Muslim American Society says 'disturbing' video of children wasn't vetted
[WASHINGTONTIMES] A video showing children speaking in Arabic about sacrifice and chopping off heads wasn’t vetted before being posted on the Facebook page for the Moslem American Society’s Philadelphia chapter, and it does not represent their values, the executive director of the national group said Sunday.
E pur si muove.
Executive Director Ayman Hammous said the Moslem American Society learned of the content of the video after the Middle East Media Research Institute posted a translation Friday. The society issued a statement calling the video "disturbing" and condemning the words used in it.
But obviously it was a kiddy school presentation. What are they teaching at the school? They didn't get that from passing gypsies or hobos.
"It does not represent our understanding of Islam, nor the understanding of the mainstream Moslem community," Hammous said in an interview Sunday.
Whose does it represent then? Obviously the kids'.
In the two-minute video from an April event, two maidens of tender years are shown reading. One says, "We will sacrifice our souls without hesitation, we will chop off their heads" and liberate the al-Aqsa Mosque in Jerusalem.
Yep. That's pretty much my understanding of Islam.
|The amusing thing being that Israel is demonstrating the value of such pledges right now, and apparently will demonstrate it even more obviously in the hours and possibly days to come.|
