Israel Matzav: The 'lovely' Saraa: Learning the language of the 'enemy'

The 'lovely' Saraa: Learning the language of the 'enemy'

On Hamas' al-Aqsa television on Friday, Tomorrow's Pioneers hostess Saraa Barhoum, the niece of Hamas spokesman Fawzi Barhoum, encourages a child to learn English because it's the 'language of the enemy.'

Let's go to the videotape. A transcript and more will follow.

Here's the transcript.

Child host: "What do you want to be in the future, Allah willing?"
Child caller: "A teacher of the English language."
Host: "Why do you want to be specifically an English teacher?"
Child: "To teach children the language of their enemy." [Child host smiles.]
Host: "Very nice. A great field. It is not enough for us to know our own language… We also want to study the language of our enemies, to know how to have contacts with them, and so that we can convey the message of Palestinian children..."
Nassur: "Like me! Just like I know the Zionist enemy’s language."
Host: "Really?"
Nassur: "Hebrew."
Host: "Okay, speak [in Hebrew]."
Nassur: "I can't." [laughing].

[Al-Aqsa (Hamas) TV, Oct. 16, 2009]
Maybe if they learn enough English, Hamas can start a game show like this one (Hat Tip: Soccer Dad).

What could go wrong?
