What are Palestinians teaching their children today?

Disturbing items seen in Muslim quarter part of Jerusalem. NB; These are not pics off the internet, I took these myself.  In one case some local teenagers were playing with a toy gun and aimed it and Jewish passers by.

Moshiach is the Hebrew word for Messiah. You can argue that army service is mandatory for Israeli Jews (Arabs, Bedouins, Druze, Armenians and other ethnic groups in Israel can also join as well but are optional) and they are required to carry their guns when not on duty.

All Israelis I know join the army out of duty and learn many valuable skills during then, but really don’t want to go to war, but see a need to defend their nation from enemies on several directions.

Please pray for Arab children in Israel, that they would not be taught hate and violence.

NB, I was shocked to hear a Palestinian child died in a house fire a couple of days ago which was done deliberately with Hebrew graffiti (Price tag message) was left nearby.    Actual attacks on Arab families and children by extremist Jews can happen but happen extremely rarely.  I know the Israel government are determined to find and punish who was responsible for this, and the other child of the family is being treated in hospital.   Please pray this won’t mean more revenge attacks to anyone.

Disturbing toys for Arab children – Little Tykes Jihad

These were all taken by me in Jerusalem’s Arab quarter of the Old City, there’s often quite a few shops that sell toys and games here.  I mean Arabs and Jews have larger (5-10 kids is not unusual) families then Westerners.    This sign points towards the Al Aqsa mosque past this row of vendors of market goods.

P1070158I guess this mini laptop teaches Koran and Islamic theology to kids?

This below picture really is proof that teaching war and hatred to kids is very real problem here.   Look closely and this Chinese made toy has pictures of lots of Muslims bowed in prayer and kids dressed up in a costume consistent with Jihad terrorism.

After all many people in the west are only upset when the US, Israel and Europe take action against Islamic terror, when actually there are more people killed from Arab versus Arab wars.

I think mostly the world will turn a blind eye and think its someone else’s problem.

As a believer in Jesus, my God loves Arab people and children, more and more people today in the middle east and elsewhere are leaving Islam and finding a saviour that loves them.

I make a habit of praying over Muslim children that I see here, that they wouldn’t be brainwashed into any kind of hatred.   Matthew 18:6 warns of harsh consequences of those who abuse children in any way.
