HAMAS BUNNY TEACHES ON DANISH CARTOONS AND MARTYDOM
In the February 22, 2008 episode of the Hamas children's show"The Pioneers of Tomorrow," on Al-Aqsa TV, program host Saraa Barhoum and bunny character Assud urge viewers to boycott Danish products and to avenge the insult of the Muhammad cartoons reprinted by Danish newspapers . . . and discuss their own"martyrdom."
Child host Saraa Barhoum:"Amani, you've seen the kind of attack that the West launched against the Prophet Muhammad. What do you have to say on behalf of the Prophet Muhammad?"
Amani, by phone:"In the name of Allah, the Merciful, the Compassionate, I say to those cowardly infidels..."
Assud the Bunny :"Those criminals..."
Amani:"Yes, those criminals... You mock our Prophet Muhammad, but look, my beloved Prophet Muhammad, how Allah responded to them: 'Allah shall pay them back for their mockery, and He leaves them alone in their excess, blindly wandering on.' My beloved Messenger of Allah, they mocked you with their drawings, because they do not know the mercy in your heart. My beloved Muhammad, if they had known the mercy in your heart, they would not have done this to you. Allah knows that we love you, and that we will redeem you with our souls, our blood, and our hearts." [...]
Assud:"Are you boycotting Israeli and Danish products?"
Amani:"Yes, Assud. I am." . . .
Saraa:"How did these Danes have the audacity to affront the Messenger of Allah? Do you have an answer to that, Assud?"
Assud:"No, I don't. Maybe because the Arabs and Muslims keep silent, [the Danes] humiliated them and did these things to them."
"Allah Willing, the Soldiers of 'The Pioneers of Tomorrow' Will Redeem the Prophet Muhammad with All That They Possess – Even with Their Blood"..."We Will Kill Them"
Saraa:"That's one reason, but there is an even more important reason, Assud."
Assud:"I have no idea."
Saraa:"It's because the West has seen that we've moved away from the religion of Allah, and from the Sunna of our Prophet Muhammad. They have also seen that we have forsaken the religion of Allah, and therefore, they could affront the Prophet, because... We have done nothing to redeem the Prophet Muhammad. But I say to them: You haven't seen anything yet. Allah willing, the soldiers of the 'Pioneers of Tomorrow' will redeem the Prophet Muhammad with all that they possess, and even with their blood, Assud. They will not allow them to do this again."
Assud:"If they do it again, Saraa, we will kill them, right?"
Assud:"I will bite them and eat them up."
"Assud, we are not terrorists. All we want is to get our beloved homeland, Palestine, back. We want all of Palestine to be ours. We are not terrorists..."
Assud:"Because it was ours to begin with, right?"
Saraa:"Right. They say we are terrorists merely because we want this, but of course, we're not terrorists..."
Assud:"They are the terrorists." . . .
Assud:"Who will host this show if you are martyred? Will 100,000 Saraas take your place?"
Saraa:"Allah willing, Assud."
Assud:"We'll take them from among the 'Pioneers of Tomorrow,' Allah willing."
Saraa:"Allah willing, there are thousands of soldiers of the 'Pioneers of Tomorrow.'"
Assud:"Martyrdom for the sake of Allah is what we hope for, right?"
Saraa:"Right, Assud." [...]
Saraa:"What do you have to say to the cartoonist who started all this, and affronted the Prophet by drawing him?"
Assud:"He's a criminal..."
Saraa:"Yes, a criminal."
Tasnim, by phone :"I say to him, and to all of them, that no matter how much they try to hide him, we will manage to kill him, to assassinate him."
