Suffer the Little Children…

In Merrye Olde Yorkshire, not everyone is singing Christmas carols:

stick of dynamite…a “sing-along” DVD for children which appears to glorify suicide bombing was last night under police investigation after being found on sale in Yorkshire.

The Yorkshire Post has obtained a disc of music videos – part of an Egyptian-made series – in which a young girl sings about following in the footsteps of her suicide bomber mother. A group of self-proclaimed orphans also rail against the West over the plight of the Palestinian people.


All three of the DVD’s tracks are sung by children in Arabic with English subtitles.

The first song is about two children who lose their mother when she becomes a suicide bomber. It believed to be a reference to Reem al-Reyashi, a 22-year-old Palestinian mother-of- two who blew herself up on January 14, 2004, at a crossing, in the Gaza Strip, killing four Israelis.

The video begins with an Arab woman playing with her two children, then leaving her home with dynamite tucked in her dress, blowing herself up after being challenged by uniformed soldiers, and her children and husband finding out about her death on TV.

The elder of her two clearly upset children, a girl, asks why their mother would leave them and says of her toddler brother: “He doesn’t eat except in your arms. Everything for him is you (sic).”

But there is a disturbing change of tone towards the end of the track. Rummaging around her mother’s wardrobe, the girl finds a stick of dynamite hidden in a drawer and, turning to look at the camera, concludes with a steely gaze and the chilling words: “My love will not be by words. I will follow my mother’s steps.”

The small video (available at the news site) is truly disturbing. Officials say it is aimed at young children, but I disagree. I think it highly likely that the propaganda is aimed toward mothers of young children. And that is disturbing.

Meanwhile, Bradford Muslims are equally upset:

Bradford Council for Mosques spokesman Ishtiaq Ahmed said: “We are very concerned about the fact that this material is on sale and could prove to be provocative. Children and families are being exploited and it is not something we encourage or support.


“It is not something we have been aware of before. We have seen people distributing leaflets but not DVDs like this.”

As the Yorkshire Post revealed yesterday, the DVD was bought in Bradford – home to two of the four July 7 suicide bombers and the location of a bomb factory for the attack – and distributed by a Leeds firm whose address and telephone number are on the cover.

  1. Is anything being done to stop the distribution of enemy propaganda such as this? Hmmm… meanwhile, those of us who work to expose and stop enemy activity find ourselves bfing censored. Websense has blacklisted Foehammer’s Anvil as a “games” site, even though it is a news aggregator and commentary site – so that people cannot access it from work.

    GOV is also being blocked. Expect another Stop Blog Censorship! campaign article soon on 1389 Blog.

  2. Don’t you know that counter-jihad blogs are divisive? As in, they undermine the morbid day dream of One Global United Humanity. And for atheists the One Global United Humanity is the last thing they have to live for. They’d rather be put on the electric chair than abandon the belief in One Global United Humanity.

    Muslim children, they blow up so quickly these days.

    If there is one single thing that will condemn Islam to history’s scrapheap, it is how they devour their young. Infants—strapped into their car seats—left to die in the detonation of an Iraqi car bomb. Benazir Bhutto’s near miss with death involved an explosives laden baby. No other ideology so cheerfully hurls its infants into the furnace. Islam is a cult of human sacrifice and nothing less.

    When Western hands prepare to turn the Twin Keys of Doom™, it is the remembrance of such abject rapacity that will remove any hesitation.

  4. What is happening here is the normalization of suicide attacks through the use of multi media. In the age of sound bites and being mesmerized by the tube, this clip makes it seem normal, just another ad. It also illustrates the extent of infiltration by Jihadi into Western society. The really unfortunate thing is that most people, our politicians especially, will simply not understand what is going on.
