Elmo knows where you live...

From Palestine: "Kids' puppet calls for massacre:"

The recently aired episode was dedicated to the importance of trees. The moderator asked "Tarabisho," a talking chick, what he would do if someone, specifically a "little boy," were to chop down his tree. In his squeaky little voice, Tarabisho answered that he would shoot the little boy with an AK-47 automatic rifle, create a massacre and make a riot.
Man, that Tarabisho likes his trees! Although, according to my cursory research, Tarabisho lacks opposable digits, not to mention hands, so I think he’s all talk no martyr here.

In one song on the "Children's Club," very young children are shown singing songs about wanting to become "suicide warriors" and to take up "a machine gun" to direct "violence, anger, anger, anger" against Israelis.

During the show, which featured children aged 4-10, one young boy sings, "When I wander into Jerusalem, I will become a suicide bomber." Afterward, other children stand to call for "Jihad! Holy war to the end against the Zionist enemy."

In another segment, a boy who appears to be no more than 8 or 9 years old chants: "My patience has run out. All Arab existence cries for revenge" against the Jews in Israel.

Yeah, the Palestinian culture is, to use a colloquial term, friggin' messed up (for some truly warped TV—and I’m talking Carson Daly-level warped here—check out these Palestinian TV clips). The glorification of death among the young is no less than a form of child abuse. There can be no lasting peace between Israel and Palestine, no two state solution, until, in the words of Golda Meir, “The Arabs love their children more than they hate the Jews.”

As I am personally a fan of not dying, I don’t think I’m going to hold my breath on this one.

Meanwhile, the Arafish has swum upstream to its natural spawning zone, France.

"The latest tests have found that President Arafat does not suffer from any life-threatening illness and what he has is curable," Nabil Abu Rdainah, a senior aide, was quoted as saying.
You mean they can cure “Evil?” My prescription for a case of the evils is 6 million cc’s of Israeli Hellfire missiles, stat.
