'Summer Camp' in the Gaza Strip

Ad Feedback

JERUSALEM, Israel -- It's summertime again and for kids in the Gaza Strip, that means dressing up like jihadists and learning how to fight the Zionist enemy.

Every summer, Islamic Jihad, a Gaza-based terror group, sponsors free military training camps for kids between the ages of six and 16 to indoctrinate the next generation in the fine art of "popular resistance."

The target is Israeli Jews, citizens and soldiers and the kids appear to love it. They dress up like jihadists, smearing paint on their faces and toting rifles, guns, knives, and pipes and whatever else simulates battles.

They practice rocket and mortar launches, learn how to handle AK-47 automatic rifles, study how to build and throw firebombs, how to throw rocks effectively, and generally how to be good soldiers for the cause of Islam.

They're taught there's nothing more honorable than training for "holy jihad" against the Jewish infidels and that dying as shahids (martyrs) is life's highest attainment.

These kids won't hesitate to tell you they aspire to fight the Zionist enemy and kill them wherever and however they can. From toddlers on up, they're indoctrinated to hate and kill by their families, teachers, goverment and spiritual leaders.

Ynet quoted one kindergarten-aged child who said, "I love the resistance and the martyrs and Palestine, and I want to blow myself up on Zionists and kill them on a bus in a suicide bombing."
