While children worldwide have started summer camps specializing in sports, arts or general fun, the children of Gaza have been attending a special camp training them to commit terror attacks against civilians.
“Imagine what they could be learning instead,” Israel’s Coordinator of Government Activities in the Territories said on Twitter.
Fatah — the rival Palestinian party to Hamas — is also conducting a summer camp teaching about Yasser Arafat and Saddam Hussein. They also promoted Abu Jihad, who was responsible for terror attacks against civilians during the Lebanon War and Abu Iyad , the organizer of the 1972 Munich Olympics attack that killed 11 Israeli athletes.
Palestinian Media Watch reported that many Palestinian summer camps have been named after terrorists.
“The blatant misuse by Fatah and the PLO of its summer camps is yet another example of the extent that the Palestinian Authority goes to, to indoctrinate and abuse their own children,” senior PMW analyst Nan Jacques Zilberdik said. “Instead of teaching Palestinian children the building blocks for life, these programs are preaching that violence and terror are legitimate – and that arch-terrorists, who are responsible for the murder of hundreds of Israeli civilians, are their ultimate role models.”
