This year Gaza kids play ‘kidnap Israeli soldier‘ in summer camps. This is an example of indoctrinating children to hate, as well as training child soldiers, a war crime.  Run by Islamic Jihad, thousands of children between the ages of six and 16 are expected to take part in their summer camp.

It is important to draw a distinction between what is going on here and taking a trip to the firing range to shoot at some clay pigeons. These are thousands of children in war fatigues, attending a camp run by a terrorist organization, with an expressed aim to teach children to kill, murder, and kidnap.

Maurice Ostroff covers the issue in his recent Jerusalem Post op-ed Enlisting Child Stone Throwers and Soldiers is War Crime. In the piece Ostroff refers to the posting Attempted murder by rock: Comparative empathy, published on the CAMERA affiliated Cif Watch blog.
