In an episode of the "Pioneers of Tomorrow" children's show broadcast from Gaza by Hamas, giant bee Nahoul encourages a boy from Jenin to beat up his Jewish neighbors. "If his neighbors are Jewish or Zionist, that goes without saying," says Rawan, the girl host. The show aired on Al-Aqsa TV on May 2, 2014.
Following are excerpts:
Giant bee Nahoul (to boy caller): My friend Qays, do you have Jews over there [in Jenin]?
Qays: Not now.
Nahoul: I heard that they go over there every day.
Qays: Yes, but they aren’t here now.
Nahoul: Listen, my friend, make a fist, like this...
Qays: They come to the refugee camp.
Nahoul: Well, next time they come, punch them. Turn their faces into tomatoes.
Qays: In order to liberate Palestine...
Nahoul: Allah willing.
Nahoul (talking to girl TV host Rawan) : Rawan, I want to tell him to pick up a stone, and when the Jews come, to take it and throw it.
Rawan: That’s right, if the neighbors are Jewish...
Nahoul: He should beat them up.
Rawan: If his neighbors are Jewish or Zionist, that goes without saying.
Rawan (to Tulin, a little girl in the studio) : Tulin, why do you want to become a policewoman? Like who?
Tulin: Like my uncle.
Rawan: Who is your uncle?
Tulin: His name is Ahmad.
Rawan: He’s a policeman? What do the police do?
Nahoul: They catch thieves and troublemakers.
Rawan: And they shoot Jews, right?
Rawan: You want to be like him? Allah willing, when you grow up.
Tulin: I will shoot the Jews.
Rawan: All of them?
