PA kids say Jews killed Jesus and poisoned Arafat

Palestinian Media Watch unearths a little garden-variety anti-semitism from official Palestinian Authority TV:

Earlier this summer, in a dramatic performance at a PLO cultural festival, two young Palestinian boys lamented Arafat's death, and compared his death at the hands of the Jews to the death of Jesus:

Boy 1 [addressing Arafat]: "Father, father the Elder [Arafat]. Why did it happen this way? Why did it happen this way? Death chose you, and you did not complete the path."

Boy 2: "Do not ask why it happened this way. Yesterday they crucified Jesus; today they poisoned the father, the Elder [Arafat]."
[PA TV (Fatah), June 4, 2010]

The PA Minister of Culture was present at this performance.
They are calling Arafat "Elder"?

Now, it's personal.
