An appalling video posted to Facebook recently shows a Jordanian father egging on his daughter as she holds a knife and says she wants to “stab a Jew.”
The video, originally captioned “Rehf threatens Zionists with a knife,” was posted Oct. 16 on the Facebook page of Abdulhaleem Abuesha, who is a schoolteacher of Palestinian extraction in the Jordanian city of Madaba, which also hosts a Palestinian refugee camp. Rehf appears to be Abuesha’s daughter. The video was discovered and translated by the Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI), a media watchdog, which also uploaded the video to YouTube.
“I want to stab a Jew,” MEMRI quotes the girl saying in the video.
“Why do you want to stab the Jew?” her father asks.
“Because he stole our land,” she replies.
“With what do you want to stab them?” the father asks.
“With a knife,” she says.
“Oh, you’re so strong! Allah willing, my dear,” he says to conclude the video. MEMRI also found phots on Abuesha’s Facebook of his young son holding the same knife, which appears at the end of their uploaded video.
Israel has recently seen a wave of violence that has killed dozens, with repeated incidents of Palestinians attacking Israelis with knives, leading some to dub this the “Knife Intifada.” The name recalls two earlier Palestinian “intifadas” (meaning “uprising” in Arabic) that killed thousands.(RELATED: Palestinian Terror Now Come From Knives, Not Suicide Bombs)
