Hamas kids taught about ‘evil Zionists’

Friday, May 12th, 2006

Peace will never come as long as the children are taught to hate. If Israel is so bad, why are their children not taught to hate the pali’s?

The latest edition of Hamas’ children’s website includes comic strips encouraging hatred of Israelis, who are defined as “evil Zionists.”
Hamas, officially considered a terrorist organization by the U.S. government, now governs the Palestinian Authority.
The content of the site, Al-Fateh.net, was publicize by Israel-based monitor Palestinian Media Watch.
One strip features two boys who come upon supposed toys in the street.
“Don’t take any of them!” warns one boy. “These are not toys, but booby-trapped bombs that will explode in the hands of those who touch them. They are placed here by the evil Zionists to kill innocent Palestinian children.”
The next panel states: “These are dangerous toys that are called booby-traps, placed by the evil ones to kill the people of our nation, who suffered from them and fight a jihad to drive them out of our beloved country.”
Another story on the website describes an art class in which the teacher asks the children to draw a picture entitled: “When the sky is angry.”
One boy draws a rainstorm and another lightning. But the teacher has special praise for the drawing of one boy:
Says the teacher: “Look what your friend Az-Adin drew. He drew the sky raining stones on the Zionists. Everyone clap hands for your friend Az-Adin. We all clapped hands warmly for Az-Adin for his drawing that was inspired by the Palestinian stone revolution.”
Another comic strip has a female teacher dressed in traditional Muslim guard instructing her students about the “Zionist thieves.”
As WorldNetDaily reported, Hamas’ children’s website was launched in 2002, encouraging kids to follow the example of terrorist suicide bombers.

Bill barring ‘mom,’ ‘dad’ from texts passes

Friday, May 12th, 2006

Well, we guessed that was going to happen. Now it’s up to the governor to put a stop to it.

The California state Senate today passed a bill that removes sex-specific terms such as “mom” and “dad” from textbooks and requires students to learn about the contributions homosexuals have made to society.
The bill, approved 22-15, would prevent textbooks, teaching materials, instruction and “school-sponsored activities” from reflecting adversely on anyone based on sexual orientation or actual or perceived gender.
A companion bill has yet to go through the legislative process in the state Assembly, but observers believe it likely will pass. It’s unclear whether or not Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger would sign the measure if it reaches his desk.
Responding to an argument of the bill’s defenders, Randy Thomasson, president of Campaign for Children and Families, charged it isn’t “about ‘safety’ or ‘discrimination,’ it’s about leading children into sexual confusion and destroying their respect for the natural family.”
Another opponent, Karen England of the Capitol Resource Institute, says the legislation “seeks to indoctrinate innocent children caught in the tug-of-war between traditional families and the outrageous homosexual agenda.”
“The state Senate is so far out of touch with California families that it is beyond alarming,” said England. “The traditional family is under attack and this is a latest – and most outrageous – attempt to corrupt the minds of our children.”
England said school districts also would likely have to do away with dress codes and “accommodate transsexuals on girl-specific or boy- specific sports teams.”
Sponsored by Democratic Sen. Sheila Kuehl – a lesbian actress best known for playing Zelda in “The Many Loves of Dobie Gillis” in the 1960s – the legislation would add “gender” (actual or perceived) and “sexual orientation” to the law that prohibits California public schools from having textbooks, teaching materials, instruction or “school-sponsored activities” that reflect adversely upon people based on characteristics like race, creed and handicap.
“We’ve been working since 1995 to try to improve the climate in schools for gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender kids, as well as those kids who are just thought to be gay, because there is an enormous amount of harassment and discrimination at stake,” Kuehl explained. “Teaching materials mostly contain negative or adverse views of us, and that’s when they mention us at all.”
“In textbooks, it’s as if there’s no gay people in California at all, so forget about it,” she added.

Re-Post: No Consequences by Cox & Forkum

Friday, May 12th, 2006


Cox and Forkum have an interesting article about the air to Hamas.

The Palestinians elect a terrorist group to lead their government, and this is the consequence:
From ABC News: Israel releasing money for Palestinians.
Israel has agreed to release tens of millions of dollars it withheld from the Palestinians after Hamas ascended to power and is considering easing restrictions on the movement of goods between Israel and the Gaza Strip, officials said Thursday. …
Israel stopped transferring some $55 million in tax and customs revenues it collects monthly on behalf of the Palestinians shortly after Hamas won January parliamentary elections.
The withholding of those funds, coupled with a cutoff in aid from the U.S. and European Union, has left the Palestinians broke and two months behind in paying salaries to government workers who provide for about a third of the people in the West Bank and Gaza.
The potential humanitarian crisis is fueling international alarm.
Later in the article:
Outside U.N. headquarters in Gaza City Thursday, about 40 children protested what they called an economic siege. Several stripped down to their underwear and stood on U.S. and Israeli flags.
Is that the way to ask for help? It illustrates how morally inverted the whole issue has become. And the Palestinians don’t just stand on the flags, they stab them too.
The article goes on to quote the protest’s organizer: “The world should act to end this collective punishment.” Yeah, right. Like Hamas will ever stop its “collective punishment” of Israelis.
But Israel is not the only one rolling over. A Reuters report indicates that America might be, too: Quartet agrees to channel aid to Palestinians.
The quartet of Middle East peace brokers agreed on Tuesday on a way to channel aid to the Palestinians for a trial period to ease a financial squeeze on the new government following the election of Hamas.
The group of international mediators — the United States, Russia, the European Union and the United Nations — issued a statement after a day of talks in which Egypt, Jordan and Saudi Arabia warned of a civil war if the Hamas-led Palestinian Authority was left to collapse. …
The move came after the World Bank warned on Monday that the Palestinian Authority could face a breakdown in law and order and basic services unless foreign donors step in to pay the salaries of about 165,000 civil servants.
The United States, which initially opposed a European proposal to channel aid to the Palestinians via an international mechanism such as the World Bank, said any such move would have to be limited in scope and [have a] mechanism so aid would not reach the Hamas-led Palestinian Authority. …
The European Union will take the lead in working out the details but has suggested in the past that the World Bank could be a suitable vehicle for getting aid to the Palestinians.
