During a conference held in Gaza on the International Day of Solidarity with the Palestinian People, a Palestinian girl recited a poem that referred to the Jews as wild apes, miserable pigs, and evil creatures destined for humiliation. She said that they are like herds of stupid cattle, and that Jerusalem "spits out [their] filth" because it is a pure virgin. She also said: "I do not fear the rifle… As long as I have my arm and my stones… I will not sell out the Palestinian cause." The conference was held on November 29, 2018 and aired on Al-Jazeera TV (Qatar). November 29 was declared by the United Nations General Assembly as the International Day of Solidarity with the Palestinian People.
