Following is an excerpt from an address in English delivered by a Palestinian child Walla Khadher Al-As'ad, which aired on Al-Aqsa TV on March 10, 2008:

Wallah Khadher Al-As'ad: Welcome, everybody, to our program that talks about the Islamic uniform, which is the hijab. The hijab has very sacred and good traits, which are the following: One – keeping honor and dignity. Two – it frees the hearts and psyches from false romantic feelings. Three – stopping the greed and the bad thoughts of people and satans. Four – it's a sign of a good woman. Five – keeping its [unintelligible]. Six – the hijab makes a good relationship with Allah, and makes the human enter Paradise.

My Muslim sisters, I would like to say that a lot of films would seem to be destroying the hijab. So, my sister, you should be careful with these destroying voices, because they fight Islam, and they are against its progress. So my sister, you must keep your hijab to enter Paradise.

My sisters in Europe, in America, in the whole world, I would like to advise you that your hijab protects you from this false freedom, and in fact, [Westerners] don't understand anything except destroying their humanity, and satisfying their animal instincts. At last, let me say that the hijab is the best protection for any girl in the world. So there are a lot of [women] all over the world committed to Islam because of the hijab.

Thank you so much for being with us. This was presented by Walla Khadher Al-As'ad.
