Gaza Kindergarten Promotes Jihadi Graduation

A Gaza kindergarten celebrated its graduation with a show of mock violence towards Israelis, YnetNews reports.
"I love the resistance and the martyrs and Palestine, and I want to blow myself up on Zionists and kill them on a bus in a suicide bombing," said one of the kindergarteners participating in the event, which showed the children taking up arms to defeat Israel and liberate Palestinian prisoners.
"It is our obligation to educate the children to love the resistance, Palestine and Jerusalem, so they will recognize the importance of Palestine and who its enemy is," said the director of the Palestinian-Islamic Jihad-run kindergarten.
Although Palestinian rhetoric toward Israel remains generally violent, vigilant monitoring by the Palestinian Media Watch (PMW) has embarrassed international funders of local extremism.
PMW revealed that the Burj Luq-Luq Social Center, funded by the United Nations, used the message "hold machine guns, not cigarettes" to promote an anti-smoking campaign.
It also exposed funding from the European Union, through the European Commission Humanitarian Aid Office, for the pro-terrorism Palestinian charity PYALARA. On its weekly Palestinian Authority TV program for youth, the NGO glorified the bodies of recently returned suicide bombers as "the greatest role models for us" and "more honored than all of us."
As a result of the PMW's efforts, the website of Burj Luq-Luq's website was closed and PYALARA faces an investigation by one of its donors, the charity Save the Children UK.
