Hamas to U.N.: Don’t teach Holocaust
"JERUSALEM (JTA) -- Hamas said it will stop the United Nations from teaching Palestinian children in Gaza about the Holocaust.
The history of the Holocaust is set to become part of a human rights curriculum in Gaza schools run by the U.N. Relief and Works Agency that are attended by more than 200,000 Palestinian children, The Guardian reported"
It's for the best, for Hamas, Holocaust studies are a how to guide; a wish list of perverse desire. It would be like like giving stories of sexually abused children to pedophiles in order to teach them the horror.
The fact is, the government of Israel wants peace. Years of documented and leaked political negotiations and other treaties prove that the government of Israel wants peace. Almost all but a fringe element of the Israeli populace want peace. Most Israelis believe peace is possible.
Does Hamas want peace?
If they want peace let them behave in a normal fashion as a normal government, which includes not kidnapping, Gilad Shalit for example, and holding them without any semblance of human rights.
Here is what Hamas told the UN:
"We cannot agree to a program that is intended to poison the minds of our children," said a statement from Hamas' Ministry for Refugee Affairs. "Holocaust studies in refugee camps is a contemptible plot and serves the Zionist entity with a goal of creating a reality and telling stories in order to justify acts of slaughter against the Palestinian people."
If they don't want peace I would rather they fear Israel than pity Israel. Let them raise their children on the lies about Israeli slaughter and atrocities. Let them think Israelis are monsters. Let them teach their children to be so afraid of Israel that fear drives them to make peace.
