He Who Controls the Youth, Controls The Future.

Hey folks,

While debating the topic of why I truly believe there is such a Liberal agenda in our public school system, the questioner was expecting a three to four page response from me. He was quite surprise when my total response was this.

“He Who Controls the Youth, Controls The Future.”

Another reason the Supreme Leader Wannabe Hillary is pushing to get kids into the system a year earlier. But if there was any doubt to the validity of this statement, one only has to look at Hamas. One only has to look as far as Nahool the Bee.

According to CSM -Hamas's approach to jihad: Start 'em young By Dan .

As a weapon in its struggle with Israel, Nahool the Bee doesn't look like a particularly threatening addition to the Hamas arsenal. He doesn't even have a stinger.

But what the bright yellow star of "Tomorrow's Pioneers" on Hamas-owned Al Aqsa television lacks in muscle he makes up for in fervor. Speaking in a recent episode, Nahool vowed to help take back Jerusalem from the "criminal Jews" and expressed his hope that he and all of his listeners would grow up to become holy warriors.

Suicide bombers.

The show, along with paramilitary-style summer camps for Gazan boys, reveal a key element in Hamas's long-term strategy.

Like Egypt's Muslim Brotherhood, which spawned Hamas, the group takes a patient approach to tapping religious conviction to build political support. It is the movement's youth focus, critics say, that sets it apart from Hamas's rival, Fatah, which controls the West Bank and enjoys US and Israeli support.

Rival? They are not rivals. Hamas is a terrorist organization. The bad guys. Fatah is not. Big difference.

The basic unit of the Hamas organization isn't cells or political committees – it's families. The organization has shown that by introducing children early enough to Hamas's hard-line Islamic thinking, it can recruit lifelong supporters.

"It hurts us so much when the international community misunderstands us," says Samir Abu Mohsen, a senior director at Al Aqsa. "Nahool isn't for teaching hate. It's for teaching children to think in the right way, to socialize them in our culture's way of life, and, of course, to remind them of their rights to the land that was taken from us."


STOP! Are you kidding me? "Nahool isn't for teaching hate?” Well, here you go folks, watch this Nahool Video, you judge for yourself.

In case you did not catch all that, here is the transcript.

Nahool: “You and we will liberate the sad Al-Aqsa that is waiting for us. Yes, we will liberate Al-Aqsa from the filth of the criminal Jews, who killed my grandfather, and killed Farfur, and history will bear witness to that…”

A young caller, Sabah, is asked what she wants to be when she grows up.

Sabah: “Journalist.”

Saraa', girl in studio: “Wow, journalist! Nahool, we need journalists.”

Nahool: "Why? So that… so that they will photograph the Jews when they are killing Farfur and the little children?

Saraa’: “Yes, Nahool.”

Another young caller says: “We will go on [the path] of Jihad when we grow up.”

Nahool: “Yes, we are all Jihad warriors.

Saraa’: “Allah willing.”

[Al-Aqsa TV (Hamas), July 20, 2007]

The killing of Farfur referred to by Nahool, the bee, was from a previous episode when beloved Farfur, the Mickey Mouse look-alike, was beaten to death by an Israeli interrogator. In an earlier program a child called in and insisted the Jews were dogs because they killed Farfur. So the propaganda may be working.

That’s NOT teaching hatred? Of course it is. Back to the CSM article.

Mohammed Ramadan, the young man who dons the Nahool costume and who also played Farfur before that character's televised martyrdom, says he's been "shocked" by international allegations that his characters teach children to hate.

"Look, Israeli aggression against us is a fact, they kicked these children's grandparents and parents from their homes, and we're not allowed to talk about this?" he asks. "They need to know."

They have not said that they would wipe YOU off the face of the map. The land is theirs.

Nevertheless, Mr. Ramadan says that he won't cross certain "red lines." "A red line would be telling children to go kill Israelis. But talking about our right to our land, to one day return? That's not a red line. That's what they need to know."

But you do Promote killing Jews.

"Nahool exists for two things," says Mr. Mohsen. "Teaching basic stuff like respect for adults, looking twice before crossing the road, and respecting the environment. But No. 2, we want to make sure they remember that we're exiles from our own land, land they have to be committed to regaining."

It’s not yours. The rest is bunk. Yes respect your parents. If they tell you to go strap a bomb on yourself, do it. Right? Get this.

"Life is so tough here we say our children are born men, but they're still just kids,'' says Mohammed, who runs the Abu Musab Hamas camp in central Gaza and asked that his full name not be used. As he speaks, rows of painfully polite 10-year-olds in green Hamas hats file off the beach at the end of the day. "They need entertainment and we give it to them, with a single goal: To get their attention so they develop good Islamic manners, bond their egos to the group, and integrate them into the right way of life."

Which is EXACTLY what the Liberal agenda is by the way. But this is NOT harmless camping folks.

Though Mohammed mentions soccer, public safety lessons, and basic Muslim teaching, he fails to mention that many of the Gaza camps also include a paramilitary element. A Hamas official says that such training is reserved for boys over 16, but a photographer who recently visited a camp in central Gaza and others say much younger boys also take part in paramilitary exercises.

In one Gaza City camp, boys practiced field drills with wooden pistols and crawled under barbed wire while being harangued by an adult drill instructor. Teenage boys undergo a tougher regimen that includes hand-to-hand combat and exhausting exercise. Boys that break discipline are sometimes beaten with sticks, said the photographer.

"Are the camps an important part of our strategy? Of course," says Museb Malik, who runs the First Educational Childhood camp where children are divided into groups named after cities – Haifa, Acre, and Japfa – that Israel now controls and Hamas would like to someday regain. "But we're also filling an important social function. These children need something to take their minds off of the violence."

Typical Liberal double talk. Translation? We are taking their minds off violence by teaching them violence?

Mehmet Gishrawi, a dimpled 9-year-old at the camp, stands beneath a poster of Sheikh Ahmed Yassin, the Hamas founder who was assassinated by Israel in 2004, and explains that he had trouble sleeping after he survived an airstrike two years ago that claimed his cousin and 20 other neighbors.

"I have had a lot of fun, I've learned a lot," he says. "I'm not as afraid now."

Yes, they are helping the kids. They are doing it all for the kids. It’s a good thing. Right?

I repeat, he who controls the youth, controls the future. It really is, just that simple.
