Hamas is planning to establish a military academy in the Gaza Strip for training and educating schoolchildren. Hamas Prime Minister Ismail Haniyeh announced Thursday that the new military academy, the first of its kind in the Gaza Strip, would prepare the children for the "phase of liberating Palestine."

He said that children in grades 7-9 could join the academy and graduate with a Diploma or Bachelor of Arts in military affairs.

Haniyeh was speaking during a ceremony in the Gaza Strip marking the birth of Prophet Mohamed. More than 10,000 schoolchildren attended the ceremony, which included a "military parade" by some of the teenagers.

He said that he has instructed the Hamas-run Ministry of Education to lay plans for the establishment of the military academy.

Haniyeh said that the new academy would educate and prepare children for the establishment of a Palestinian state "from the river to the sea."

The decision to establish a military academy follows Hamas's announcement that it would create its own "Defense Ministry" in the Gaza Strip.

The announcement was made shortly after the IDF's Pillars of Defense Operation in the Gaza Strip last November.

My visceral response? Jesus Christ! "From the sea to the river". If this world weren't so based on amoral categories, the normal response to this would be eliminate Hamas.

But as political scientists are prone to say nowadays, Hamas is a "political reality" that Israel has to live with. Obviously, any cooperation with Hamas would only hurt Israel; at the same time, since the entire Islamic world is psychotically unreasonable with regard to Israel's existence as a Jewish state, policy makers have to walk a tight rope, between supporting an autonomous Jewish state and maintaining good or serviceable relations with Muslim countries.

But still, to return to my visceral response. This is just unreasonable. And I think this may presage what non-Muslim countries can expect from an ascendant Islamist middle east 20 years from now. Europe especially.

So what?
They are building their "military academy" within whatever they have left of their land.

Surely the IDF with all its war machines are not afraid of school children and teenagers attending the "academy".

most other nations have their own similar methods to stream the young into military service and yet this is somehow wrong in comparison?

Well... you do know it's its anti-semitic and racist for people to disagree with the master race chosen people.

Doesn't Israel have Mandatory Military Service that everyone HAS to do?

Yet the Hamas School is open to those who "could join".
