Kindergarten graduation, 'Palestinian' style

I know that many of you have children and grandchildren who are graduating from Kindergarten this month. Well, the 'Palestinians' living in the 'largest concentration camp in the world' also have graduation this month. Their graduation looks just like your offspring's graduation, as you are about to see below:
Similarly to Hamas, the Palestinian Islamic Jihad (PIJ) operates charitable societies in the Gaza Strip, one of which is the society of Dar al-Huda [“House of Righteousness”, that is, a house which follows the traditions of Islam]. That charitable societies mostly runs kindergartens, but also youth centers, clinics, libraries, and assistance programs for orphans, people in need, and the children of prisoners held in Israeli jails.

The society is headed by Muhammad Abd al-Jawad Fura, a preacher who serves as a PIJ leader in the Gaza Strip. On June 3, 2009, a website associated with the PIJ (Pal Today) published photographs from a graduation ceremony display of kindergarten children organized by the Dar al-Huda society (kindergartens are the society's main focus of activity). The ceremony was held at Rashad al-Shawa Center in Gaza City . A show put on during the ceremony (similarly to activities held in Hamas-associated kindergartens in recent years) featured kindergarten children dressed in uniform and carrying (obviously plastic) arms confronting and killing IDF soldiers.

The children perform a “victory” dance around corpses of IDF soldiers lying on the ground (center), with Israeli mini-flags on their uniforms. The children carry flags of Palestine and a model of the Dome of the Rock (symbolizing the liberation of Jerusalem)

I thought about adding photos from one or more of my own kids' kindergarten graduations, but I figure that you all get the idea aleady.

There's a detailed report - with pictures - on recent uses of children in Hamas and Palestinian Islamic Jihad activities in Gaza (from which I took these photos) here.

Its sick. The idea that children of a tender age can be taught to love death would occur to no one else. A mere look at the photos should tell people the other side won't be ready for peace any time soon.

What else could go wrong indeed
