    JERUSALEM (AP) — Israel has condemned UNESCO's decision to establish a chair at the Islamic University of Gaza, calling the institution "a breeding ground for terrorists."

    Israel's foreign ministry said Thursday that "(Palestinian militant group) Hamas uses Gaza University laboratories to develop and produce explosives and rockets and has even run a course on explosive making."

    UNESCO said the chair is to promote astronomy, astrophysics and space sciences.

    We're playing with a deck of 54 Jokers when we deal with the UN. There's no dout about it.It has been that way for 64 years when Israel is in the mix.

    GAZA, (PIC)-- The Islamic university in the Gaza Strip strongly denounced Israel's objection to the UNESCO's establishment of a chair in astronomy, astrophysics and space sciences at the university.

    "As the university condemns the occupation's policies against everything Palestinian and its opposition of any Palestinian institution through distorting its image, it confirms that it is determined to continue its scientific role and mission and the development of its vital projects to serve and develop the Palestinian society," the university stated on Thursday.

    The university noted that the scientific achievements that it has made disturbed the Israeli regime prompting it to reject the UNESCO's step as it did when it had previously opposed Palestine's membership in the UNESCO and the endorsement of the Church of the Nativity as one of the world's heritage sites.
