Palestinian Summer Camp Named for Woman Suicide Bomber
by Itamar Marcus
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."
