PA TV children's song: Martyrdom is "sweet"
A clip indoctrinating teenage Palestinian children that Martyrdom is sweet ran hundreds of times on official PA TV for four years. The clip is designed to offset a child's natural fear of death and portrays Martyrdom as both heroic and tranquil. The film's hero, a teenager, leaves a farewell letter describing the death he is seeking as pleasurable: "How sweet is Martyrdom." It was broadcast repeatedly from 2001-2004, sometimes even three times a day.
"Don't be sad my dear [father], and don't cry over my parting.
My dear father, for my country, I sacrificed myself.
With determination and desire, I will keep my promise.
How sweet is Shahada [Martyrdom], when I am embraced by you, my land!
How sweet is Shahada [Martyrdom], when I am embraced by you, my land!
My beloved, my mother, most dear to me,
be joyous over my blood, don't cry for me."
The words "How sweet is Martyrdom when I embrace you, oh my land!" are sung as the child actor is seen in the above picture falling dead and "embracing" the land.
