  • After Tel Aviv Attack, Palestinians Express Little Joy but Understand Gunmen's Motive

WATCH: Islamic Jihad 'cubs' demonstrate killing of IDF soldiers at Gaza kindergarten

A video published this week documenting the graduation ceremony of Islamic Jihad's "cubs" program for children provides a look into the violent, anti-Israel teaching that prevails in many Gazan kindergartens, which are administered by Palestinian terror organizations.

On Sunday, the 'Islamic Way Kindergarten' in Gaza's Zeitoun district held a graduation ceremony for dozens of children.A seven-minute video of the event has documented the kindergarten pupils turning from innocent children to well-trained "cubs" demonstrating how to kill Israeli soldiers.

The filmed program begins with a military parade, in which a group of children march on stage, holding weapons, to the sound of jihadi anthems.

After the parade, the children purportedly carry out a demonstration of a complex attack against IDF soldiers. The children are seen dividing into groups that use different modes of operation to target Israeli civilians and soldiers.

The first group acts out planting explosive devices beneath what appears to be an IDF tank, while the second groups mock fires rockets into Israel. Afterwards, all the cubs on the stage enacts the storming of IDF positions, pretending to kill one soldier and kidnap another. 

The show ends with a the group of children ostensibly claiming responsibility for the demonstrated terror attack, while one of them pertains to be the military spokesman of Islamic Jihad's military wing, the Quds Brigades.

Following the show, Khader Habib, a senior Islamic Jihad leader who attended the ceremony, delivered a short speech.

"This show sends a message of love. Our children dream to live like the rest of the world's children," Habib stated. "This is a message to the world, which maintains silence amid the killing of our children, our women and our elderly."

"We are telling the Zionist enemy: We do not want to kill anyone, we are not terrorists nor murders. Leave our lands and return it to its owners, do not oblige us to kill you," he added.

Video of the Week New Clashes Erupt Between Israeli Security Forces, Muslim Worshippers

Temple Mount temporarily closed to Jewish visitors after clashes with police

The Temple Mount was temporarily closed to Jewish visitors on Wednesday at the order of Jerusalem District Commander Yoram Halevy after Jews broke visitation rules at the holy site, police said. The Jewish visitors were expelled from the compound for bringing sacred books to the Mount and trying to pray there. After one of the individuals was cautioned, another took out a holy book, and the group was expelled. Meanwhile, renewed clashes erupted between protesters and Israeli security forces near the Lion's Gate in the Old City, where police used stun grenades against the demonstrators. A regular dynamic has developed involving clashes between Palestinians and Israel Police over the past several days near the Lion's Gate. Dozens of Palestinians are present at the site on a regular basis, urging devotion to the Al-Aqsa Mosque on the Temple Mount and condemning Israel. During Muslim prayer times, particularly the midday and nighttime prayers, hundreds and sometimes even thousands have been gathering there.

There have been outbreaks of violence during these periods, including stone-throwing or physical confrontations with the police. In most of these incidents, the police have been using stun grenades and sponge-tipped bullets to disperse the crowds. In a number of cases, journalists in the area have also suffered violence at the hands of the police. On Tuesday, Hassan Shaalan, a reporter for the Ynet news website, was struck by a policeman even after he identified himself as a member of the press. A group of Jerusalem-based journalists released a statement of condemnation over the incident and called on the police to permit reporters to do their jobs. The Jerusalem Police responded: "This involved an incident that took place in the course of violent disturbances of the peace that occurred in Jerusalem while the police were acting to remove the demonstrators from the street after some of them refused to vacate. The forces working on the scene are under constant threat to their lives. http://www.haaretz.com/israel-news/1.802141
