Why the Philly ‘cut off their heads’ video of Muslim children is so disturbing



There’s a truly terrible trend we’re seeing in mainstream media today. It’s gone beyond the anti-conservative sentiment of an industry controlled mostly by the left. They’ve entered into truly dangerous territory in their cumulative quests to push certain narratives while suppressing others.

It can be clearly seen in the video released by MEMRI of children under the direction of the Muslim American Society singing songs and reading poetry that should be considered absolutely offensive to, well, anyone. It was posted by MAS Philly on April 22, 2019.

“The Muslim American Society (MAS) Islamic Center in Philadelphia posted the video to its Facebook page celebrating ‘Ummah Day’ in which young children wearing Palestinian scarves sang and read poetry about killing for Allah and the mosque in Jerusalem,” Fox News reported. “One girl talks about martyrs sacrificing their lives without hesitation to conquer Jerusalem.”

Let that sink in a moment. Now, consider that it wasn’t even the worst part of the video.

At one point, a girl reads poetry that should be seen as appalling:

“We will defend the land of divine guidance with our bodies, and we will sacrifice our souls without hesitation. We will chop off their heads, and we will liberate the sorrowful and exalted Al-Aqsa Mosque. We will lead the army of Allah fulfilling His promise, and we will subject them to eternal torture.”

I say it should be appalling because the majority of Americans heard nothing about it. That’s what we’re faced with today, a mainstream media institution that buries any form of bigotry and hatred unless it’s spoken by groups outside of the media’s protective bubble.

Imagine if a Christian celebration had children reciting poetry calling for the deaths of other people of other religions. Imagine if children at a Jewish celebration sang songs asking what’s the point of the existence of people of other religions. Mainstream media would be outside the church hurling stones with other protesters.

“If Christians don’t wake up, if Christians leaders don’t wake up, then we Muslims who fled from extremists can’t help you anymore,” said Mohammad Tawhidi, a Muslim author from Australia. “We tried warning you.”

That’s what we’re faced with in America today. The since of certain people groups are ignored while the sins of “privileged” groups are blown up and condemned as indicative of the whole of the group in question.

We are all fools if we follow the narratives set forth by mainstream media. They only report the news that fits their agenda. If Muslim children pledge to cut off the heads of anyone who disagrees with them, the story is buried.
