Summer Fun at Camp Gaza!

It is summer time and time for fun and sun, even in Palestine!

But, what ever happened to those good old fashioned arts and crafts workshops?

Some Palestinian parents in the Gaza Strip are up in arms over Hamas summer camps which are being used to train children on the use of weapons and other military equipment.

The families on Tuesday also accused Hamas of inciting their children against Israel and Fatah. Some of the families decided to pull their children out of the camps after discovering the goals of the camp. Most of the children who are participating in the current Hamas summer camps are between the ages of eight and 17.
Of course, Fatah, when running their own summer camps, would never have thought of doing such things.
In the past, Fatah also used summer camps for teaching schoolchildren how to use weapons and for inciting against Israel and the US.
