Laurence Simon finds UNICEF paying for a Palestinian children’s camp named after a suicide bomber.
The Palestinian Authority [PA] has named a summer camp for girls after the first woman suicide bomber – Wafa Idris. Idris murdered 1 and injured over 150 in Jerusalem, when she blew herself up on January 27, 2002. This is a continuation of PA policy of naming educational programs, schools, and summer camps after terrorists, including, suicide bombers.
The camp received UN funding through UNICEF.
The Palestinian government is fostering a culture of death where the highest aspiration is to kill oneself and take a few Jews with you. Such an ideology makes peace impossible – how can you make peace with those that your government tells you are less than human and must be killed at all costs? Exactly where does such an ideology leave room for compromise or negotiation.
The short answer is that it doesn’t, and as long as the Palestinian Authority and those who abet them continue to support this culture of death, a lasting peace will be impossible.
UPDATE: Those who want to support organizations dedicated to saving lives rather than ending them would do well to support Magen David Adom in this year’s Blogathon. Laurence Simon, Meryl Yourish, and Michele of A Small Victory are also contributing to purchase a new ambulance for MDA.
