Hello, I'm a little Palestinian girl: Jews are "filth"
These are children. They don't know what they are saying. But the Palestinian Authority does know what they are saying. And they should pay a price for this
There is a moment when one puts aside everything; and when one just pauses to reflect on what can only be described as pure evil. Words like "evil" do not go down well in a relativistic Western world these days.
But, when you see two little girls (aged about 7?) being paraded by the "moderate" Palestinian Authority's TV Channel on their breakfast broadcast saying the following, do you relativists not think that there just might be such a thing as "good" and "evil" in this world?
"Oh Sons of Zion, oh most evil among creations. Oh barbaric monkeys, wretched pigs." Those are the words of one little girl. Here is what her sister said, following on in reciting the same "poem" with the encouragement of the moderator:
"Jerusalem vomits from within it your impurity, Because Jerusalem, you impure ones, is pious, immaculate
And Jerusalem, you who are filth, is clean and pure."
These are children. I don't blame them. They don't know what they are saying. But the Palestinian Authority does know what they are saying. They are using these children to legitimise pure hate, pure evil.
Come, come: let's just laugh it off and ignore it. That's the easy thing to do. Go on; Laugh it off; brush it off. Don't internalise it. Too painful. Too much of a call to action. Well, obviously...
I just have this really controversial, not to say odd, belief that this should not be allowed to stand, that we should put this story on the desk of every politician in the Western world, and that the Palestinian Authority should be called to account.
But that's just silly old me... Right?
