An animated video portraying several real-life Palestinian terror attacks against Israelis was found TikTok, the on the video-sharing social networking app popular with children. TikTok has now removed the video.

The video, which appeared to glorify the murder of Jews, highlighted four separate attacks in CGI vignettes set to heroic music. PMW, an Israeli watchdog which monitors Palestinian media, said that it had previously “exposed similar animations urging Palestinians to murder Israelis” and noted that TikTok was popular among children.

The video featured recreations of a 2014 car-ramming attack in Jerusalem which killed Jidan Assad and Shalom Aharon Badani; a 2015 stabbing attack in the Old City which killed Rabbi Nehemiah Lavi and Aharon Bennett; a 2016 Drive-by shooting in Jerusalem which killed Levana Malichi and IDF Sgt. Yosef Kirma; and a 2015 stabbing near the Damascus Gate in which three policemen were wounded.

TikTok, the video-sharing social networking app popular with children, said Friday it had removed an animated video portraying several real-life Palestinian terror attacks against Israelis and banned the account.

“Our Community Guidelines make it clear that we do not allow content that promotes terrorism, crime, or other behaviours that could cause harm,” TikTok said in a statement sent to The Times of Israel. “We take our commitment to keeping TikTok safe incredibly seriously.”

Israel and the US have long criticized the Palestinian Authority for encouraging a culture of incitement and of glorifying perpetrators of terrorist acts. It’s time for the rest of the world to join in this condemnation.
