At the end of one of yesterdays posts we showed you, via 3 videos, how Islamic Extremists create suicide bombers and they start indoctrinating them when they are barely old enough to walk.
Commercials and cartoons are how they are taught the hatred and today we see yet another example of this.
GAZA CITY, Gaza Strip — Saraa Barhoum picked at the buttons on her pink bellbottom jeans as she twisted on a chair inside the bustling new Hamas television headquarters. The afternoon light bounced off the sparkly outlines of butterflies on her frilly top, and a colorful hijab framed her 11-year-old face.
Saraa wants to be a doctor. If she can't, the young star of Hamas television's best-known children's show said, she'd be proud to become a martyr. Saraa says little Jewish girls should be forced from their homes in Israel so that Palestinians can return to their land.
Saraa is the sweet face of "Tomorrow's Pioneers," a weekly, hour-long Hamas television children's show best known for bringing the world a militant Mickey Mouse look-alike and then having him killed off by an Israeli interrogator.
With her jarring mix of innocent charm and militant rhetoric, Saraa is at the center of the militant Islamist group's increasingly sophisticated campaign to become the dominant force in Palestinian politics.
"A lot of people in Palestine have died as martyrs, and lots of Palestinians hope to be martyrs," Saraa said of Farfour's demise. "This is one of the ends."
Asked if she hoped one day to be a martyr, Saraa instinctively nodded her head.
"Of course," Saraa said. "It's something to be proud of. Every Palestinian citizen hopes to be a martyr."
Saraa helps deliver similar messages to Palestinian children from a Hamas TV set filled with colorful numbers and pictures of kittens. During the show, Saraa fields calls from Palestinian children who warble songs about Islam, liberating Jerusalem and finding answers in the barrel of a machine gun.
On one show, she cut off a caller who was singing about surrendering herself, presumably to God's will.
"We don't want to surrender," Saraa told the caller. "We want to resist."
This is nothing new.
Yasser Arafat's Message to Children

On June 24, 2007, many bloggers were talking about a 6 yr old Taliban suicide bomber, via Jihad Watch.
"Nato accuses Taliban of using children in suicide missions," by Chiade O'Shea for The Guardian:Children as young as six are being used by the Taliban in increasingly desperate suicide missions, coalition forces in Afghanistan claimed yesterday.
The International Security Assistance Force (ISAF), to which Britain contributes 5,000 troops in southern Afghanistan, revealed that soldiers defused an explosive vest which had been placed on a six-year-old who had been told to attack Afghan army forces in the east of the country.
The boy was spotted after appearing confused at a checkpoint. The vest was defused and no one was hurt.
"They placed explosives on a six-year-old boy and told him to walk up to the Afghan police or army and push the button," said Captain Michael Cormier, the company commander who intercepted the child, in a statement. "Fortunately, the boy did not understand and asked patrolling officers why he had this vest on."
Lieutenant Colonel David Accetta, ISAF eastern regional command spokesman, told the Guardian: "In the past we have not seen the Taliban sink that low, to use children as suicide bombers. The personnel secured the vest to make sure the child was safe."
This is our enemy.
More from Scottish Friends of Israel show us the UN acknowledging the use of children, condemning it, yet they do nothing about it.
Breitbart, July 15, 2007:
Afghan President Hamid Karzai has called child suicide bombers a "fearful and terrifying truth".
It came after he freed a 14-year-old Pakistani boy arrested in eastern Afghanistan the night before he planned to kill a provincial governor.
Rafiqullah, who goes by one name, told reporters that while attending a madrassa, or religious school, in Pakistan he and two other boys were separated from the rest of the students and trained to drive a car and made to watch videos of suicide bombers carrying out attacks.
The teenager said he walked across the Pakistan-Afghanistan border into Khost province, where a man named Abdul Aziz gave him a vest full of explosives. Rafiqullah said he told Aziz he was afraid of carrying out a suicide bombing, and Aziz pointed a gun at him and threatened to kill him if he did not.
Rafiqullah's intended target was the governor of Khost province.
"Today we are faced with a fearful and terrifying truth, and that truth is the sending of a Muslim child to carry out a suicide attack," Karzai told reporters at the presidential palace.
Do we understand the depth of evilness of these people yet?
March 31, 2007:
March 31, 2007 -- WASHINGTON - A Pentagon general said yesterday suicide attacks and car bombings soared 30 percent since the start of a security crackdown in Iraq last month - and that insurgents had used a child in a second suicide attack last week.
Maj. Gen. Michael Barbero, deputy director for regional operations in the Joint Staff at the Pentagon, also characterized the rising use of chlorine bombs in Iraq as "poison gas attacks."
According to the general, a teenage boy was used in a suicide bombing in Haditha on March 21.
Barbero said Iraqi police were pursuing a suspicious vehicle.
As the police drove past a 12- to 14-year-old boy on a bicycle, a bomb in the teenager's backpack detonated, killing him instantly, he said.
How long will people deny the nature of our enemy?
How about those that continue to "blame Bush"?
They completely close their eyes to the Fourteen Centuries of Jihad. I serious doubt Bush is THAT old.
The men and women that are suicide bombers don't look or act insane. Quite a few of these suicide bombers have simply been taught since childhood that to die for Allah and to kill in Allah's name and to become a martyr is the right thing to do, it is glorious.

This cycle must end by whatever means is necessary to end it.
