Muslim society: 'Disturbing' video of children posted by Philadelphia chapter wasn't vetted

A video showing children speaking in Arabic about sacrifice and chopping off heads wasn't vetted before being posted on the Facebook page for the Muslim American Society's Philadelphia chapter, and it does not represent their values, the executive director of the national group said Sunday.

Executive Director Ayman Hammous said the Muslim American Society learned of the content of the video after the Middle East Media Research Institute posted a translation Friday. The society issued a statement calling the video "disturbing" and condemning the words used in it.

"It does not represent our understanding of Islam, nor the understanding of the mainstream Muslim community," Hammous said in an interview Sunday.

In the two-minute video from an April event, two young girls are shown reading. One says, "We will sacrifice our souls without hesitation, we will chop off their heads" and liberate the Al-Aqsa Mosque in Jerusalem.
