A Palestinian kindergarten that is internationally funded has been exposed as indoctrinating children in methods of terrorism, says NGO Monitor.

“Ironically, international donors work with this same kindergarten on projects aimed at protecting children from violence and exploitation,” says the Jerusalem-based research institute.

“On May 26, 2018, the Dar al Huda kindergarten in Gaza held a graduation ceremony that included the mock killing and kidnapping of Israelis by children dressed as combatants,” says NGO Monitor.

“The simulation included sophisticated equipment such as drones, body cameras, military fatigues, body armor, and sniper camouflage. Children wore headbands representing Palestinian Islamic Jihad (PIJ), designated as a terrorist organization by the U.S., EU, and others,” the watchdog adds.

Just eight days earlier, on May 18, 2018, says the monitoring group, “the Swedish government, together with Save the Children and the Palestinian Center for Democracy and Conflict Resolution (PCDCR), sponsored a workshop at the Dar al Huda kindergarten titled ‘Training of Teachers on Positive Discipline in Everyday Teaching.'”

NGO Monitor further reports that “according to the Swedish International Development Agency (SIDA), the Swedish government committed approximately $2 million to Save the Children for a 2017-2019 West Bank [Judea and Samaria] and Gaza project designed to ‘address the systemic nature of violence (corporal punishment/physical and humiliating behaviors, physical and sexual abuse) against children’ and to ensure that ‘such violations are reported, documented, and addressed, and violators are held accountable, and by supporting positive discipline approaches within society.’”

Funding over recent years, says the Israeli watchdog, has also come from Germany, Denmark, Italy, Canada and Norway.

The question is whether these countries are aware that their monies are going to fund a new generation of terrorists.
