The Depravity Of Palestinian Culture

It’s hard to find an apt description of how sick, twisted, and depraved the culture of the Palestinians in the disputed territories has become over the years. You could compare them to the Aztecs or call them a death cult, but even that doesn’t adequately describe the warped world these people live in[1].

“Hamas television broadcast a video dramatization on Wednesday in which the four-year-old daughter of female suicide bomber vows to do what her mother has done.

The child is an actress, but the point was clear.

According to Palestinian Media Watch, the child actress, playing the part of a real child named Duha, finds her mother preparing explosives in her bedroom and sings, “Mommy, what are you carrying in your arms instead of me?”

The mother tries to hide the bomb. Later, Duha sees a television news story about her mother’s suicide bomb attack. “Instead of me, you carried a bomb in your hand,” Duha sings. “Only now, I know what was more precious than us.”

Duha asks her mother to tell the Muslim prophet Mohammed that she sends her love — and that she will be following in Mommy’s footsteps. The last image shows Duha finding explosives in her mother’s bedroom drawer.

The video is based on real people. Duha’s mother was Reem Riyashi, who, at the age of 21, blew herself up at the Erez crossing, killing four Israelis. Hamas and the Al Aksa Martyrs Brigades of the Fatah faction claimed responsibility for the 2004 attack.

Palestinian Media Watch Director Itamar Marcus told Cybercast News Service that there have been other programs where young teens express their desire to become martyrs, but he has never seen a child as young as the actress playing Duha serve as an advocate for suicide bombing.”

The tendency is to minimalize this sort of thing because we don’t want to believe that a whole culture can be this sick, “Oh, there are probably just a few people who are like this. Most of the Palestinians don’t have this mentality.”


The Palestinian people chose Hamas to run their government and they supported them in large part because this is what the Palestinians believe in. Suicide bombers are treated by these people like heroes and children are taught that this is what they should aspire to become: a human bomb aimed at innocents.

These people — and I mean most of the people living in the disputed territories — are evil savages. That’s why the Israelis can’t make peace with them, because it’s impossible to make peace with people who think like this. If anything, instead of being treated like bad guys, the Israelis should be lauded as saints for trying to live beside of these people instead driving them away at gunpoint long ago.
