11-year-old Muhammad, Gaza
One of the benefits enjoyed by the Palestinians as a result of Israel’s withdrawal from Gaza, other than freeing up space for a “400 acre tourism, entertainment and movie production facility” is that it also frees up space for terrorism training. And since it’s summer time, and those pesky kids keep getting in the way, why not kill two birds with one stone and also provide the lovely kinderlach with some wholesome outdoor activities to keep them busy and teach them some lessons in civics, Gaza style? Case in point is 11-year-old Muhammad, pictured above, who, along with dozens of boys between the ages of nine and twelve, joined the big kids in fun, healthy activities like “…exercises in raiding Israel’s border with Gaza and kidnapping of Israeli troops; shooting practice using automatic rifles and rocket-propelled grenades, or RPGs; and explosives testing.”
“The old (Jewish) settlements gave the Palestinian resistance enough space to have big trainings. We never had this space and these possibilities when the Zionists were in Gaza,” Abu Muhammad, a senior Gaza-based leader of the Islamic Jihad terrorist organization, told WND in an interview… “The resistance is having a second benefit from chasing the Jews from Gaza. [This weekend’s exercise] was proof of the big victory, using land they were occupying for training in preparing us for our next great victory,” Abu Muhammad said… Committees terror group spokesman Muhammad Abdel-Al, also known as Abu Abir, told WND yesterday his group was not brainwashing children… “We are not educating them on hatred. This is our strategy â€“ to turn all the Palestinian people into weapons of resistance,” Abdel-Al said when questioned about his group’s use of boys.
Doesn’t that make you all warm and fuzzy inside?
