My Family In Israel: One Direct Hit, Two Near Misses -- And The Brainwashing Behind The Rockets

"Instead, I’m going to focus on what I think may be the biggest hurdle today to a real and lasting peace – something that will ensure that my relatives will be hunkering and bunkering in shelters for many years to come. In one sentence: “They have to stop brainwashing their kids,” says Mattan.

For years, official Palestinian media, schools and cultural institutions have been breeding their younger generations for war – not peace. It simply can’t be denied at this point. And I don’t mean Hamas and Islamic Jihad in Gaza. While many of my colleagues still label these groups as militants (rather than death-worshipping terror cults), most Gazan youth have been so thoroughly indoctrinated that seeking peace with them would be like asking Americans to negotiate with al-Qaeda. Hopefully the recent blitzkrieg drove that fact home for most Western journalists, or at least more of them than before."
