What do recycling, first aid, and terrorist murderers have in common?

What could recycling, first aid, and terrorist murderers possibly have in common? Nothing, right?
But in the Palestinian Authority they are related - because they are all part of the program taught to kids at the PLO summer camps.
In a video posted by the PLO Supreme Council for Sport and Youth Affairs - an institution that arranges and runs summer camps in the PA - Palestinian kids explain what they learned at one such camp.
Young girls and boys describe that they have learned about recycling, first aid, and that sports help to keep a healthy lifestyle. But in between these positive educational messages, the kids were also taught that the Palestinians are “one hand against the enemies,” and that two terrorist murderers - Abu Jihad and Dalal Mughrabi - are among their leaders.
Significantly, one girl singled out these two killers who were involved the most lethal attack in Israel’s history - the Coastal Road massacre planned by Abu Jihad and carried out by Dalal Mughrabi - in which 37 Israeli civilians were murdered, among them 12 children. This is not surprising because both have been turned into role models for society by the PA, as documented by Palestinian Media Watch.



Girl: “At camp I learned about recycling, to use old things and turn them into new things...”
Boy: “At camp I learned about first aid, so that if an accident will happen or if there is an emergency at home I will be able to fulfill my obligation.”
Boy: “We have learned about national unity and that we are all one people and united against the enemies.”
Girl: "I learned from the camp that sport is a central thing in life, and that it maintains physical fitness...”
Girl: "We learned about [national] affiliation and about love of the homeland. I am part of it and it is part of me."
Girl: “We have learned about the Palestinian leaders and [military] commanders, including Abu Jihad and Dalal Mughrabi.”
