Children learn how to shoot rifles to kill Jews.

Hamas, a member of the Palestinian Unity Government, has published photo proof of the terrorist organization committing war crimes by training thousands of teenagers in “military youth camps.”The Hamas version of the Boy Scouts dresses the children in military uniforms, preaches sermons of hate against Israel and for the “love of death,” and teaches skills they will need to lead them there, such as using assault weapons

The United Nations Protocol to the Convention on the Rights of the Child on the Involvement of Children in Armed Conflict (OPAC) specifically prohibits soldiers under the age of 18.


The Palestinian Authority has signed the Protocol, but it also has signed a bunch of other agreements, such as the Oslo Accords, that are as meaningful as pledges by its terrorists who signed on the dotted line on Israeli documents that they would not return to terror after being released.

Hamas does not have money to build homes for Gazans but there is plenty of cash to help the younger generation learn how to throw grenades and use Kalashnikov rifles.

A Hamas officer told The Washington Post the camps help keep the children off the streets..

“The camps are designed to answer the demands of the youth — to do something.” like training to annihilate Israel.

Hamas allowed one of the newspaper’s reporter into the camp for the graduation ceremonies.

Ahmed Ismail, 16, was quoted as saying:

I have received training on using weapons, especially rifles, and climbing on ropes, marching, shooting, rocket-propelled grenades and mortars. We also had practical training and got to shoot the Kalashnikovs.

I wish I could join Qassam Brigades now. I want to fight Israel. I want to kick them out of our land. I am ready now.

An Israeli officer briefed the reporter in Israel and said, “Hamas is making plenty of rockets” and will be armed to the teeth in a few months. staffed in a few months.

“On the military side, they’re ready to go today,” he added.

Hamas youth and Israel face the same future — war, unless  the new generation one day realizes their real enemies are the preachers of hate.

  1. And the ICC wants to investigate Israel for war crimes. When will we wake up and clear out this insanity once and for all. Iran can announce they want to wipe Israel off the map but the US is afraid of ending the negotiations with them. Why doesn't Israel state they want to wipe Gaza off the map, and have the US "cowtow" to them. Disgusting.

  2. In Israel, a teenager attends school, becomes educated, and goes to college. In the Arab world, a teenager, learns how to kill and to die for Allah. Is it any wonder, the Arabs have a lousy economy? Hatred of Jew's was supposed to be eradicated in the Oslo Accords. Before Israel makes any more concessions, let the Arabs start obeying what they agreed to in 1994.

  3. Those that train children in hate ,and military techniques and those that turn a blind eye to the hamas military summer training camps for children have lost all moral authority to elevate childrens deaths and injuries in areas of military conflict .

    No Child should lose his/her childhood innocence to learn Hate and become a soldier and a tool for those that are bent on a violent cause…

    it would not be a stretch to suggest that a parent that sends a child to these camps would allow them to be used as shields ..the camp preps the child for this ….to do so is evil and sad ….there are a number of videos that show various elements of this training ….this training also extends to Palestinian schools and children's TV programs

  4. If it's war crimes you're looking for, you need look no further than Netanyahu. Why don't you? Where's your outrage that people are living in the ruins of Gaza without homes, heat or electricity? People praise the Jewish Resistance and Uprising in the Warsaw Ghetto, but call Gazans "terrorists" and "criminals" for trying to do what little they can to defend themselves. It is high time to stop the Zionist juggernaut.

  5. "No Child should lose his/her childhood innocence to learn Hate and become a soldier and a tool for those that are bent on a violent cause." Do you include, sir, the 500+ CHILDREN that Netanyahu and Israel indiscriminately killed this past summer? Do you include the five children who recently froze to death in Gaza because they had no heat or electricity?
