In the video, children wearing Palestinian scarves can be heard reading poems that praise 'martyrs' who sacrificed their lives for Palestine and herald the 'liberation' of Al-Aqsa mosque.
A disturbing video apparently filmed at an Islamic center in Pennsylvania has been doing the rounds on social media.
The footage shows children celebrating 'Ummah Day' with anti-Jewish songs and poems, according to MEMRI, a non-profit that provides English language translations of Middle Eastern media.
The kids can be heard listening to an Arabic song which reportedly says: "Those who reject oppression are the ones who assert their existence, and they eliminate injustice from the land of the Arabs."
"Glorious steeds call us and lead us… to the Al-Aqsa Mosque. The blood of martyrs protects us."
There are also lines saying, "take us, oh ships, until we liberate our lands until we reach our shores and crush the treacherous ones" and "my Islam is calling, who is going to heed its call? Rise, oh righteous ones!"
A young girl was filmed reading a poem praising martyrs who fought for the Palestinian cause: "Martyrs sacrificed their lives without hesitation. They attained paradise, and the scent of musk emanates from their bodies."
"Will Jerusalem be their capital city, or will it be a hotbed for cowards?" she asked.
Another young girl was translated as reading: "We will defend the land of divine guidance with our bodies."
"We will chop off their heads, and we will liberate the sorrowful and exalted Al-Aqsa Mosque," she said, referring to one of the holiest places in Islam, which is located on Jerusalem's Temple Mount and is the flashpoint of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
