Summer is more than half over, but there’s still time to enroll your kids in camp. Experts on child-rearing advise choosing a camp that imparts useful skills.

Such as the use of knives and guns to eradicate the enemy. Which, if you happen to live in or near Gaza, are featured activities (along, presumably, with swimming and arts and crafts) at the Pioneers of Liberation summer camps.

According to the Middle East Media Research Center (MEMRI), the facilities are run by the ‘Izz Al-Din Al-Qassam Brigades (aka, the al-Quds militant group), which constitutes Hamas’s military wing.

The group has trained upward of 30,000 children this summer to carry out terrorist attacks just like the grownups.

Campers received “firearms training and other military training, civil defense exercises, and lessons in religion and in battle heritage,” according to their brochure, which also notes:

[T]he goal of the camps is to stoke the embers of jihad among the generation of liberation, to inculcate Islamic values and to prepare the army of victory for liberating Palestine.

The shorter version of this message is “Kill Israelis.”

MEMRI provides a TV clip advertising the benefits of the camp for teenagers, which is reproduced below.
