Doucheblogger™ Jumps In With Both Feet


Jodi Rodoren of the New York Times has a piece in the paper about Hamas schools teaching children Hebrew. The “partners for peace” in the Palestinian Authority don’t think it’s important that their kids learn the most important language for the only people within spitting distance who they could profitably trade with. Hamas, however, have different ideas:

“Through the Hebrew language we can understand the structure of the Israeli society, the way they think,” explained Mahmoud Matar, director general of the Hamas-run Ministry of Education here.

“The Arabic language is a basic thing for the Israelis, and they use it to achieve what they want,” Dr. Matar added. “We look at Israel as an enemy. We teach our students the language of the enemy.”

BTW, when we teach our kids Arabic here in Israel, we do not call it “the language of the enemy”. We reserve that for French. (Only kidding….)

So what did Doucheblogger™ Richard Silverstein have to say about this article?
