“Shahada”

08.08.03

Palestinian Media Watch has published a report, entitled “Ask For Death”, on the methods used within the Palestinian Authority to glorify suicide among children and encourage them to achieve death through “Shahada” (via Israpundit:

“Ask for death” is the message that the Palestinian Authority [PA] has been conveying to its children since the start of violence in October 2000. In June 2002, two articulate 11-year-old girls were interviewed in the studio of official Palestinian Authority TV. Among other topics, they spoke of their personal yearning to achieve death through Shahada — Death for Allah — and of a similar desire they said exists in “every Palestinian child.” It is striking that their desire for death was expressed as a personal goal, not related to the conflict with Israel. Having been convinced that dying for Allah is preferable to life, their goal in living is not to experience a good life, but to achieve the proper death — Shahada

There’s a video that goes along with it, and it’s scary as anything. Whoever said that the goal of all people is for their children to live happy, productive, secure lives should spend a few minutes looking at this.
