Hamas Summer Camps Train Next Generation Terrorists
Arutz Sheva ^ | 12/6/11 | Gavriel Queennan

Hamas is reporting record turnouts for its summer camps for children in 2011.

The 'summer camps,' combining Islamic indoctrination, paramilitary training, and social activities are set to begin again this year as United Nation’s summer camps, considered competition by Hamas, are being openly denigrated by jihadists.

Children and adolescents are an important target demographic for Hamas, from which its future army of terrorists will be recruited. Summer camps are an important means for indoctrinating Gaza's youth with Hamas' jihadist ideology.

In 2010 Hamas ran camps for an estimated 100,000 campers, a number similar to 2009. The Islamic Jihad terror group ran 51 camps with 10,000 participating boys and girls.

Hamas spokesman Ismail Radwan reported the objectives of the camps were to raise a generation of children with 'genuine Islamic values.'

"Children working for the interests of their homeland and to educate them to the culture of the Islamic faith so they will remember their goals, including Jerusalem and the prisoners," Radwan said

In addition to indoctrination, Hamas terrorists give children paramilitary training. Banners are hung on the walls with slogans extolling jihad and 'death for the sake of Allah.'

Other prominent motifs for this year are solidarity with Turkey in connection with the Mavi Marmara flotilla, a call for the release of Hamas prisoners (campers carried posters with their pictures) and organized expressions of hatred for Israel and the Jewish people.

UNRWA Programs Attacked

The United Nations Relief and Works Agency summer camp system hosted 250,000 children and adolescents in 2010. This year, as with previous years, the UN camps were harassed by jihadist terrorists.

Are any of these Hamas run camps supported by US taxpayers or funded by the UN (indirectly by US taxpayers).

My summer camp featured swimming and horseback riding and mountain hikes and crafts and nature studies. I must have been taking a nap when they were teaching us how to make IEDs.

Well, if they aren’t, I’m sure the EU will pick up the slack.

And what charming camp songs they sing:

101 mortars with shells near the fence

There was an old lady who decided to die

The other day, I saw a kitten (and strangled it)

72 Virgins in Heaven for Me (what was I supposed to do with them again?)

The most dangerous thing I recall from Boy Scout summer camp was starting a fire without matches.

Rub two sticks of dynamite together, and don’t forget to insert an adequate length of primer cord.

The cult of Islam reveals itself again as the Satanic trinity of hate, lies and death. Islam will destroy itself.

I bet they make their s’mores with plastic explosives instead of marshmallows.

Well there are a few camps in Maine. The only one I am familiar with is Camp Roosevelt, the Boy Scout camp for the Katahdin BSA district.

“Are any of these Hamas run camps supported by US taxpayers or funded by the UN (indirectly by US taxpayers)”.

Review the OMB Report requested by Senator Tom Coburn that detailed in 2006 the following agencies of the U.S. Govt funneled $5.3 BILLION to the UN.

Department’s of Agriculture, Commerce, Defense, Energy Homeland Security, Interior, Justice, Labor, Transportation, Treasury, State, EPA, NASA and others

Does that answer your question?

I wonder how much of Obama’s free money goes to pay for this.

I’m not sure. Most of that money is stolen by the upper echelon.

‘genuine Islamic values.’ is code for lack of morals and want of the destruction of the world’s sole super power. Why we allow such flagrant acts of terrorist training to go unchecked is infuriating!

Hard to win when their side is, since a young age ingrained with hatred and pushing for continuance and we hear nothing but propaganda and nonsense from our media. Their morale is growing, while the wind is being taken from our sails. Horrifying.

Well, it’s like their version of “vacation bible school”.

They probably watch “Dora the Exploder” cartoons.
