Masked gunmen from an Islamic group torched a UN-run summer camp for children and teens in Gaza on Sunday.
This was reported by Army Radio, who quoted the top UN aid official in Gaza said.
John Ging says the assailants tied up the guard early Sunday, burned tents and vandalized bathrooms. UN officials say the attackers left behind three bullets and a note threatening to kill Ging and others unless the UN cancels its activities for some 250,000Gaza children.
Two days before the incident, the previously unknown «The Free of the Homeland» group issued a statement criticizing the camp’s organizer, the United Nations Relief and Works Agency (UNRWA), for «teaching schoolgirls fitness, dancing and immorality»
UNRWA responded to the destruction, saying Gazan youths suffer from heightened stress, and need opportunities like this summer camp, calling the perpetrators of the act, «people who hate life and children».
Gaza’s Hamas rulers have set up rival camps. Some Hamas leaders have also railed against UN camps.
During the past month alone, five Gazans have been executed with formal sanction from the Strip’s Hamas rulers, three of them shot to death in front of the families of their victims just last Tuesday. Their bloodied bodies were then unceremoniously dumped at the local Shifa Hospital.
Hamdi Shakour, of Gaza’s harassed Palestinian Center for Human Rights, was quoted in AP as branding the executions «the worst violation of the right to life»
The emergence of Islamic despotism in Gaza has been commented on by Arabic publications, including the London-based dailies Al-Hayat and Al-Quds al-Arabi.

On of the issues with Hamas is their holocaust denial. In countries like Germany and Austria, such denial is a serious criminal offense
The United Nations are not allow to teach about Holocaust, in all kind of UNESCO teachings activities. Different educational programs in Gaza is funded with tens of millions of USD by the UN.
So tax payers money from Germany and Norway is used to fund Holocaust deniers in UN Uniforms. International air workers, that contribute to Jew-hate.
That a UN-youth camp have been torched because of«immoral teachings», just underline what kind of rabid, evil and insane governance there is in Gaza. Radical Islam has its base in the same fascism as the ideology as Nazi-Germany. Get rid of justice, democracy and human rights. And kill the Jews.
