    DAMASCUS, (PIC)-- The refugees department at the Hamas movement has denounced UNRWA for imposing certain curricula on Palestinian children studying in its schools in the West Bank.

    It charged in a statement on Tuesday that UNRWA had violated the principles upon which it was established, explaining that instead of aiding Palestinian refugees it was smearing history of the Palestine cause and acquitting the “Zionist enemy” of the crimes it committed and still is committing.

    The statement said that UNRWA was feeding the schoolchildren wrong and misleading information in an attempt to make them forget about their cause and history and finally their right of return.

    Palestinian children, according to UNRWA, should learn about the “Holocaust” and sympathize with the Jews and should not learn about their people’s Nakba and Zionist wars of annihilation waged against the Palestinian people that led to the occupation of Palestine and the displacement of millions of its people, Hamas said.

    The usual Despicable Tinhead Absurd Propaganda garbage link.
    Here's a more Neutral view of the dispute:

    Wiki
    So there you have it. About the only Government in the world that's a Holocuast Denier. (maybe Iran too).
    So you see how Tinhead, using a ridiculously biased link, Turns Institutional Holocaust Denial into a legitimate gripe.
    Tinmore is an anti-Israel Spammer with ZERO credibility.

    It is child-abuse to teach children to believe in the Holocaust myth. :doubt:

    I agree and was about to say so Myself.

    Despite hating Sunni-Man's views I was truly sorry to see him banned from so many boards I was on. He was a one-man wrecking crew- unwittingly destroying liberals, apologists, and 'anti-cough-zionists'.

    Even while liberal Westerners like alexa/tinhead are trying to Portray Islam as 'Christianity east', we have the abhorrent views of Real Muslim Sunni Man here to Suicide-Bomb any illusions.

    I read recently about the school system in Israel, sort of a mirror of this article but from the other side. In this case, Hamas doesn't want the Holocaust in the curriculum or any Israeli point of view of history, while in Israel, schools don't want to teach about the Nakba or any Palestinian point of view of history. Read about a proposal from two Israeli university professors that sounded ideal: textbooks that teach children both points of view and leave blank pages so that they can write down their own thoughts on the matter. Obviously it was rejected. The last thing either side wants to do is have its children know the terrible secret that both sides are people, not unlike one another, of flesh and bone, with two legs and no feathers. It's much easier to demonize your enemy, if your end goal is to eliminate him - and that's what both of these sorry actors, Hamas and the Israeli right-wing, seem to want to do to each other.

    The Holocaust is a fact of history to all but a few fringers, but Nabka, meaning catastrophe, is point of view about the founding of the state of Israel and the supposed consequences for some Arabs. Certainly, Israeli schools teach about the founding of the state and the fact that large numbers of Arabs left and they and their descendants are very angry about the whole matter. To try to teach any more than that in an authoritative manner would be to get into areas where it is impossible to sort fact from propaganda.

    Hamas, on the other hand, is arguing that the fact of the Holocaust should not be taught to Arab children. While Israeli children are taught the facts concerning various events of significance to both Jews and Arabs and are then free to draw their own conclusions about what happened, Hamas is arguing that Arab children should be denied that opportunity. There is no moral equivalence here; this is about freedom vs. oppression.

    The problem with teaching the holocaust to Palestinian children:

    One, it is irrelevant.

    Two , Israel uses it as an excuse to attack Palestine.

    Hey, don't you think if Israel wanted to they could just conquer Palestine and be done with it? They don't. Why? THEY ARE NOT THE AGGRESSORS! for shits sake, use logic.
