Under the guise of an event on “The Golden Age of Islamic Science,” children are seen lip-syncing violent lyrics about liberating the Temple Mount.

Young American children went on stage last month to perform songs about violently liberating the Temple Mount from the Jews at a community event set up to supposedly celebrate Islamic scientific achievements, the Investigative Project on Terrorism (IPT) reported Saturday.
The Muslim American Society Islamic Center in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania (MAS Philly) openly posted on its Facebook page some videos taken of the performances of children representing various Arab countries at its “Ummah (Nation) Day” on April 17th.
Two groups, one of boys and one of girls, dressed as Palestinians and made choreographed motions to lively songs calling for martyrdom and bloodshed, with a few of them also mouthing some of the violent lyrics.
In one video, a large group of girls are smiling and moving their hands to anti-Semitic lyrics like the Palestinians having been “attacked by the army of darkness, and they occupied our Aqsa for years…But we are not to blame and our Masra will be restored.”
Al-Aqsa is the Arab name for the Temple Mount, which has been under Israeli security control since it was liberated in the 1967 Six Day War.
Another clip, translated by MEMRI, a nonprofit organization that monitors Arab-language incitement, shows nine boys glorifying terrorism. Standing in front of an audience full of younger children they can be seen singing such words as, “We will sacrifice ourselves of Al-Aqsa (the Temple Mount)” and “The blood of martyrs protects us. Paradise needs real men!”
The IPT quoted a legal brief in which American federal prosecutors stated that MAS “was founded as the overt arm of the Muslim Brotherhood in America.” The Trump Administration is currently attempting to formally label the group as a terrorist organization at the urging of its Egyptian ally, which has been threatened by the Brotherhood’s violent ambitions to turn the country into a Shariah state for decades.
