Palestinian children's choir being used by jihadists: Report



Palestinian children`s choir being used by jihadists: Report Jerusalem: An Arabic children's choir has been racking up views all over the world with the new hit "when we die as martyrs, we will go to heaven," being widely used by Jihadists for youth indoctrination.

The Investigative Project on Terrorism, one of the world's most comprehensive data centers on radical terror groups, said the song is a hit on Arabic and worldwide websites, and the children's choir performing it fast is becoming one of the most popular children's groups in the Arab world.

The song, also posted on Youtube, was apparently recorded by the Jordanian owned production company and television channel "Birds of Paradise."

In the video clip, a young brown eyed girl sings in front of what seems to be a group of children in pre-school the lyrics "Without Palestine, what does childhood mean?"

YouTube has already received dozens of spinoffs and remakes of the video, some of which depict Arabic children mimicking the lyrics while others show Jihadists using it as background music.

As per Saudi newspaper Al-Jazirah "Birds of Paradise is one of the most widely distributed children's song groups in the Arab world, and it seems to have crossed the ocean to Canada and Britain."

The group represents a new wave in Jihadist youth indoctrination, as it is child?friendly, as opposed to previous Jihadist programmes, it said.
