Canadian Arabic-language Newspaper Publishes Article Inciting Violence

Another Arabic-language newspaper has featured an article blatantly glorifying terrorism by honoring Palestinian mothers who “sacrificed” their children as “martyrs” and suicide bombers.

The article boasts of deadly terrorist operations sanctioned by Hamas and the Palestinian Islamic Jihad. But this article was not only circulated among several Arabic websites, it also was published in the Toronto-based Arabic-language newspaper Meshwar, according to a press release from the Centre for Israel and Jewish Affairs (CIJA).

Meshwar featured a story in its Aug. 3 issue which highlighted three mothers with sons who had orchestrated suicide bombings targeting Israelis as part of “the jihad for Palestine.”

“Learning about the stories of (the mothers) Umm Mahioub, Umm Radwan and Umm Nidal makes you wonder. It is true that we see the scenes of the martyr’s family almost daily in Palestine, but phenomena such as the mothers of the ‘martyrs as a whole’ are human phenomena…What is the nature of these people? Where did all this faith come from and all this iron ability to sacrifice and give and be patient and to bear pain and separation, and ask for more?” writes Muhammad Sayf al-Dawla as translated by the Investigative Project on Terrorism.

In the interests of the environment we should always try to re-cycle everything, especially jokes. You know that makes sense! You may find some historical stuff here, but this does not really matter as humor is fairly timeless.
