You want to know just how enlightened and tolerant the Islamic world is? Watch as a
Saudi Egyptian toddler on Iqra TV in 2002 is praised for how well she’s learned her lessons in antisemitism:
From the transcript:
Amer: How old are you, Basmallah?
Basmallah: Three and a half.
Amer: Are you a Muslim?
Amer: Basmallah, do you know the Jews?
Amer: Do you like them?
Amer: Why don’t you like them?
Amer: Because they are what?
Basmallah: They are apes and pigs.
Amer: Because they are apes and pigs. Who said that about them?
Basmallah: Our God.
Amer: Where did he say that about them?
Basmallah: In the Koran.
That toddler would be about 12 or 13, now. I wonder what other lessons she’s learned?
By the way, Iqra TV described its mission as:
“…presenting the true moderate face of Islam to people in the West where media does not present an objective view on the Islamic Law.”
I don’t know about “moderate, but it is an objective view of Islam.
UPDATE 05/11/2014: The video has been suppressed at YouTube (naturally), but you can still see it by following the MEMRI link, above.
