‘Occupied’ Sesame Street

P.A. children’s show propagandizes to Israeli Arabs

Print Email

It’s not nearly as bad as those Hamas cartoons—one of which features an Israeli soldier strafing Palestinian children—but a children’s television show broadcast by the Palestinian Authority shows a woman telling Israeli Arab children that the “program” is for them, too, because they live in “Occupied Palestine.” There’s also a big blue guy: not sure why. Maybe it’s the Palestinian Cookie Monster? Kanafeh Monster?

It’s not that there aren’t some on the Israeli side who see, say, the West Bank as rightfully Israel’s. But this is the government putting this stuff out. Maybe educating children that part of the land between the river and the sea belongs to Israel should be one thing that emerges out of the new indirect peace talks?
