According to Arab and Palestinian media, 100 thousand children and teenagers participated in Hamas camps this year.
The budget of these camps is estimated to be 2 Million Dollars. The youths were guided by 1,500 counselors that went through special training courses.
A marketing campaign of the Al-Aqsa channel of the Hamas and a special internet site encouraged participation of children in these camps.
The children and teenagers in the summer camps undergo semi military training. The pictures and commercials published this year and last summer showed that part of the curriculum included firearm practices and grenades dismantling as well as military drills for the children, while holding life-like weapons.
And this happens while Israel provides its Palestinian prisoners with an education system where they can earn degrees. But you won’t hear about that on a college campus.
