The United Nations Education, Science and Cultural Organization
(UNESCO) has decided to establish a chair at the Islamic University
The decision came as a shock to the State of Israel, which
expressed “consternation” at the news.
“The Islamic University of Gaza is a known hothouse and breeding
ground for Hamas terrorists,” Israel´s Foreign Ministry pointed out
in a statement issued Thursday.
“Only last month, the University´s Dean of Koranic Studies only
called for the Islamic conquest of the Vatican and of Spain.”
In its statement, the ministry accused the university of “poisoning
the minds of men for the cause of terror” despite the fact that
UNESCO´s motto is that “It is in the minds of men that the defenses
of peace must be constructed.”
Scientists and academics at the university double as Hamas
technocrats, warned the ministry. “The Islamic University serves as
an employment program and intellectual retreat for Hamas leaders."
“The university conducts lectures on Hamas´ radical ideology and
concentrates on hostility to Israel; Hamas uses Gaza University
laboratories to develop and produce explosives and rockets and has
even run a course on explosive making. The university is a warehouse
for weapons and a venue for secret meetings of military leaders.”
Hamas and the Islamic University believe in extremism, violence and
terror, Israel pointed out, “not ´Education, Science and Culture.´”
The chair established by UNESCO, emphasized the ministry, is linked
to a terror organization – thus further damaging UNESCO´s reputation.
