Arab man condemns sheik on Temple Mount for teaching children about ‘martyrdom’

Video footage of over two dozen Arab children attending Al-Aksa Mosque Summer Camp on the Temple Mount being lectured about violent martyrdom and fighting Jews was published online by the Middle East Media Research Institute on Tuesday.
In the four-minute video, taken Monday, Sheik Khaled Al-Maghrabi, who runs the camp, tells the group of boys and girls that “The martyr is absolved with the first drop of his blood,” as heavily armed Border Police officers look on.
Al-Maghrabi goes on to state that after being killed, martyrs go on to marry “two virgins in paradise” and can “vouch for 70 family members on Judgment Day,” as the children initially appear bored by the discussion.
Two minutes into the video, as the children begin chanting “Allah Akbar” upon Al-Maghrabi’s instruction, an unidentified Arab man approaches the sheik to condemn him.
