On July 3, 2019, the Palestinian Authority’s Wujud Center of the Higher Council for Youth and Sports uploaded to its Facebook page a video about a summer camp that it was running in Tulkarm in the West Bank. Subtitles and all text were translated and the video clip was downloaded from the internet by MEMRI, the Middle East Media Research Institute.
“The general goal of the camp is to provide a patriotic education,” said Ihsan Hattab, the camp director, who adds it is run by the Society for Children with Autism and Learning Disabilities. Hattab said that 25 special needs children ages 13-15 are mainstreamed into the camp population along with 100 “healthy” Palestinian Authority children.
Yaman, a young boy participating in the program, said that in the first day of the program, they discussed the Deal of the Century and that the following day, they tore up and burned pictures of the American flag and U.S. President Donald Trump.
The video shows young children tearing up and burning the pictures and stepping on pictures of the American flag and of President Donald Trump with horns.
