Summer Camp?

That is what Reuter's says this picture portrays.

The caption reads, "Palestinian youths attend a summer camp organised by the Islamic Jihad movement in Gaza City July 30, 2008."

The Islamic Jihad, of course, is a terrorist group established with the goal of wiping out the Jewish state of Israel and the establishment of an Islamic Palestinian state. Their interests include Qassam rocketry, suicide bombings, and martyr operations.

This isn't a "summer camp" as we would recognize it. This is the modern Hitler Youth.

Wait, does that mean that Islamic Jihad is a right-wing movement?

I mean, it has to, right?

Hitler was a socialist, dummy. A leftwinger, through and through. If jihad actually were a rightwing phenomenon we might get some Democrats to take it seriously.

Sarcasm: Learn to pick up on it.
