Hamas: "Children fight alongside the adults in the resistance"

The Hamas promotion of terror and violence among Palestinian children continues unabated. This past week, Hamas placed pictures on its web site (see pictures below) of children in combat roles and combat dress, taken during "Palestinian Children's Festival" held in Yemen.

The third picture below shows a girl wearing a sash with the name Reem Riyashi on it. Reem Riyashi was a woman suicide terrorist who killed four Israelis.

Yemen News reported: "A Hamas representative [in Yemen] Jamal Issa … stated that the Palestinian children fight alongside the adults in the resistance."

These pictures were on the Hamas web site [www.palestinian-info.net] home page for a week, and can be seen today at this link:

It is somewhat ironic, that while this terror role-modeling for children is being glorified by Hamas, the actual celebration of terror for children took place in Yemen. This is the same Yemen, who according to US News and World Report last week: "has become one of America's most unexpected allies in counter terrorism." [March 13, 2006 page 38]
