Note the map of all of Israel
Anyone who thinks settlements are the stumbling block is naive, indeed. The Palestinian teachers are indoctrinating their kids that all of Israel is theirs. How are they going to switch gears some day, and tell their kids, "Well, now there's a peace deal, so all those cities like Tel Aviv which we promised you could live in, are off limits!" The answer is, they are not going to switch gears. They will tell their kids, "We're getting The West Bank now, and we will use that as a steppingstone to conquer all of Israel!" That is called preparing another generation for war, not peace. And our tax dollars help fund it. Barf!

Why blame them? Blame Israel for letting this happen!
I really don't understand the disgust of people watching this "reality" documentary. Fact is, ever since Israel has signed Peace accords they have let this hateful propaganda be taught not just in the PA, but in Israel proper! The leftist Education Ministers of previous Israeli administrations help print Arab textbooks for Israeli Arabs believe in the Nakba. Israel was silent, just as they are silent about the PA's Constitution which calls for the destruction of the State of Israel and the murder of Jews. Why?

These schools are teaching future terrorists. It's hate school. They teach only hate.

Activism is futile and Israel will be lost, unless ....
Israel returns to (Deut.chapter 28.) its pact and covenant with G-d. The promise of living in Israel is part of the covenant of Torah. One can ONLY pocess Israel through faith and obedience to the covenant. Outside of Torah there is no Israel. Secular Israelis could have chosen Cyprus or Uganda as a homeland, but when talking speicifically about Israel, you cannot pocess it outside of Torah and Emuna. A secular atheist CANNOT pocess Israel. He might be able to conquer it, but he will lose it eventually, since the promise to live in peace in Eretz Israel is related to Torah and emuna. The enemies and obstacles which G-d has put in the way to pocess and live in Israel, can only be removed through emuna/Torah. Each time Israel goes further from Torah the enemies and obstacles become stronger and bigger. These are only wakeup calls from HaShem for Israel to return to its convenant with G-d. Everytime Israel fails to respond to the call and warnings of HaShem, the calls get louder and louder. First came the stones, then came the knives and guns, then came the suicide bombers, then came the missiles and now they are threatening with chemical weapons and muclear arms ...... only the voice of HaShem getting louder and louder. Once Israel makes teshuva and returns to its pact and covenant with G-d, the enemies will shrink and the obstacles will be removed. If any piece of land can be defended pocessed and kept by means of arms and activism, Eretz Israel can only be pocessed and kept through emuna, bitachon and Mitzvot. “This is the word of the Lord to ... ‘Not by might nor by power, but by my Spirit,’ says the Lord Almighty. (Zechariah 4:5-7)

There will be no peace for Israel from the Palestinians.There will not be an Israeli country living peacefully beside a Palestinian country because Palestinians obviously do not want peace. Any so called peace treaty with the Palestinians will be a futile attempt on the part of any Israeli government.

I agree 100% with you. The PA demography ,ignorance and fanaticism will make things even worse.

The US must not continue to fund these programs
It is an outrage that the US is funding these schools that are perpetuating hate and lies, teaching young children such hateful propaganda. How can we stop this?

If I am not for myself, who will be for me? (Hillel)
Every page these children learn from is printed using Israeli-supplied ink and paper. Every microphone and TV show that amplifies these words of hate are using power generated in Israel. If we don't stop this, if we are not for ourselves, who will be for us?

Showing to the wrong people
As powerful as this is, we who are watching it on Aish,
know about this hateful propaganda!
The challenge is to get this viewed by the "right" people.

So sad to see these sweet children being brainwashed
It's a shame that the Palestinians cannot own up to the fact that they left their homes on the advice of their Arab brothers, who trying to destroy the Jewish state, said they would consider any Arab within the state to be an enemy. Even if they believed their own propaganda (that the Israelis threw them out), if the PA had any responsible leadership, they would look for a way to make things better for their people, instead of denying Israeli legitimacy and rooting for war.The Palestinian Authority never lost an oppurtunity to lose an oppurtunity.(Abba Eben)
