said the poem taught children "responsibility and belonging," but it included insults such as, "They [Christians and Jews] are remnants of the crusaders and Khaibar," and are "inferior and smaller, more cowardly and despised."

Both Christians and Jews are reportedly referred to as "the enemies of destiny," and children are encouraged to use violence when confronting them. "Where is my weapon? I found it — a stone. I took it and threw it at the enemies of destiny," the poem says."
