An Egyptian Islamic cleric, Sheik Muhammad Nassar, working for the state ministry of religious endowment has used a children’s television program to encourage Muslim children to strive for holy war.
During the program, made available by the Arabic translation service MEMRI , the cleric told a story about Muslim children in history keen to sacrifice themselves and kill infidels for the cause of Islam.
On a previous broadcast on Egyptian television in 2002, a three and a half year-old girl was asked to describe Jews.
They are apes and pigs… our God said so
was her reply. The girl’s answer was enthusiastically received by the program’s host.
Allah be praised. May our God bless her. No one could wish for a more devout girl. May God bless her and her parents.
the host said.
