I apologize for my current feelings at the moment.

I can't find anyone 100 percent guilty or victim in the current IP atrocity of behaviours.

It's all hellish when children die because of the actions of their elders.

It's all hellish when it has been done under the guise of bronze age superstitions.

Let me change that... I can find all the dead victims.

Video Purportedly Shows Israeli Children Singing ‘We Will Annihilate Everyone’ in Gaza
Story by Nur Ibrahim •


In November 2023, a controversial music video in which a group of children allegedly sang about the "annihilation" of Gaza was shared, then deleted, on Israeli public broadcaster Kan News’ online platforms. The Electronic Intifada, an online publication that focuses on Palestinian perspectives, shared a copy of that video, with their translation of the song.

Titled "Friendship Song," the video in question featured a group of children reportedly singing in a re-recording of an old song originally written by Israeli poet Haim Gouri after the 1948 war that led to the creation of the state of Israel, but with amended lyrics referring to Gaza. David Sheen, an independent filmmaker and writer, translated these new lyrics for The Electronic Intifada into English from Hebrew. Per his translation, the children sang:

Autumn night falls over the beach of Gaza

Planes are bombing, destruction, destruction

Look the IDF is crossing the line

to annihilate the swastika-bearers

In another year there will be nothing there

And we will safely return to our homes

Within a year we will annihilate everyone

And then we will return to plow our fields

The above video is indeed real and was created by Israeli advocacy group The Civil Front, which frequently does public campaigns to support the Israeli armed forces. The children in the slickly-produced video wore black T-shirts with the same blue logo as that on The Civil Front’s YouTube page.

The video was also available on the group's YouTube page and was published on Nov. 19, 2023:
After the Oct. 7, 2023, attacks by Hamas in Israel, The Civil Front carried out a billboard campaign in Tel Aviv in order to show support for Israeli soldiers and police officers. Some of the billboards, according to The Jerusalem Post, used AI-generated images of Hamas and Hezbollah leadership showing them beaten and captured by Israeli soldiers.

While the video was not created by Kan News, it was shared on Kan News' website with the new lyrics before being deleted. The archived link is available here. The same video was shared on Kan News’ X account, @kann_news, before being deleted, but the post remains archived here. While @kann_news has no check mark to signal its authenticity, its content is frequently reposted by the broadcaster's main X account, @kann. Kan’s official website directly links to the @kann X account."

My God. This could have been any group/nationality of children. Teach your children well.

Think. Again.

...unless the children got together and decided to find, sing, and videotape that song all on their own, which I doubt.
