The rip-off of YouTube is so glaring, even the title bar translates to "YouTube maximum AqsaTube".
This video channel of Hamas' also encourages Palestinian Arab terrorist unity, as it generously provides sections of the site to Fatah, the PRC, the Democratic Front, Islamic Jihad and "miscellaneous" terror groups, which include some videos of terrorists in Iraq and elsewhere.
There is also a children's section, filled with things like a cartoon showing cigarette-smoking and scowling Israeli soldiers targeting Mohammed al-Dura. Another video meant for children is filled with images of dead children and babies.

Elder of Ziyon - حـكـيـم صـهـيـون
This blog may be a labor of love for me, but it takes a lot of effort, time and money. For over 11 years and over 23,000 articles I have been providing accurate, original news that would have remained unnoticed. I've written hundreds of scoops and sometimes my reporting ends up making a real difference. I appreciate any donations you can give to keep this blog going.
