Indoctrination Into Jihad And "Resistance" In Gaza Kindergartens

MEMRI: Indoctrination Into Jihad And "Resistance" In Gaza Kindergartens
An article on the website of the Al-Quds Brigades documents how children in Gaza kindergartens are indoctrinated to jihad and resistance. The Al-Quds Brigades were founded as the military wing of Palestinian Islamic Jihad, a designated U.S. terrorist organization.[1] In their end-of-year ceremony, the children, dressed in uniforms, act out scenes of fighting jihad, of suffering humiliation and torture in Israeli prisons, etc. The photos that accompany the article also show the children performing military drills, holding a funeral for martyrs lying in coffins, and standing in front of a stage-set representing Al-Aqsa. The article explains that the children of Gaza "are raised on the love of jihad, of resistance and of Palestine, and on the massacres and crimes of the Zionists." A kindergarten teacher says that her aim is to raise the kids to be "jihad fighters and commanders who will defend the soil of Palestine and Jerusalem," and a little boy says that when he grows up, he wants to fire rockets at the Zionists and carry out a martyrdom operation on a bus.

It should be noted that the Al-Quds Brigades website is, which is hosted by CLOUDFLARE in San Francisco, CA. MEMRI was able to pinpoint the server's location to San Francisco through a variety of techniques, including determining the site's IP address.
