Israel Shocked by UNESCO Chair at Gaza Islamic University

(Israel Ministry of Foreign Affairs) The Israel Foreign Ministry Thursday expressed shock and consternation at the news that UNESCO is establishing a chair at the Islamic University of Gaza, a greenhouse and breeding ground for Hamas terrorists. Only last month, the university's dean of Koranic studies openly called for the Islamic conquest of the Vatican and of Spain. Scientists and academics at the university double as Hamas technocrats. The university conducts lectures on Hamas' radical ideology and concentrates on hostility to Israel; Hamas uses Gaza University laboratories to develop and produce explosives and rockets and has even run a course on explosive-making. The university is a warehouse for weapons and a venue for secret meetings of military leaders. Hamas and the Islamic University believe in extremism, violence and terror - not education, science and culture. That UNESCO should choose to establish a chair in such a university further damages UNESCO's reputation.
