Teaching Tolerance 2  

Steven Stalinsky, the executive director of MEMRI provides further evidence of the "tolerance" taught to the children of Palestine:

The most senior Palestinian Authority religious figure, Mufti Sheikh Ikrimeh Sabri, is a vocal proponent of sending children on terrorist attacks. In an interview with the Egyptian paper Al-Ahram Al-Arabi, he explained his thoughts on child martyrs, as well as the joy of their mothers: "I feel the martyr is lucky because the angels usher him to his wedding in heaven. I feel the earth moves under the occupiers' feet... There is no doubt that a child [martyr] suggests that the new generation will carry on the mission with determination. The younger the martyr — the greater and the more I respect him... They [mothers of martyrs] willingly sacrifice their offspring for the sake of freedom. It is a great display of the power of belief. The mother is participating in the great reward of the jihad to liberate Al-Aqsa... I talked to a young man... [who] said: '... I want to marry the black-eyed [beautiful] women of heaven.' The next day he became a martyr. I am sure his mother was filled with joy about his heavenly marriage. Such a son must have such a mother."

Momma, don't let your babies grow up to be suicide bombers.....

Sadly, children reared in this manner never have the opportunity to grow up.

Meanwhile, the new leader of Hamas, Abdel Azziz Rantisi, a pediatrician by education, sends more children to the slaughter:

"The Israeli army said it arrested a 12-year-old Palestinian boy wearing a suicide belt at a checkpoint near the northern West Bank city of Nablus today."

A pediatrician? There, there, little Johnny. Take two suicide belts and martyr yourself in the morning.
