Graduation ceremony at a Hamas kindergarten in Gaza.
Check out the subtitles for the chant at 3:43 and ask yourself, at that age, what you wanted to be when you grew up, and what would have happened if you'd told a teacher that you wanted to die for God?

Do not ever say that the desire to "do good" by force is a good motive. Neither power-lust nor stupidity are good motives. (Are you listening Barry)?:mad:

They sure do:
That documentary shows what it's like growing up in Palestine and you can easily see what makes these kids filled with hatred and ready to pick up a gun and die when they are 12 years old

BTW, Death in Gaza has been thoroughly debunked. It's clumsy propaganda. A few points, though:
At no point in the film is the Israeli side shown. The context, a state of siege in which Arab states refuse any peace with Israel and use Palestinians as pawns, is ignored.
Even without intending to do it, the directors show the deliberate incitements in the Palestinianschools, culture of martyrdom and hatred of Jews that makes the region what it is. There rallies that call for shahids and glorify death would be horrific if shown in any other place (Imagine a German classroom in 1939 with a similar theme). But the film clearly shows a dysfunctional Palestinian culture based on hatred and a refusal to take responsibility.
The two Palestinian Aboys shown packing homemade grenades with explosives, and the one boy who provides a lookout for the terrorists are victims, but not of the Israelis. The use of children is as combatants or to support combatants is a war crime under international law.
Saira Shah states that Israeli gunfire was responsible for the death of film-maker James Miller. That's an impressive ballistic analysis, what with the shooting coming from all sides, in the dark. It wouldn't be the first time that Paleistinians blamed Israelis for a death that they, themselves, caused. In fact, the standard narrative in the Middle East is for Arabs to create a horrific situation and then blame everyone but themselves for it.
