The Palestinian Islamic Jihad in the Gaza Strip Continues Inculcating
Kindergarten Children with Support for Terrorism and Hatred of Israel
Published on: 13/06/2012 Type: Article Display put on by pupils on their
last day at a PIJ-affiliated kindergarten in the Gaza Strip
1. The website of the Jerusalem Brigades, the military-terrorist wing of
the Palestinian Islamic Jihad, recently posted pictures from the
end-of-the-year party held at one of its affiliated kindergartens in the
Gaza Strip. The children put on a display in which they pretended to be
armed Palestinian terrorist operatives, Palestinian prisoners and Israelis.
2. The pictures were taken by a correspondent working for the Jerusalem
Brigades "combat information." He interviewed the kindergarten teacher, who
emphasized the need to teach the children the ideas of "resistance" and
jihad [i.e., anti-Israeli terrorism]. The correspondent also interviewed one
of the children, who expressed his determination to join the PIJ and die as
a shaheed. …"When I grow up," he said, "I want to get on a bus with lots of
Zionists and blow myself up in a suicide bombing attack and kill them..."
(Jerusalem Brigades website and Hamas' PALDF forum. In the meantime, the
PALDF website removed the pictures.)
3. Such ceremonies at kindergartens in the Gaza Strip have been
customarily held for years by Hamas, the PIJ and other terrorist
organizations. They all regard young children as an important target
audience for inculcating the ideology of the "resistance culture" and jihad
[i.e., terrorism], and customarily exploit kindergarten end-of-the-year
parties for putting on displays whosecentral themes are terrorism and hatred
4. According to the website of the Jerusalem Brigades, the Israeli media
had reported on the ceremony, indicating that Israel feared the so-called
"resistance culture" [i.e., the culture of brainwashing Palestinian society
with an ideology of terrorism, violence and hatred for Israel] (Jerusalem
Brigades website, June 13, 2012) .
