Make no mistake, and don’t let Western powerbrokers and media fool you: the Israeli-Palestinian conflict is at its core a religious war.

The Jewish people returned to this land based on a Biblical promise. And behind the Palestinian campaign to reverse Israel’s restoration is Allah’s commandment in the Koran to kill every Jew.

At least that’s what Palestinian kids these days are being taught.

That’s what Arabic-speaking Israeli journalist Ohad Hemo learned in an uncomfortable chat with a group of Palestinian Arab teens in Jerusalem this week.

Hemo headed over to the eastern side of the city to find out about the worrying rise in support for Hamas among local Arab residents following last month’s violence at the Temple Mount.

Hamas leader “Yihya Sinwar called for the massacre of Jews,” Hemo told the youngsters, apparently hoping to persuade them against aligning with such a violent movement.

“Yes, every Jew must die,” responded one of the youth.

“But I’m a Jew. Do I need to die?” asked Hemo.

The answer came without hesitation: “Yes! It is written in the Koran that every Jew must die!”
