Over here we have CBeebies and in Egypt they have Al-Rahm, which screens children’s programmes too — the only difference between the two networks being the virulently antisemitic content of the latter.
On a recent Islamic children’s show, a child was quoted as saying “Oh Allah, completely destroy and shatter the Jews.
“Oh Allah, torment them with a disease which has no cure or remedy. Send a thunderbolt down upon them from heaven.
“Oh Allah, torment them with every kind of torment.”
The host replied: “Well done. I let him end the show on purpose... This is one stage in becoming a future preacher.”
It makes one nostalgic for the days of “‘Time for bed’, said Zebedee.”
