Hamas is establishing a children's military academy in the Gaza Strip, the better to train schoolchildren in the pursuit of "liberating Palestine." The Jerusalem Post reports on a Thursday announcement describing the school by Hamas Prime Minister Ismail Haniyeh. The Iran-backed terror group has long embraced tactics marked by the use of child soldiers and human shields. Meanwhile predictions by some foreign policy analysts to the effect that seizing power would moderate the Iran-backed terror group, which is committed to the eradication of Israel, have yet to be confirmed.
