"Raised on Hatred"

The redoubtable Ayaan Hirsi Ali, on jew hatred, in today's International Herald Tribune:
EGYPT’S newly elected president, Mohamed Morsi, was caught on tape about three years ago urging his followers to “nurse our children and our grandchildren on hatred” for Jews and Zionists. Not long after, the then-leader of the Muslim Brotherhood described Zionists as “bloodsuckers who attack the Palestinians,” “warmongers” and “descendants of apes and pigs.”
These remarks are disgusting, but they are neither shocking nor new. 
The rest..
Meantime, Roger Cohen, usually a stern critic of Israel, finally gets around to pointing the finger where it should be: to Hamas and its odious ideology: in "The blight of return".
