Two days after the large event in eastern city of Van, the radical Islamist associations have organized a night in Istanbul as part of their new series of events "A free al Quds, A world without Israel". As in Van, speakers delivered hateful speeches against Israel, America, Europe, Jews and Christians, and Turkish children recited poems eulogizing shahids, and acted to be killed in drama presentations. Crowds were seen to be emotional and crying during the show. Crowds passionately chanted "Allahu Akbar" when speakers promised eradication of Israel. The video depicts a segment of the children's show and the reading of a poem, "Uncle Imad", that says that Hizbullah leader Imad Mughniya who was killed by cruel oppressors is now with the angels and that the children would like to grow up to be like him and join him, as wells the flags of the U.S., Israel and Britain being trampled on throughout the night when a speaker was saying that eliminating Israel would mean eliminating imperialist America and Europe.
The Islamist websites are already announcing that the next event will take place in Kocaeli, Turkey, on May 30, 2008. These Hizbullah and Hamas propaganda nights and frequent demonstrations that incite to jihad - as evidenced by the readers' comments posted on the websites that express eagerness to join the fight, to go to Palestine and become shahids - take place without any interference on the part of Turkish authorities.
