Are Summer Camps in Gaza a fun Escape for Children?

MYTH

Summer camp for Palestinians in Gaza is a fun escape for children like American camps.

FACT

Palestinian children would probably love to have the summer camp experience many American kids enjoy. For Palestinians in Gaza, however, the purpose of camp is not to have fun but to indoctrinate children with the Hamas ideology and to train them to join their terrorist ranks. This is nothing new; similar camps have been run for years.

Summer camp teaches Palestinian children how to resist the Israelis and that the greatest glory is to be a martyr. Campers stage mock kidnappings and learn how to slit the throats of Israelis. Islamic Jihad has run “Paradise Camps” that offered 8-12 year-olds military training and encourage them to become suicide bombers (Near East Report, June 25, 2001; Jerusalem Post, July 20, 2001).

Never mind the state it's in as I tidy everything up prior to publication. Don't let good material go to waste - and so much does. In the interests of the environment we should always try to re-cycle everything, especially jokes. You know that makes sense! You may find some historical stuff here, but this does not really matter as humor is fairly timeless.
