ITIC: Summer Camps in the Gaza Strip

Posted: August 10, 2011 by Rex Brynen in Gaza, UNRWA

The Meir Amit Intelligence and Terrorism Information Center (ITIC) has recently published a piece on the annual summer camps competition in Gaza between Hamas and UNRWA. With regard to the latter it notes:

The UNRWA summer camps emphasize social activity and promotion of such universal values as peace and coexistence, without the political-religious indoctrination and paramilitary training prevalent in Hamas’ camps. Consequently, these summer camps were once again harassed by radical Islamic elements that consider them competitors for the hearts and minds of the younger generation; also, UNRWA’s summer camps are accused of “corrupting” Palestinian children and adolescents.

Given that ITIC reliably mirrors the predominant analytical views within the Israeli intelligence community, the report should probably be required remedial reading for the UNRWA-is-evil advocacy crowd who view the Agency as “an entity whose raison d’etre involves the genocide of Jews.”
