True to her apparent mission, which is to go beyond merely reporting a story, and instead to become a spokesman for a Leftist, anti-American, anti-Israel, pro-Communist group, Tucker ends her rather lengthy article by giving MECA the last word:
“Even while the children in Gaza are living under Israeli policies that deprive them of every basic necessity, they managed through art to express their realities and hopes,” said Ziad Abbas, the associate director of the Middle East Children’s Alliance, in a statement. “It’s really very sad that there are people in the U.S. silencing them and shredding their dreams.”
You know what? Ziad Abbas and, by extension, Tucker are right that those Gazan kids shouldn’t be silenced. Let me be the first, therefore, to share with you here their “shredded dreams.”
Their main dream is a simple one: to kill Jews. As an 11-year-old boy stated succinctly, “I am learning how to fight the Jews and kill Jewish children.” Another dream is world domination, and what better way to sell that idea than through a big teddy bear (or perhaps a bunny rabbit) assuring little Palestinian children that the future is theirs:
Dear children, when we grow up, we will become martyrs, God willing. [...]
“Yes, Saraa, the pioneers of tomorrow will liberate the Al-Aqsa Mosque. The children, the pioneers of tomorrow, and not only in the Gaza Strip and the West Bank, but all over the world, my dear Saraa and dear children.” [...]
Then, of course, there’s the vague “born to kill” dream that permeates Palestinian children’s culture:
My dear children, there is not a single Palestinian village or city whose people do not know how to use a gun. Why? Because they have suckled this with their mother’s milk.
And who can forget every Palestinian child’s vivid dream personally to stab former President Bush to death?
Child: “You are impure, Bush, so you are not allowed inside the White House.”
Bush: “What are you saying?! Why am I not allowed into the White House?”
Child: “Because it has been turned into a great mosque for the nation of Islam. I will kill you just like Mu’az killed Abu Lahab. I will kill you, Bush, because that is your fate.”
Child stabs Bush repeatedly
Child: “Ahhh, I killed him.”
I don’t know why Tucker couldn’t have elaborated a bit more on those shredded dreams. It took me only five minutes on the internet to find all that useful information.
