Palestinian Media Watch(PMW), an Israeli research institute which monitors Palestinian media and its messages, released the English translation of the program.
"The occupier stole my land and my grandfathers' land...Where is your sword, Khaled (Arab warrior)?" the girl recites the poem confidently.
"Where is my weapon? I found it - a stone. I took it and threw it at the enemies of destiny. I taught the world that the Muslim in the name of Allah cannot be defeated..."
"Our enemy, Zion, is Satan with a tail," another girl says in a different clip, as the host exclaims, "Bravo, bravo, bravo."
According to PMW, the state governs the media and manipulates it to stir hatred among people towards the West and religions such as Christianity and Judaism. They educate the children since they are young to hate and fight against the enemies of Palestine.
"Since the Palestinian Authority was established it has systematically indoctrinated young and old to hate Israelis and Jews. Using media, education, and cultural structures that it controls, the PA has actively promoted religious hatred, demonization, conspiracy libels, etc," states palwatch.org.
