Most people in American are led to believe by the media that the Palestinian Arabs and the wider Arab world don't like Israel, but don't have any real problem with the US outside of its relations to the Jewish state.
What most people forget, however, is that Islam preaches dominance, military dominance, over all infidels, including "Christian" nations like America. Palestinian children being raised as Muslims have these lessons ingrained in their minds, making genuinely peaceful relations with the West, let alone Israel, little more than a pipe dream.
This was most recently demonstrated in the latest airing of the popular Palestinian children's television program Tomorrow's Pioneers on Hamas' Al Aqsa TV.
During the program, a young boy from the audience was called on to sing a song he had prepared. It went as follows:
"Daddy gave me a present, a machine gun and a rifle.
When I am a big boy, I will join the Liberation Army.
The army of [Izz Al-Din] Al-Qassam (Hamas),
which has taught us how to defend our homeland.
Our homeland is precious, precious.
We [are] victorious, victorious over America and Israel.
[Improvises:] Son of a bitch - what brought you to this land?"
Translation of the broadcast was provided by Palestinian Media Watch, which noted that Palestinian children are being successfully taught that "violence is the ideal means to solve conflict."
