"We Must Arise in Order to Take Revenge Upon the Criminal Jews, the Occupying Zionists"
Nahoul, a giant bee: "My friends, Al-Aqsa awaits you. My dears, Al-Aqsa is very sad. My friends, Al-Aqsa is being held prisoner and is besieged by the criminal murderers of children. We must arise in order to take revenge upon the criminal Jews, the occupying Zionists. We must liberate Al-Aqsa. Do you know how we can liberate it and get hold of its key, just like it was liberated by Saladin?"
Child host Saraa: "How, Nahoul?"
Nahoul: "How? By means of morning prayers, blood, sacrifice, and pain, by means of martyrs, and with endurance. This is the key. I am so sad, Saraa."
"Allah Willing, We Will Regain the Al-Aqsa Mosque, and Cleanse it of the Impurity of the Zionists"
Saraa: "Don't be sad, Nahoul. I, you, the dear children, even the older ones – the generation of the 'Pioneers of Tomorrow'... Allah willing, we will regain the Al-Aqsa Mosque, and cleanse it of the impurity of the Zionists."
Nahoul: "Allah willing."
Saraa: "On a different subject, Nahoul, let's see what you got up to this week."
Nahoul: "Nothing, Saraa."
Saraa: "Let's see for ourselves."
Nahoul enters the cats' cage at the Gaza Zoo.
Nahoul: "Meow! Meow! I'm opening the door and going in. I opened the door and entered the cage, and the guy didn't see me. I am now standing in the cats' cage. The cats here are asleep – the poor, wretched, imprisoned cats. I feel like abusing them. This cat is asleep. I feel like attacking it."
Nahoul picks up cat by its tail.
"I should get out of here before the guy comes, and I get scolded."
Nahoul throws stones and roars at the lions in their cage.
Saraa: "What have you done, Nahoul? Haven't you heard of the hadith of the Prophet..."
Nahoul: "No, Saraa, I haven't heard."
Saraa: "He said that a woman went to Hell because she locked up a cat, without feeding it or letting it eat on its own, Nahoul. Therefore, Allah punished her and sent her to Hell. If you keep doing this, you will have the same fate, Nahoul."
