«This summer, more than 120,000 Palestinian children attended Hamas-run summer camps, that focused not only on Islamic teachings, but also on semi-military training with toy guns».
This is a statement in a report named «Reality Contradicts New Hamas Spin», made by Matthew Levitt and Stephanie Papa. They both work for Washington Institute for Near East Policy.
«Despite talk of a ceasefire and pursuit of a peaceful resolution to the Arab-Israeli conflict, Hamas continues to engage in terrorist activities. Shooting attacks are still common along the border between Israel and Gaza»
Even as Hamas advances its public-relations blitz for tactical gains, the group continues to advance its strategic goals through ongoing terrorist activities, robust radicalization, and the election of militant hardliners to leadership positions.

To use Children as soldiers is not only a cruel and satanic activity. Its also a violation of the United Nation charters on Children’s Rights. Hamas could of course care less. They are going ahed with their vision of destroying Israel, either the World like it or not.
To educate 120.000 children in use of weapons and explosive, is a huge task that requires a lot of resources and manpower. If you have no answer for why the Gazans live a pitiful life in poverty, just reflect on what their money are being used for.
In stead of building schools and other social basic infrastructure, Hamas lead the Gazans into a future of more extreme pain and sufferings, bases on an islamic agenda of ruling by murdering and terror. This is the tragic state of affairs in Gaza. Hamas is the «Peace partner» that the International community demands Israel have to make a compromise with.
