If the leaders of Hamas in Aza are to be believed, they have recently “graduated” 15,000 children from their terror training summer camps. Not only is this a staggering number of children indoctrinated with racist poison, its implications should leave no one wondering what the future of such camps will mean for the security and safety of all Israelis and even the Gazans themselves.
As near as I can recall, the United Nations has a strong presence in Aza. They do control eight camps for thousands of Palestinians. Clearly, there is a powerful disconnect between the “mission” of the UN in Aza just as there is in the West Bank and what is happening in both areas under the very noses of the UN. This is a grave situation whereas the largest organization promoting peaceful co-existence in the world cannot even prevent Hamas from spreading anti-Israel and anti-Semitic glorification by the thousands. This blaring failure by the United Nations must be addressed and addressed promptly.
The terror factories in Aza churning out future suicide bombers, soldier kidnappers and Israeli citizen deaths cannot be ignored any longer. Since Hamas appears to hold millions of dollars, if not billions, in aid money stolen or openly given to Hamas by Qatar, the EU, the US or Russia, the best way to encourage them to close down these camps is by hitting them where they live ˗˗ in their bank accounts. Israel should block any and all monies headed for Aza. It isn’t like we do not know how to do that or where they are hiding their lucre. Hamas should be made to realize they are abusing their children whom they constantly hold up to the international community as being deprived due to the non-existent “occupation.” The Internet is primed with images of suffering Palestinian children, but Hamas never tells journalists how they got that way because why kill the golden goose?
Insofar as it is part of the mandate of the UN to look after the “refugees,” and since it is obviously the case that they are not interested in doing so, Israel should show them the door. I am sure they can find plenty of other groups of people to “rescue” such as the millions of Syrian citizens who now reside outside Syria. The UN has failed miserably in its mandate. It is time they admit it and move elsewhere. There is simply no excuse for the Palestinian leadership to continue abusing innocent children and continually using them as hostages in their lust for violence and self-aggrandizing greed.
I understand that the voices of “moderate” Palestinians is often stiffled by both Hamas and Fatah leadership, but the spectacle of thousands of children each year graduation from terror camps should be stopped immediately and the parents of such children should be held to account for their own actions in allowing their children to become terror targets. No one who claims to love their child would ever let them enter one of these training centers preparing to become a future terrorist with a price on their head and a target for an IDF raid. This abuse of innocent children is an obscenity which must not be continued. It is also time that the UN stop being an accessory to murder and mayhem. The open hostility of UNRHA members towards the State of Israel must be exorcised or there will never be a peaceful co-existence between ourselves and the Palestinians. Children are supposed to be a nation’s treasure and future. Abusing them for political and financial gain is a disgusting habit that must be broken or these children will not live long enough to be either of those things.
