Palestinian-Jordanian Preschool Girl Holds Knife, Says: "I Want to Stab a Jew"

A video recently posted on Facebook shows a little girl, called Rahf, holding a large knife and declaring: "I want to stab a Jew." Her father, Abdulhaleem Abuesha, a teacher in the Madaba refugee camp in Jordan, encourages her, saying: "Oh, you're so strong!" The video was posted on Abuesha's Facebook account on October 16. His account also features a picture of a little boy – presumably his son - holding a large knife and smiling at the camera.

Following are excerpts:

Rahf, Palestinian-Jordanian girl, holding a chef's knife: I want to stab a Jew.

Adult in background: Why do you want to stab the Jew?

Rahf: Because he stole our land.

Adult in background: They stole our land. With what do you want to stab them?

Rahf: With a knife.

Adult in background: Oh, you're so strong! Allah willing, my dear.
