Introduction:
The Palestinian Authority [PA] has named a summer camp for girls after the first woman suicide bomber - Wafa Idris. Idris murdered 1 and injured over 150 in Jerusalem, when she blew herself up on January 27, 2002. This is a continuation of PA policy of naming educational programs, schools, and summer camps after terrorists, including, suicide bombers.

The camp received UN funding through UNICEF.

The following is from the article that appeared in a PA daily:
“Yesterday, activities ended in the camp named after the Shahida [Died for Allah] Wafa Idris, for girls in the city of Kalkiliya. The camp was founded by the Scout general administration in the Ministry of Youth and Sports. The camp was under the supervision of the Scouts in the Kalkiliya Administration and about 100 girls from the organizing committee of the city’s Scouts participated.

“…[At the closing ceremonies thanks were given including] to UNICEF for its support of the camps.” [Al-Ayyam July 18, 2003] (PMW.ORG.IL 07/20/03)
