On Wednesday 1st August, Israeli newspaper Maariv stated that Palestinians took revenge for the Egyptian president Mohammad Mursi, by making a video in response to the Israeli video which insulted Mursi.
The newspaper said in a report titled, "See the retaliatory Palestinian video from the Gaza Strip", that Palestinians from the Gaza Strip uploaded a video on YouTube responding to the Israeli video that promotes for the construction of the Jewish temple on the ruins of Al-Aqsa Mosque.
Maariv revealed that the Israeli video had almost caused a diplomatic crisis between Cairo and Tel Aviv, while the Palestinian film was uploaded by Palestinians and is not considered an official response to the Egyptian Foreign Ministry. Therefore, they hold full responsibility for the uploading of this video and that the Egyptian Foreign Minister is not responsible for it.
Maariv said that the Palestinian film had become famous and brought till now, around 185,545 hits on YouTube.
Maariv also revealed that the Israeli video shows two Israeli kids building the Jewish temple on the beach. They get the attention of their father who drops the newspaper that displays the picture of Mursi on the ground. That was considered an insult for president Mursi.
While the Palestinian video shows a similar scene of two Palestinian children building al-Aqsa mosque and making a three-dimensional map of Palestine on the beach. They then call their father who is seen to be writing "No God but Allah" on a piece of paper and places it as a flag on the top of Al-Aqsa mosque.
At the end of both videos, the Israeli video makes a provocative statement that says, "The Children are Ready". The Palestinian video responded by another provocative statement, "Our Children are Ready Too."
