IMPACT-SE's Reports: Hamas

IMPACT-SE (formerly CMIP) published the following report on the Hamas website Al-Fateh:
Hamas Web Magazine for Children Incites to Terror,
Annihilation and Self-Destruction

May 2009 Update

IMPACT-SE recently completed its report on Al-Fateh (http://al-fateh.net), the Hamas web magazine for Children, which serves as its internet educational instrument, supports its ideology and terrorist activities, and serves as a platform for Hamas propaganda and indoctrination, especially of Palestinian, and more generally, Arab and Muslim, children. Politically, the website’s consistent message is a call for the destruction of Israel and the establishment of an Islamic state in its stead, and an armed struggle of violence and terror against all who are defined as the enemies of Islam, including the West in general. The site indoctrinates children to adopt the concepts of jihad and martyrdom and aspire to become not just fighters but suicidal martyrs, effectively preparing them to serve as the next generation of sacrificial instruments in the war of terror and annihilation waged by Hamas.

  • IMPACT-SE on German TV
    March 15, 2011
    IMPACT-SE's CEO Shelley Shandor Elkayam was interviewed by a newscast on German television about the widespread trend in Hamas education to deny the holocaust, as well about the tendency in their school education to deny reality and truth. Our point of view is that governmental authorities do not promote cultural understanding and cooperation by falsifying facts and by renaming sites which have been well-accepted for 1,700 years.

    IMPACT-SE’s efforts to affect positive change through its research and fight hatred, intolerance, and incitement against the West and the Jews have lead to an unprecedented success. IMPACT-SE presented MP Louise Ellman (Labour) with its report on the Hamas Web Magazine for Children (Al-Fateh) and illustrated the danger it poses for children in the Middle East and Britain. MP Ellman has since called on Prime Minister Gordon Brown and other ministers to block access to the site in the UK, invoking and quoting from the report.
