For Hezbollah, the indoctrination of hate begins with the very young. With some young boys barely out of diapers, the Tehran-based terror group must be proud to see six-year-olds robotically rattle off their “enemies’ names” and call for their deaths.
The sham outrage is based on the excuse of President Donald Trump moving the US Embassy in Israel to Jerusalem.Their mothers insist that early childhood is “the right age to learn” the ideology of hate.
Ali is six, and yet already he fiercely chants “Death to America” and “Death to Israel” at a rally alongside his family. It is a typical Beirut rally, organized by the Shia militia Hezbollah, to protest US President Donald Trump’s decision to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.
“At six, he is too old to not be here,” his mother Fatima said as she pushed the stroller carrying Ali’s baby brother, justifying her decision to bring her children to a political rally. She seemed unconcerned that his words were hate speech.
“This is the right age to learn about how the Jews took our land,” Fatima said. She spoke heatedly about the events of 1948, when the state of Israel was formed on Palestinian land. “America helps Israel regularly and imposes war on us and now the Satan wants to give our mosque to the Jews,” Fatima said.
The Al Aqsa Mosque is the third most sacred site in Islam and is situated in East Jerusalem. In the Six-Day War in 1967, Israel seized and annexed the Old City, and Palestinians and the wider Arab world have been demanding its return ever since.
It is small wonder that a single stone remains of the Al Aqsa mosque. According to the propaganda reports that continuously broadcast from Hezbollah and others in the Arab world, Israel is constantly “attacking” the mosque, yet Muslims remain free to worship there.
