Horror: Hamas accuses UNRWA of trying to teach Holocaust; UNRWA denies it

This story is rich.

If this weren't so sadly typical it would almost be funny. But sadly, it illustrates everything that's wrong with the 'Palestinians' and their narrative. You see, they're the only people in the world who have ever been persecuted. So they don't want to hear about anyone else. They're just not capable of seeing the other side of any story.

Hamas is accusing UNRWA of trying to teach about the Holocaust in its Gaza Strip schools. Hamas refers to the Holocaust as "a lie invented by the Zionists." And UNRWA - which ought to be teaching the Holocaust in the schools - denies that it would do anything so horrible. Because UNRWA is there to serve the 'Palestinians' and perpetuate their victimhood status.
Calling the Nazi genocide of the Jews "a lie invented by the Zionists," Hamas wrote in an open letter to a senior UN official that he should withdraw plans for a new history book in the UN schools.

A spokesman for the United Nations Relief and Works Agency (UNRWA), which educates some 200,000 refugee children in Gaza, said the Holocaust was not on its current curriculum. He would not comment on Hamas's statement that it was about to change, Reuters said.

Hamas said it believed UNRWA was about to start using a text for 13-year-olds that included a chapter on the Holocaust.

In an open letter to local UNRWA chief John Ging, the movement's Popular Committees for Refugees said: "We refuse to let our children study a lie invented by the Zionists."

UNRWA spokesman Adnan Abu Hasna said: "There is no mention of the Holocaust in the current syllabus." Asked if UNRWA planned to change that, he declined to comment.
Of course, if the 'Palestinians' weren't so busy deluding themselves (with Barack Obama's approval) that the Jews' only claim to the Land of Israel is because of the Holocaust, maybe they wouldn't be so hostile to learning what can happen when man is inhuman to his fellow man. Maybe they wouldn't be so closed to learning that they are not the only ones to suffer in the world.

On the other hand, it does sound like maybe UNRWA is planning to teach the Holocaust, doesn't it? Those responses are a little bit cagey. Or maybe they're just toying with Hamas. Like they did with these toys:

What could go wrong?

Hamas can't be expected to have any one challenge its lunatic view of Jews and Israel, now can it? Palestinians think no one else has a history of suffering like they do and if one exists, it doesn't deserve to be heard. Hamas has no patience for the truth.

What else could go wrong indeed
