UN Vs. Hamas?

leave a comment »

Not likely, the UN will roll over and more than likely give in, but the Torygraph reports on the dispute between them:

“A UN agency is producing a human rights curriculum which is to be proposed for inclusion in the studies of secondary school pupils. It is to be discussed with the local community within weeks.

At least one senior UN official in Gaza has said he is confident the Holocaust will become part of the curriculum adopted by local schools.

There is intense opposition from Hamas hardliners however.

Yunis al Astal, a Hamas member of the Palestinian Legislative Council, is reported to have said that including the details of the murder of six million Jews by the Nazis in school teaching would be “marketing a lie”. Those responsible for teaching the Holocaust would be committing a “war crime”, he added.
