An Islamist school in the Palestinian Authority territory of Gaza teaches children as young as 5 the techniques of urban guerrilla warfare, jihad against Jewish settlers and martyrdom missions to kill Zionists.
The school — called Islamic University, or Mosque — is so proud of its programs for some 4,000 students that it boasts about them on its public, Arab-language website, www.jislamia.org — a site well-illustrated with photos of small children in full-dress battle uniforms.
On the website’s “news” page, and article, translated from Arabic, describes a graduation ceremony for elementary-level schoolchildren who learn, beginning at the age of 5, to covet the city of Jerusalem, learn more about suicide bombers as “martyrs” and to hate “Zionist criminals.”
…Mohammed Hussein Nasr Alla, secretary-general of the Iranian-backed, Lebanese-based terrorist organization Hezbollah, has visited the school and addressed the children. The terrorist leader told the children they “will never have to face the Zionists alone for the Hezbollah is with them forever.”
…What’s the goal of this institution? “The staff hopes it will produce a generation of children able to kick the Zionists out of Palestine and liberate the Palestinians. ”

The Palestinian journalists union Monday banned journalists from photographing Palestinian children carrying weapons or taking part in activities by militant groups, saying the pictures harm the Palestinian cause.
The Palestinian Journalists Syndicate also called on Palestinian factions and their military wings to stop using children in their activities.
Children carrying weapons or dressed up as suicide bombers have been frequently seen at rallies and marches in the West Bank and the Gaza Strip during the nearly two years of the current conflict.
Israel has charged that Palestinians are misusing children as pawns in the conflict; the Palestinians counter that Israeli forces target children with gunfire during riots.
Recently six children armed with M16 and Kalashnikov rifles took part in a pro-Iraqi rally in Rafah in the southern Gaza Strip.
Tawfik Abu Khousa, deputy chairman of the syndicate, said such pictures harmed the image of the Palestinian people and the credibility of Palestinian journalists.
"We have decided to forbid taking any footage of armed children, because we consider that as a clear violation of the rights of children and for the negative effects these pictures have on the Palestinian people," he said.
In the statement issued by the syndicate it said footage of armed children served "the interests of Israel and its propaganda against the Palestinian people." The union threatened to boycott militant groups who use children and masked men in their activities.
In a statement, the Foreign Press Association expressed "deep concern" over the decision by the syndicate and its threats of sanctions against journalists, local and foreign, who disregard the ban.
"While we share the expressed desire to defend the rights of children, limiting coverage of legitimate news events and elements of stories is not the proper way to achieve this goal," it said.
