    Default Hamas oppose Holocaust education

    Hamas don't want Palestinian children to know the truth

    Gaza's ruling Islamist movement Hamas has resisted suggestions that Palestinian children should be taught about the Holocaust in UN-run schools.
    The head of its education committee in Gaza, Abdul Rahman el-Jamal, told the BBC that the Holocaust was a "big lie".
    The UN is still making up its mind on the issue!

    Of course Palestinian schools should provide studnets with factual information about the holocaust, as about all historical events.

    In the same way, Israeli schools should provide students with factual information about the naqba, as about all historical events.

    Cool

    Palestinian children are learning about a holocaust every day of their lives - the zionazi holocaust that is slowly but surely eradicating their people from the face of the earth.

    In Europe or Britain, they call that cultural enrichment and diversity. So celebrate Hamas's diversity and look forward to the day that it happens in a school near you.

    They are UN schools. If the Hamas set up their own schools I would not expect an objective account of anything. But if the UN cave in on teaching the holocaust in UN schools then it will be a sad day indeed.

    While being taught that the holocaust is a lie could perhaps be worse than not being taught about it at all, I can see no reason whatsoever to keep children in ignorance of one of the most important historical events of the 20th century.

    First of all, it's Nakba. Secondly what historical help would it be to tell them their people started a war, and inflicted a great suffering on themselves?
    The book totally contradicts any post-modern theory claiming a “Palestinian heritage,” or Palestinian nation. https://palestineisraelconflict.word...-palestinians/

    From a Palestinian point of view I can see why they would not like their children taught about the Holocaust. After all it was the Holocaust, as an event, that led to the creation of a Jewish state. They don't want their children to know of these things. The establishment of Israel is a major humiliation to Palestinians and Arabs. And every war they started and lost since 1948 is a humiliation to them. So it is understandable that they don't want their children to learn the background to this humiliation. Also by teaching the Holocaust they would also have to show that their own leaders at the time supported the Nazis. They might have learned that if there had not been a Holocaust a Jewish state might not have been created..........but if there had been a Jewish state the Holocaust could not have happened. Maybe the Palestinian leaders take the view that a little bit of knowledge is a dangerous thing.

    I don't think Palestinians need much education about holocausts, since they've been the victim of one for the past six decades.
