Hypocrisy Gone Wild -- UN schools to teach the Holocaust™ to Gaza schoolchildren

GAZA (Reuters) - Hamas condemned the United Nations Sunday, saying it planned to teach Palestinian children in the Gaza Strip about the Holocaust -- but the U.N. agency which runs schools in the enclave would not confirm any change.
Branding the Nazi genocide of the Jews "a lie invented by the Zionists," the Islamist movement which runs the Gaza Strip wrote in an open letter to a senior U.N. official that he should withdraw plans for a new history book in U.N. schools.
A spokesman for the United Nations Relief and Works Agency (UNRWA), which educates some 200,000 refugee children in Gaza, said the Holocaust was not on its current curriculum. He would not comment on Hamas's statement that it was about to change.
In an open letter to local UNRWA chief John Ging, the movement's Popular Committees for Refugees said: "We refuse to let our children study a lie invented by the Zionists."
UNRWA spokesman Adnan Abu Hasna said: "There is no mention of the Holocaust in the current syllabus." Asked if UNRWA planned to change that, he declined to comment.
When a bureaucrat says the Holocaust™ was "... not on it current curriculum," he's telling the truth. What he doesn't add is that Holocaust™ indoctrination is planned for the next syllabus.
If this travesty goes thru, the Gaza schoolchildren might be able to see pics of German slave labor camps where the workers survived on less than minimum calories, thanks to the Allied blockade of German seaports and hygiene was a luxury, since the Allied Air Force bombed water treatment plants.
The Gaza kids can look at those pictures and say, "Gosh, between the Zionist blockade of the roads and seaports and the IAF bombing of our water and sewage treatment plants, we're living and being treated like we were in a slave labor camp."
Irish 4 Palestine has a good read on this farce.
