In a graduation ceremony at the Al-Hoda Islamic Kindergarten in Gaza, pre-schoolers, wearing uniforms and carrying mock guns and posters of Islamic Jihad leaders, staged a display of terror attacks against Israelis. The footage, which was posted on the kindergarten's YouTube channel on May 29, includes Hebrew lyrics threatening Israelis with missiles and terror attacks and mocking IDF soldier Oron Shaul, whose body has been held by Hamas since 2014. The graduating class is called "Pioneers of Tomorrow."

The ceremony is held annually at the Al-Hoda kindergarten, which is affiliated with the Islamic Jihad. Omar Fora, the head of the kindergarten association and a leader of the Islamic Jihad, delivered an address, and Islamic cleric Taher Al-Lulu slammed Saudi Arabia for "standing behind Israel and America."


Singer (in Hebrew): "Oh, for my Zionist enemy I have prepared all kinds of missiles, which will reach him where he lives. He will die if he does not leave my country immediately. I will make him drink from the cups of death – oh, what a bitter drink! You have reached Gaza, you have reached your death. If you haven’t been killed yet, captivity is all yours. Fida'i... Prepare to shoot. Oh Zionist, a missile will reach you where you live. You are dead, whether you are asleep or awake at home, or on a mountaintop. I will make you drink from the cup of death – what a bitter taste! You have reached Gaza, you have reached your death. If you haven't been killed yet, I will tear you to pieces. Shoot accurately... You will hit the Kirya [IDF base in Tel Aviv]. Whether Nahal Brigade or Golani Brigade, whoever you may be, I will surprise you real good until you will beg for your life. I will eat you without salt, Zionist, because you are most tasty this way. Yes, you, I'm talking to you: I have cooked death for you. You have sinned, made a mistake, so taste your bitter fate."




Audience: "Happy birthday to you. Happy birthday to you. Happy birthday, dear Oron. Happy birthday to you."




The children perform a choreographed routine featuring mock weapons and riot shields as well as basic military concepts such as moving in formation, reloading a weapon, and dropping down on the ground. At one point a small drone can also be seen flying over the stage.




Taher Al-Lulu: "You may have heard a few days ago how they describe Jihad and resistance. They describe the murabiteen on the land of the Prophet's ascent to the heavens as terrorists. As for the millions and billions [of dollars] – they are given [by KSA] to the U.S., the number one criminal, which supports Israel.




"We are satisfied with the company of Allah, and we do not want millions and billions [of dollars] from the traitors and hypocrites who stand behind Israel and America."
