The Palestinian Media Watch organization, which monitors PA media, often finds cases of incitement to terrorism and hatred of Israel, including incitement targeting young children. Now the group has found that incitement to violence is present even in Israel's capital city, where young children at a school in the neighborhood of Sur Baher are being taught to fight Israel and to seek martyrdom.

Evidence was found in a video broadcast on Hamas TV, which showed young children singing in the Islamic Riyad Al-Aqsa school.


The children sang:
How beautiful are the gardens of Al-Aqsa.
I am a bud atop its hills.
How strong is the army of Al-Aqsa.
I am a soldier, defending its protected area.
How precious is the land of Al-Aqsa.
I shall give up my life for its sake.

The same video showed another group of children singing:
In the way of Allah we proceed aspiring to raise the flag.
May the glory of the religion (Islam) return, and may our blood be shed.

Footage of the singing children was mixed with clips showing children marching with rocks and bullets in hand.

Two Hamas terrorists were recently arrested for planning a missile attack on a soccer game in Jerusalem's Teddy Stadium. The two were residents of Sur Baher.
