While Joe Biden and his administration is set to repeated their Afghan blunder in Iran and on the Palestinian issues, the Palestinian Authority unremittingly teaches Palestinians – and in particular youth – that all of Israel is “Palestine” and that Israel has no right to exist in any borders. One way the PA instills the message is through activities in summer camps arranged by the PLO Supreme Council for Youth and Sports.
Hamas jihad training camps for children also proceeded this summer.
“Maps of ‘Palestine’ in PA summer camps teach children about a world without Israel,” by Nan Jacques Zilberdik and Itamar Marcus, Palestinian Media Watch, September 6, 2021:
The Palestinian Authority unremittingly teaches Palestinians – and in particular youth – that all of Israel is “Palestine” and that Israel has no right to exist in any borders. One way the PA instills the message is through activities in summer camps arranged by the PLO Supreme Council for Youth and Sports.
This year too, Palestinian children were taught that there is no Israel but only “occupied Palestine” as they spent time drawing maps in which all of Israel and the PA areas are painted as one country and in the colors of the Palestinian flag…..
Interviews with Palestinian children show that kids have internalized these messages, repeating that “Palestine” should be “liberated”:
Boy: “Jerusalem is the proud capital of Palestine. It is the first direction of [Muslim] prayer and the third holiest site [in Islam]. It has great importance for the Muslims because it contains the Dome of the Rock and the Al-Aqsa Mosque, and it has great importance for the Christians because it contains the Church of the Holy Sepulchre. Currently, it is occupied by the Israelis, and we are demanding to liberate it”.
Yet another grim reminder about the fervent Palestinian jihad against Israel with its goal to obliterate it “from the River to the Sea” (presented to the world as a freedom chant).
Meanwhile, according to media reports, Al-Quds Brigades, the military wing of Islamic Jihad, concluded its summer training camps in July 2021 with the participation of more than 2,000 boys ages 14 to 17, who received military training simulating a confrontation with the Israeli army.
The media report said:
A group of Palestinian boys dressed in black military uniforms with black paint covering their faces climbed nets suspended on iron bars and jumped amidst thick black smoke emanating from burning rubber tires.
Others competed on iron obstacles and then jumped over burning tires, executing the instructions of masked members affiliated with al-Quds Brigades, the military wing of the Palestinian Islamic Jihad.
The Islamic Jihad launched voluntary registration for boys on June 17 through registration points it had set up in several mosques in Gaza City. The summer camp was dubbed Sword of Jerusalem.
Media reports said, the number of participants this year was “significantly higher” than the previous years. Participants were taught numerous ways of terrorist and destructive acts, including how to suddenly attack and stab Israeli citizen.
Similarly, Izz ad-Din al-Qassam Brigades, Hamas’ military wing, launched on June 26 its military Vanguards of Liberation summer camps. The first phase of the camps, held in Saraya Square in the center of Gaza City with the participation of thousands of boys, ended on July 1. In these summer camps Hamas has openly proclaimed its affiliations with Iran and has asked its supporters and fighters to consider Iran as the “best ally” of the Palestinians. The Hamas leadership has also asked the participants of the summers camps to take preparations for “driving Jews out of Israel and the Middle East” and extend support to Iran’s jihad against the “Western puppets” in the Middle Eastern nations.
