UN-Supported Palestinian NGO Puppet Show Tells Kids Smoking Is Bad But Killing Jews Is Good

Palestinian Media Watch reports that Palestinian kids were treated to a puppet show in which the following was said:

Puppet: "I, and many other youth like me, think that cigarettes will help us to grow, to turn into men. Jerusalem doesn't need men who hold cigarettes. It needs men who hold machine guns, not cigarettes."

In addition to teaching children not to smoke, the puppet show glorified death and violence and educated children to see Jews as "enemies" who kill the Palestinian youth of Jerusalem:
Puppet: "I wanted to stand before the audience and sing to Jerusalem, which is being kept from us. Jerusalem, whose youth are being killed by the Jews, to sing and to say:
Jerusalem, we are coming, Jerusalem, the time of death has arrived.
Jerusalem, we will not surrender to the enemies or be humiliated."

Newsflash puppeteers: if you're putting these words in the mouths of puppets, humiliation is thine.

I could feel the tears welling up as I read the puppets' lines, expressing as they did the warm solicitude of Palestinian society for the well-being of their young.

Actually, we live in such a morally topsy-turvy, absurd (and absurdist) world, that I would not be in the least surprised to see, during a second Obama Administration, natch, with the U. S. abstaining, the U. N. green-light a Moslem jihad against Israel, _on the condition that the war zone be kept smoke free_ (from cigarettes, that is--military incendiaries, both nuclear and conventional, would of course be allowed).
