More than 500 Hamas members of Hamas’s armed wing, Ezaddin al-Qassam, are supervising the military training and religious education in the camps to train future jihadis in the war against Israel. Hamas’s religious education is aimed at teaching the children about Islam and its sharia laws. They are also being taught that making peace with the “infidels” is prohibited under the teachings of Islam.
It is disturbing to see how international and Palestinian human rights organizations, especially those claiming to defend children’s rights, are turning a blind eye to this large-scale child abuse by Hamas. These organizations only care about children’s rights when there is a way to throw all the blame on Israel.
