One hundred Arab children, aged 7 to 12, are attending a summer camp in eastern Jerusalem’s Issawiya village, which is under full Israeli control.

Israeli newspaper Yediot Aharonot reported that the Palestinian Authority (PA) is sponsoring the camp and the contents of the camp are dictated by the PA “Higher Council for Youth and Sports,” and emphasize nationalism.

The camp includes Krav Maga (contact combat) lessons, slogans denouncing Jews and about their fighting spirit, lessons on the “Nakba” (Israel’s victory in the war of Independence) and studies on “Palestinian heritage”. The ceremonies taking place there begin with the raising of “Palestinian” flags and the singing of the “Palestinian” anthem.

One of the songs taught at the camp includes the words: “We will not leave these lands, we will remain. We will remain here for millions of years.” In another song, a line reads “On all our lands we will continue to stand proudly without being humiliated on your land Palestine.” Another song reads “Justice will not disappear from north to south. This people will not die – liberty, liberty, liberty. This people wants liberty for our prisoners.”

As part of the camp, the children traveled to Jericho, which is under full PA control, and there were given Krav Maga classes taught by PA police forces.
